Gov. Haley Calls for Statewide Day of Prayer Next Week

The event will happen on November 22.

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is calling for a day of prayer vigils throughout South Carolina next week. 

The day will be Tuesday, November 22, just two days before Thanksgiving. Haley wants everyone--regardless of faith--to pray for continued strength and healing, and to give thanks for the state's blessings. The vigils will be held in a houses of worship at 12 p.m. when bells will ring in observance of services statewide.

"Faith, prayer and helping our neighbors is what got us through a challenging time last year, and those things will get us through these two trials and the aftermath of the hurricane," said the governor in a statement. "In South Carolina, we know how to have compassion toward each other, count our blessings, and remember that we are one state, one people."
