    According to a preliminary schedule of the Harrisburg Ministerial Alliance, Bobby Gentry opens the program by speaking on the purpose of prayer and the Harrisburg American Legion Color Guard will present colors.
    There will be a prayer for government officials and law enforcement.
    Ministerial Alliance President Biff Moore will say a prayer for our nation.
    G.E. Coultas will say a prayer for the military personnel.
    A group from local schools will sing “God Bless America” and Dan Masters will say a prayer for schools.
    Elizabeth Moses will say a prayer for families.
    Terry Wells will say a prayer for churches.
    Biff Moore will say a concluding blessing.
    The service is expected to conclude about 12:30 p.m. with the crowd welcome to remain and eat lunch until 1 p.m.
    Shawneetown will also observe National Day of Prayer noon Thursday at the gazebo across from city hall with a rain date at the First Baptist Church.
