This week we’re revisiting another photo from a few years ago.
On May 5, 1994, Arkansas Lt. Gov. Mike Huckabee (seen in the photo above) delivered a speech at the National Day of Prayer rally held in Little Rock.
Lt. Gov. Huckabee discussed personal responsibility and rooting our lives in Jesus Christ.
This truly was a historic event that Family Council was proud to be part of. Arkansans gathered on the capitol grounds to hear Lt. Gov. Huckabee and pray for our state and nation. As far as we know, there never had been a gathering quite like this one ever before in Arkansas.
Events like this help inject a little more light and truth into the often-dark political discourse in Little Rock, and they remind Christians to “pray for those in authority.”
That’s why Family Council still hosts times for prayer and worship at the Capitol each year through our Pastor’s Day at the Capitol and our prayer meetings with public officials.
In this day and age, I think it’s safe to say our state and our country need all the prayer they possibly can get. Family Council wants to help make that happen.
