RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - May 2 Mimms Funeral Home and Cremation Center held a community wide National Day of Prayer service Thursday at its chapel on Hull Street in Richmond.

The theme was “LOVE ONE ANOTHER” and was taken from John 13:34.

Organizers say they are more than a funeral home and share in the concerns of the nation.

James Toney said it’s a time to reflect on not on only the bad events of the year, but also the positive.

“It gives people time to reflect over an annual period of time, over a year," Toney said. "Things that happen, natural disasters, even triumphs, you know, things that are positive.”

Nationwide, several events are being held to honor National Day of Prayer.

The national observance in Washington, DC starts at 7:30 p.m.
