“Prayer and Praise” was the theme for the annual Greensburg-Jeannette NAACP Prayer Breakfast.

Attendees filled the air with both at the March 2 event in the Christ Our Shepherd Center in Unity.

Organizers built their time of praise and worship around these verses from the Bible’s book of James: “Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. … The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

Guest preacher was Alycia Goodson, minister at God’s Re-Creation Christian Center in McKeesport.

Ruth Tolbert is the NAACP branch president and Adrienne Russell is the religious affairs chairperson.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
