Forty Days of Prayer event to start October 1 in El Dorado

EL DORADO, Ark. - 2017 September 14

A campaign three years in the making is getting ready to kick-off in south Arkansas next month.

The city of El Dorado will host a "40 Days of Prayer" campaign in hopes of bringing the community together.

The event started after seeing positive results from similar efforts in Illinois.

A compiled list of 40 scriptures,  observations and prayers will be sent to local churches, and on the 29th day, there will be a community-wide prayer walk.

Creator, Judy Ward, says she began putting it together after a young boy's murder two years ago.

"We just thought then; it's time for our city to pray," she said. "All different groups, all different backgrounds to pray for our city and our unity in our community for our peace, for our crime rate."

Forty Days of Prayer begins October 1.
