May 2012 / Bott Radio Network Supports National Day of Prayer Service in the Missouri Capitol, Thursday, May 3rd
Bott Radio Network, supported by Sue Stoltz, Midwest National Area Leader for the NDP, and BRN Regional Manager for Mid-Missouri, promoted the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 3rd, consistently in 2012. The official prayer service at the Missouri Capitol, hosted by Paul Meinsen of Missouri Capitol Commission, drew approximately 200 Christians to intercede on behalf of our nation and leaders. The House and Senate both recessed in honor of the National Day of Prayer, so many lawmakers attended the prayer service.

About 200 hundred Christians from around the state gathered to pray in the Capitol rotunda and to hear remarks from Supreme Court Judge Zel Fischer.
Representative Tommie Pierson, Pastor of Greater St. Mark Family Church, also prayed for his colleagues in the House and Senate. Also on May 3rd, the Missouri Senate introduced Senate Resolution 2075, and the House passed House Resolution 959, which confirmed prayer as a national tradition and encouraged Missouri citizens to observe “prayer for the welfare of this state.”
Members of the House of Representatives listen to Judge Fischer. Attendees stood to sing the little-known 4th stanza of the national anthem, which spoke to the theme of the 2012 National Day of Prayer, One Nation Under God. “…Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n rescued land Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation! Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.” …”
The keynote speaker was Judge Zel Fischer of the Missouri Supreme Court, who spoke frankly about faith in the American story. Representatives of the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of government led in prayer for their colleagues. Military and law enforcement personnel did the same.
