ROCKWALL, TX – May 6, 2021 — Rockwall County mayors invited the community to a prayer breakfast this morning in recognition of National Prayer Day.
The Rockwall Honor Guard kicked off the program, followed by a special time of worship music from Zane Latta with Ridgeview Church in Rockwall. Attendees welcomed an inspirational sermon and word of prayer from guest speakers Fred and Mary Kay Posey of Walking In Love Ministries. Rowlett city councilman Brownie Sherrill then recognized the Poseys by presenting a plaque in their honor.
In his introduction of the program, outgoing Rockwall Mayor Jim Pruitt read out a proclamation recognizing May 6, 2021 as the National Day of Prayer in the City of Rockwall.
“It is important to us to honor not only our citizens but to our country. I invite all of our citizens to join me every day in praying for our country, our state and our city,” Pruitt said.
The U.S. Congress established the National Day of Prayer as an annual event in 1952 by a joint resolution signed by President Harry Truman. The law was amended and signed by President Ronald Reagan in 1988, officially designating the first Thursday in May for its observance. The them for this year’s National Day of Prayer is “Lord, pour out your love, life and liberty”, based on 2 Corinthians 3:17 which reads, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
