The people's voice of reason

Eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. – Ephesians 4:3

Like so many of the Alabama Gazette readers, I strongly believe in the power of prayer, and I’m so very thankful to live in a nation where citizens can still gather for times of corporate prayer. Such an event will take place in our city on Thursday, May 3rd at the Alabama Activity Center on Dexter Avenue, 7am, at the annual Montgomery Prayer Breakfast.

Since 2004, and in conjunction with the National Day of Prayer, the Montgomery Prayer Breakfast has been a time of praise for our Lord and prayers for the protection of our city, state, and nation, uniting people of all denominations, and transcending politics and race. Participating in this annual breakfast brings much-needed encouragement in our troubled world as people actively and fervently engage in prayer for our city, state, and nation.

The Montgomery Prayer Breakfast also kicks off the annual Bible Reading Marathon, a 72-hour public reading of the Bible that will continue at the State Capitol at 8:30 am and conclude Sunday morning, May 6. Each year, individuals and families from all areas of Montgomery sign up for 15-minute intervals of reading and speaking the Word of God it over our city. It is truly a blessing for those who read as well as those who hear the Holy Scriptures. If you have an interest in reading during this marathon, there are still some sign-up slots available at

Tickets for the Montgomery Prayer Breakfast are $25 per person and can be purchased through His Vessel Ministries, 334.356.4478, or “You Name It” retail store at 5350-A Atlanta Hwy.
