Hundreds of residents set aside life’s distractions for a while Thursday to pray together for Forsyth County and the nation. As part of the National Day of Prayer, two events were held in the county. First Baptist Cumming held a prayer luncheon, drawing about 225 people, while a group called Pray Forsyth held a vigil on the courthouse steps that evening.
