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.

Mayor Parker Wiseman, Rev. Joseph Stone, Sen. Gary Jackson, Michelle Lowe, Dr. Paul Miller and Dr. Paul Ruff will be among the speakers at this year’s National Day of Prayer observance in Starkville.
The event is set for noon May 1 at the Starkville Sportsplex. The public is invited to attend this year’s event.
The theme for 2014 is One Voice, United in Prayer, “emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men.” To further highlight the theme, Romans 15:6 is the scripture for this year: “So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
