BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - A prayer vigil was held at the Bossier Civic Center on Wednesday, Jan. 20, at 10 a.m. to watch the presidential inauguration take place. The event started with the singing of the national anthem and prayer.
Praise Temple Full Gospel Baptist Cathedral Pastor, Bishop L. Lawrence Brandon, titled the event “Healing of the Land Prayer Summit.”
Dock Voorhies attended the event and said he is excited to see what the future holds.
“The theme for today is healing of the land we’re praying for a healing of the land and we can come together and do God’s business and let democracy rise.”
One thing he wishes to see is unity.
“I’m just overjoyed, but more importantly, I want to see democracy, I want to see America return to its old glory in the world we got some healing to do, and I want to heal to begin today,” he said.
Seeji Sing sung the national anthem at the ceremony, and she is feeling encouraged after the inauguration.
“I feel positive about it, optimistic that I have somebody that I can relate to when I look at political stuff,” she said.
Sing says she wants to see change this term.
“Systematically, equality when it comes to different races across the board that’s what I would like to see,” she said.
