Residents pray for the city of Youngstown, Ohio

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Downtown Youngstown’s Trinity United Methodist Church now hosts a weekly service where people are invited to pray for the city.

Community members are asked to pray for the city’s future, elected officials and school workers.

The C.S. Lewis Institute of Youngstown organizes the event. Institute spokesperson Daniel Osborn said it is important to remember the city’s spiritual health while working on the economic future.

“We are seeking God’s blessing on our city, on our mayor, on the developments as we move forward,” said Osborn. “It is really our desire that we lay a firm foundation for what lies ahead for the city of Youngstown.”

The prayer services are held at noon every Tuesday.
