The 2023 Governor’s Prayer Breakfast was inspiring and God honoring from start to finish. This annual event is non-partisan and is led by citizens of Louisiana who join together in a time of prayer for the leadership of our state which includes the Governor, the Legislature, and all state and local elected officials. Its purpose is to seek God’s guidance for all leaders and citizens of our State and to strengthen ourselves for the journey as we try to live as a responsible community of faith. It is an interdenominational event centered on the person of Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world and is intended to promote His glory.
I thank God for the ministry of the Louisiana Governor’s Prayer Breakfast. This year I served as the Chairman and the entire Governor’s Prayer Breakfast Team was incredible. I had the honor of serving with the Governor, First Lady, Keynote speaker Bishop Coffey, vocalist Charles Billingsley, Legislators and Pastors. Psalm 119:46 says, “I will also speak of Your testimonies before Kings and shall not be ashamed.”
Our theme was FAITH, NOT FEAR. We made sure we prayed at the Prayer Breakfast and did not just talk about prayer. A nun came up to me afterward and said, tongue in cheek, “We prayed so much at the breakfast, I will not have to attend church for a month.” LOL.
