Ripon community members gathered Thursday night to participate in the 62nd annual National Day of Prayer, which drew hundreds of thousands of participants across the country. Earlier in the day, about 70 school board members, teachers and parents gathered at Downey High School in Modesto to pray for schools, students and education. Two other events were held in Turlock, while a Modesto church encouraged people to pray a 'concert of prayer' throughout the day wherever they were. Above, churchgoers at First Christian Reformed Church in Ripon bow their heads in prayer.
