More than 100 Alabamians joined congressional leaders in praying for state and nation in Washington, D.C.
Special to the News
U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL); along with U.S. Sen. Katie Britt (R-AL) and U.S. representatives Robert Aderholt (R-AL-04), Terri Sewell (D-AL-07), Gary Palmer (R-AL-06), Barry Moore (R-AL-02), Jerry Carl (R-AL-01), and Dale Strong (R-AL-05); joined to host an Alabama Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C.
The members were joined by faith leaders from Alabama, including University of Alabama President Stuart Bell, Dr. Jim Carter of Monroeville, Pastor Troy Garner of Huntsville, and Birmingham Theological Seminary President Ike Reeder.
The leaders read passages from the Bible and took turns praying for our families, education system, churches, economy, and military. More than 100 Alabamians gathered in the Kennedy Caucus Room of the Russell Senate Office Building.
“Our uniting in prayer is more important now than ever because I think we can all agree that we are facing a lot of division and brokenness in our country,” said Tuberville. “And the solutions to these problems aren’t found in the Hall of Congress or the White House – but among God’s people. Our presence here today shows we recognize that God is the only one who can heal and restore. But first, America needs to turn back to God. That begins with you and me.”
Sen. Tuberville represents Alabama in the U.S. Senate and is a member of the Senate Armed Services, Agriculture, Veterans’ Affairs, and HELP committees.
