Prophetess Gerry Claytor stands by herself in prayer in front of Bridgeport City Hall at 45 Lyon Terrace.
She is part of a group of people who join in what they call “The Power of a City Prayer.” They meet at the same location the last Thursday of every month and take turns reading biblical scripture that relates to good governance.
It was raining all day long. But that didn’t deter Claytor.
She said, “Other members of the group didn’t come tonight. It’s understandable. Most of them come from other cities and the weather has been very bad all day long. But for me, to do this is very important, so I will do the program by myself.”
The program included 36 passages from the Holy Bible — all of them related and intended to bring unity and tranquility among city residents and government. One of the passages said, “ Father, we declare that Your people in this city are called holy people, the Redeemer of the Lord. We call this city sought out, a city not forsaken. (Isaiah 62:12)”
Another was “Father, we decree that You are making our city to be a city on a hill, whose light cannot be hidden. (Matthew 5:14).”
The next prayer meeting will be on Dec. 22, at 6 p.m. It was organized by Prophetess Gerry Claytor Ministry, “a church without walls.” For more information call (203) 260-3953.
