From Starkville’s observance of the National Day of Prayer 2014


 

 

Voice of the people: Gwen Sisson

Β I would like to thank the Starkville community for the wonderful turnout at this year’s Starkville observance of the National Day of Prayer. I would like to thank our speakers: Mayor Parker Wiseman, Rev. Joseph Stone, Rev. Giles Lindley, Marvell Howard, Dr. Paul Miller, Dr. Paul Ruff, Michelle Lowe and Sen. Gary Jackson, for the incredible job they did sharing their personal perspectives on prayer. I would also like to thank Tom Jenkins who set the tone for the day’s event with his musical talents.

What a wonderful time we had this week. It was a wonderful opportunity to unite for a time of prayer for Starkville, Oktibbeha County, Mississippi and the United States. Communities throughout the nation also took time out of their busy schedules to pray together. It was a special way to unite the community and the nation, and I am very happy to be part of such a special event.

I would also like to thank Michelle Tehan of The Biscuit Shop, Lynette McDougald of University Florist, Jay Yates at The Veranda, Carolyn Abadie of the BookMart and Cafe, Vicki Leach of Miss Vicki’s Custom Cuisine, Arma Ruth DeLaCruz of Eat With Us Group, Katharine Hewlett of the Palmer Home for Children and Wendy Brewer of Starkville Flooring for their donations to the event. Thank y’all so much!

If you were unable to join us, you truly missed a special blessing. Please make plans to join us next year on the first Thursday in May for Starkville’s observance of the National Day of Prayer.
