Paducah Prayer Run

Pastors of eight churches of various denominational backgrounds have joined in an attempt to encourage the people of west Kentucky to pray during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Reidland Ministerial Alliance has launched PaducahPrayerRun.com. Keeping in spirit with the governor’s directive to stay home and stay safe the Paducah Prayer Run is a way people can virtually travel around the region praying for those effected.

At each stop an area pastor will, via video, give a short word of encouragement and lead a short prayer for a specific group impacted by the crisis. Participants will be led in prayer for first responders, medical personnel, the unemployed, the financially impacted, those sick, those grieving, students & teachers, and our government leaders. Participants will also have an opportunity to share their own prayer or prayer requests with that pastor by way of an online form. The site began April 15 and will be available to view for an indefinite amount of time.

Brian Brophy, associate minister of the Reidland Church of Christ says, “We wanted to find a way for the people of our region to join in prayer for so many people who have been hurt by this crisis. We really believe that God listens to our prayers and that they make a difference.” The Paducah Prayer Run is open to all people and can be found at PaducahPrayerRun.com.

Churches involved include:

• Rosebower Baptist Church.

• Gospel Mission Worship Center.

• Reidland Christian Church.

• Reidland Baptist Church.

• Woodlawn Church.

• Salt and Light Community Church.

• Reidland United Methodist Church.

• Reidland Church of Christ.
