ENID, Okla. — Enid’s National Day of Prayer observance will be moved indoors Thursday because of the threat of bad weather.

The observance will be noon to 1 p.m. at First Baptist Church, 401 W. Maine.

“We were going to do it at the courthouse Gazebo, but it is suppose to be 40 degrees and 30 mph north winds,” said Brad Mendenhall, lead pastor of World Harvest Church.

National Weather Service is calling for an 80 percent chance of rain Thursday, with a high near 43 and north wind at 18-24 mph, with gusts above 30 mph.

National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress and signed into law by President Harry Truman.
