SLU Professor Helps Plan Global Day of Prayer Sunday, May 27, at Busch Stadium
Event Details: 7:00 p.m. – 8:45 p.m., May 27, Busch Stadium
ST. LOUIS – On Sunday, May 27, thousands of people from around the St. Louis area will gather at Busch Stadium, not for a Cardinals game, but to pray. This one-day prayer event, known as the Global Day of Prayer, will be celebrated in St. Louis from 7-8:45 p.m. at Busch Stadium.
Michael McClymond, Ph.D., associate professor of theological studies at Saint Louis University, is director of the program team for the Global Day of Prayer and has helped bring together dozens of North American and international Christians for the event.
McClymond also is the editor of the Encyclopedia of Religious Revivals in America (Greenwood Press, 2006) and a nationally-recognized authority on the topic of religious revivals and revivalism.
Global Day of Prayer is an inter-racial, inter-denominational Christian ecumenical event. The day of prayer began in 2001 when 45,000 people gathered in Cape Town to pray for South Africa. Since then, the event has grown into a massive, grassroots movement that in the last year brought together more than 300 million people in stadiums, arenas and churches around the world to focus on prayer.
In St. Louis, more than 10,000 are expected to take part in the two-hour prayer session. Traditional and contemporary praise music will be part of the event. Large video boards will feature music and scenes from locations around the world. This year’s theme is “Rivers of Living Water” and will include a special focus on racial unity in acknowledgement of the 150th anniversary of the Dred Scott decision, and the 170th anniversary of the death of Rev. Elijah Lovejoy, who was killed in Alton, Illinois because of his anti-slavery newspaper articles.
The St. Louis Global Day of Prayer committee is made up of local religious, political and business leaders. Members include Missouri Governor Matt Blunt, A. G. Edwards Chairman Emeritus Benjamin Edwards, Lynne Jackson, founder of the Dred Scott Heritage Foundation, and Albert and Denise Pujols. A complete list of local supporters is available at http://www.praystl.org.
