NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - (KTRE) - The annual bible reading marathon, kicked off Sunday afternoon in downtown Nacogdoches.  The 90-hour total marathon started at 1 p.m. with the Book of Genesis.

It continues until Thursday which is the National Day of Prayer.

Readers volunteer for minimum 30 minute time-slots, but many of them alternate so they can read for longer periods of time.

"It's not just ten percent of our wages, it's ten percent of who we are. We need to devote our worship to him," said Ryan Davis, bible reader.

Readers are still needed in order to make the 90-hour marathon a success. If you want to sign up for a time-slot, just call the Healing Center of East Texas Regional Coordinator at 936-569-7729.
