STANLEY, N.C. – Approximately 35 people gathered at the United Action of Stanley Churches (USAC) Welcome Center at 9 a.m. this morning, June 13, for a Prayer Walk.

In addition, dozens more conveyed that they could not be there but would be praying.

Organized by United Action of Stanley Churches, Rev. Dr. Claude Williams, Pastor Noel Sweezy and Bill Ward the Prayer Walk was billed as NOT a march, vigil nor protest, no political inferences, no signs, just members of the community coming together to pray, in unity, for the town, the state, and the nation.

The walk lasted about an hour with two groups walking in Stanley.

One group proceeded NW on Highway 27, crossed the tracks at the old 1st UMC campus and back down Main Street to the clock. The second group traveled SE on Highway 27 and across the tracks in front of Stanley hardware to the clock.

During the walk various local pastors led prayer, singing “Amazing Grace” and praying individually.

Afterwards, several stayed around to discuss the importance of carrying this effort forward to positively address current events.

2 Chronicles 7:14
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
