CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – “Pray to God to give somebody another chance,” the rev. Mikie Ash told those in attendance at the National Day of Prayer breakfast on CU’s campus.


“Pray in times of joy,” Ash, pastor of the Mt. Union Baptist Church in Allendale, said, “And pray in times of trouble, always interceding for others. Lift each other up and turn everything over to the Lord. If you don’t pray, you have no power.”


After his message, the prayer for our nation was led by the rev. Joe Hatchett, pastor of Campbellsville Christian Church.
