'Kingdom warriors' to gather in park for public prayer

loberle@islandpacket.comNovember 2, 2013 

A local woman is hoping to gather dozens of like-minded thinkers in Beaufort County for "Pray-z in the Park," a public prayer session, at 1 p.m. Nov. 2 at Martin Luther King Jr. Park on St. Helena Island.

"With Pray-z in the Park, we want to join forces with other prayer warriors and intersectors and pray for all the problems and issues, not only with children, but throughout our nation," said Carrie Major of St. Helena Island. "They're focusing on a particular item. One person will be praying for our country, one for the state, one for our county, one for children, one for family and so on."

The event will bring together members and leaders of area churches, whom Major called "kingdom warriors," to pray. Choirs from various churches will perform.

"The expectations I have are that the persons the Lord has given me as 'kingdom warriors' are going to pray, and there's going to be change in the community," Major said.

Major is a member of Bethesda Christian Fellowship Church on St. Helena Island. She has led the annual Beaufort County Youth Conference for the last 21 years, and has served on various boards for area nonprofits, including Collaborative Organization of Services for Youth.

"The community is my heart, and making our community better is what I desire," Major said.
