Over 75 people braved threatening skies to attend Williston's National Day of Prayer ceremony at noon Thursday.

Speakers, representing more than a half dozen churches, took turns praying for the country, state, leaders and families during the hour-long service held at the gazebo in Heritage Park.

Williston Mayor R. Gerald Hethcoat led the attendees in "God Bless America" before the prayer service was concluded by the Rev. Charlz Caldwell, who delivered the benediction.
