Community Prayer for Antioch and America on July 4th

July 4, 2012 at 8:00 am

Antioch City Park, 10th & “A” Streets

As we celebrate the birth of our nation, join us in prayer as we re-dedicate our city to the spirit of Christ as our founding fathers envisioned.

Following are the words that appear on the plaque on the corner of 10th & “A” Streets, the site of the July 4th, 1851 picnic where the townspeople changed the name from Smith’s Landing to Antioch:

july 4, anno domini, 1951

This city was named 100 years ago for Antioch in Syria where the disciples of Jesus Christ were first called Christians. (acts 11:26) Today we rededicate ourselves to him in grateful memory of our founding fathers who envisioned a city and a world under the rule of the spirit of christ.”

The theme scripture verse for the Community Prayer is “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
