6th Annual Mayor's Prayer Breakfast a success
Many gathered at the Amite City Hall at 7 a.m. on Thursday, November 20 for the 6th Annual Mayor's Prayer Breakfast. Attendees were welcomed by Mayor R. E. Goldsby, M.D. Mayor Goldsby then presented Pastor John Fulda of AMite Church of Christ to give the invocation.
Mervin Strothers of Cornerstone Church presented Mayor Goldsby with a silver cross from the church. It was presented in recognition for the Mayor continuence to have the prayer breakfast and allowing those to gather together at those times for prayer.
Reverend Joseph Ricard of Greater Refuge Temple gave the message. Preaching from 2 Chronicles, where the Lord God speaks to Solomon.
12"And the Lord appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for a house of sacrifice. 13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
This particular lesson shows that the Lord will be with his people when they humble themselves and accept His help. His people must pray and listen for a response and bid His will.
The attendees were then served breakfast and Randy Foulks gave a brief inspirational message and Rev. Don Campbell of Episcopal CHurch of Incarnation was to give the benediction.
