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.
Family Research Council is calling on churches nationwide to pause to pray for our country on Sunday, July 1. Watch the video below to learn more.
Below is an announcement about a prayer rally coming to Little Rock this October.
Victory Over Violence is hosting a city-wide Prayer Rally to gather the churches of Central Arkansas to pray for peace.
We will worship together, pray together, and hear from key leaders about opportunities for the church to meet the needs of our city.
The event will be held Monday, October 9, at 7 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
The Victory Over Violence Prayer Rally is a significant opportunity for the churches of Little Rock to put faith into action. Our churches are an integral part of the community, and it is time for us to come together and engage the need. Governor Asa Hutchinson will be among those speaking at the October 9 event.
“Our churches have always been a force for change in the community,” said Victory Over Violence co-founder Austin Kellerman. “We’re at a point where we need that force to help improve the lives of people across Little Rock. If we’re going to tackle this problem, we need people of faith to lead the way and put ‘love of neighbor’ in action.”
“We are inviting all Little Rock Pastors to participate and mobilize your church to attend the Victory Over Violence Prayer Rally,” said Logan Bloom of Arkansas for Christ. “In moments like these, God calls the church to gather as a regional body with a regional response.”
We would like to include all attending pastor in the program. Pastors are asked to RSVP if you are available to attend.
