March 2012 / Bott Radio Network Participates in Show Me Your Glory Lord at Missouri Capitol, Monday, March 26th
Missouri lawmakers, faced with difficult budget & policy decisions this
session, have requested prayer.
In response, Christians met at the Capitol on Monday, March 26th, to
pray for our state. Our intercession launched a 40-day period of prayer &
fasting, to end on May 4th, the day the state budget is due.
At 9:00 a.m., there were prayer walks inside and outside the Capitol, followed
by praise & worship on the front lawn. At noon, Dr. Alan Keyes (former US
Ambassador, author, & orator) and other leaders led prayer &
repentance in the Capitol rotunda. Approximately 350 people attended this year’s gathering.
Dr. John Yeats, Executive Director with the
Missouri Baptist Convention, gave the invocation.
Reverend Harold Hendrick, host of Encounter on BRN St. Louis, served as the Master of Ceremonies for the event.
Rich Bott, President/CEO of Bott Radio Network, brought greetings and read Galations 5:1, which says, "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."
Sue Stoltz, Bott Radio Network Area Manager for Mid-Missouri, gives the history of how legislators came to ask the citizenry for prayer support for the budget.
Dr. Keyes gave a powerful presentation on American liberty, human dignity, and the Christian’s place in the public arena. He emphasized the fact that ‘rights’ have no meaning apart from God and urged attendees to seek the Almighty and embrace the power of their faith in Christ.
