Mississippi Governor Declares Day of Prayer

Ask the Lord for His protective hand over us.

On Wednesday, Governor Tate Reeves of Mississippi declared Sunday, December 20, as a Day of Prayer. He was joined by pastors from around the state when he made the announcement.

“Today, I am signing a proclamation to declare a Day of Prayer, Humility, and Fasting on Sunday, December 20th,” he said. “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.”

He said it was important for people of his state to continue to trust in God after the many challenges this year has brought.

“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,” Governor Reeves said.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That governors of other states would join with Governor Reeves in declaring December 20 a Day of Prayer, Humility, and Fasting.
  • That people, even those who are not in Mississippi, would heed the cry to go to God in prayer for the nation and for the Lord’s hand of protection over the United States and the coming year.
