Wednesday, Gov. Tate Reeves was joined by pastors from across the state to declare a voluntary day of prayer.
“Today, I am signing a proclamation to declare a Day of Prayer, Humility and Fasting Sunday, Dec. 20,” Reeves said in a statement. “As we’ve done throughout the history of this country, we will go to the Lord and ask for his protective hand over us as we enter 2021.”
While there have been many challenges throughout this year, from flooding, tornadoes and especially COVID-19, it is important for Mississippians to trust God, the statement continued.
“As we close out this year, I felt the need to go to God in prayer for our state, together. There is power in prayer. It is what God commands us to do,” Reeves said.
