ASCENSION PARISH, La (NBC33) — In Ascension Parish, local officials and business leaders came together with area residents today for parish president Tommy Martinez's annual National Day of Prayer Luncheon.
The program featured praise and worship from a church in St. Amant, along with words of prayer for our military, business, education, and government leaders.
Special prayers were given for our churches, families and the media that influences so much of what we see and hear.
This year's turnout was the biggest ever. This is the fifth year Ascension Parish has held the luncheon.
NBC33's Jeanne Burns spoke at the event.
