In wake of the recent shootings in Dallas and across our nation, as well as other tragic and disturbing news we hear almost on a daily basis, Webster County’s newly appointed Judge Executive Steve Henry has issued a countywide invitation to prayer.

I spoke with Judge Henry this morning via cell phone. He tells me the invitation to prayer will be held Thursday morning at the Webster County Courthouse. If the weather cooperates, he hopes the event will be held outside on the front steps.

Judge Henry feels it’s time for the country to go back to what it was built on.

In case you missed my story earlier this month, Judge Henry, of Providence, was recently appointed as Webster County’s judge-executive by Governor Matt Bevin. He is a life-long resident of Webster County and was the first 911 Coordinator for Webster County while working for Fiscal Court. In 1994, he began working in the coal mining industry, where he was a manager for the past ten (10) years. In addition, Henry has been a member of the Warrior Coal Mine Rescue Team and President of the New Hopewell Cemetery.

The invitation to prayer at the Webster County Courthouse in Dixon will be held at 8:30 a.m. Thursday and, again, everyone is invited to attend.
