All are invited to attend and be a part of this wonderful effort. I want to personally encourage all R3publicans who are believers to attend this event and add to the prayer cover being called for on February 1st and throughout this legislative cycle. We need to make sure that prayer covers our state reps at the front end of all that is done this legislative cycle. I want to thank Dave Mehlhaff for letting me know and for his efforts coordinating this special event.
On a recent trip to DC, I sat in the galley of the house and prayed alone, but there were not other believers all around praying also. What an awesome opportunity! I hope you will be there physically if at all possible and in the spirit if not there in the flesh. Mark your calendar, set your clock, let your friends know about this important time to unite in prayer for all the leaders in our land and especially Oklahoma.
It is a biblical command to pray for our leadership for our own good!:
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
I Timothy 2:1-4
On Super Bowl Sunday — February 1, 2009 the day before Oklahoma’s 54th legislative session begins, the fifth annual Legislative Prayer Gathering will be held at the State Capitol.
The event will be held on the floor of both the house and senate chambers from 2:00 to 3:00 PM. Participants will be offered the opportunity to actually sit in the chair of their state representative and/or senator and pray for that office holder (and others) for one hour.
The hope is to have each of the 101 seats in the house chambers as well as each of the 48 seats in the senate chambers occupied with citizens in prayer for that hour. To fulfill this goal, at least 149 participants are needed. Additional seating is available in both the house and the senate gallery. Participants are encouraged to park on the west side of the capitol and enter the west side of the building through the doors under the green awning. Guides will be present to provide direction.
Special thanks to Rep. Mike Reynolds, Sen. Jim Reynolds, Prayer Force One, Bott Radio Network, the Oklahoma Family Policy Council, http://www.PrayerMetro.com, Barnabas Ministries Inc., Reclaim Oklahoma for Christ, and Oklahoma Conservative PAC for sponsoring this event. Other groups are invited to participate and all are encouraged to attend and pray for our nation and our leaders in Oklahoma.
