Pray for America Rally Tour makes stop in Utica

By NEWSChannel 2 Staff

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - A bus traveling coast to coast with people asking everyone to pray for America and "the seven pillars of power" made a stop in the city of Utica Monday at the Redeemer Church.

The bus tour is a spin off of the National Day of Prayer efforts, with those seven pillars of power that are focused upon being government, the military, education, the media, family, church and business.

"We have three 'E's.' We want to engage people in prayer, challenge them to pray for America," said Dion Elmore of the National Day of Prayer Task Force. "We want to encourage them as we go and we want to equip them with some tools."

The National Day of Prayer traditionally happens the first Thursday in May.
