Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast Set For May 2nd
The City of Rockwall will host the Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, May 2nd at The Center in Downtown Rockwall at 7:30am, 108 E. Washington in conjunction with the annual National Day of Prayer. Mayors from cities in Rockwall County will be in attendance. The Speaker this year will be Missionary Dub Lewis, and the theme of this year’s event is “Pray for America.”
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our hometown to come together in prayer for our nation,” said Rockwall Mayor David Sweet. “I think it is particularly important considering the tragic events in West, Texas, Kaufman County, and Boston. No matter what your religious affiliation or beliefs, please join us and pray for America.” There will be two other opportunities for the community to come together in prayer on May 2:
- Community Noontime Prayer: 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the grounds of Rockwall City Hall, 385 S. Goliad St. Prayers will be offered by pastors and community leaders.
- Evening Prayer and Worship: 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Harry Myers Park Amphitheatre, 815 E. Washington (East Entrance). Worship and prayer geared to families and youth.
The first Continental Congress called for a National Day of Prayer in 1775 as did Abraham Lincoln in 1863. Congress established National Day of Prayer as an annual event by joint resolution signed by President Truman in 1952. The law was amended and signed by President Reagan to officially designate the first Thursday in May as the official date.
All that want to pray for our nation are encouraged to do so. The events are not political, but rather meant to encourage people county-wide to join their neighbors in a call to pray for our nation as our national leaders will do in Washington D.C.
There is no charge for the Rockwall Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast but donations will be accepted.
