I'm a firm believer in the power of prayer, and even though prayer is certainly something to be done many times every day, it's great when city and community leaders gather together to recognize the need for prayers for those serving the needs or our area. 

Today at noon at the Lufkin City Hall atrium, area representatives will gather and offer prayers tailored for their line of work or business.  For instance, we'll have folks representing government, education, law enforcement, military, church and others.  I feel very honored in that I'll be offering a prayer representing the media of our area.

Please come on out and spend your lunch with us at the 60th annual National Day of Prayer.
