Phenix City Mayor hosts fourth annual Unity in Prayer Breakfast

PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) - The fourth annual Mayor's Unity in Prayer Breakfast was held Thursday morning in Phenix City.

Phenix City Mayor Eddie Lowe invited the community to join him for prayer at the Martin Idle Hour Park Community Center.

They gathered in groups to pray for the protection for all public safety personnel, the Phenix City School System, unity and peace for all Phenix City citizens, and wisdom and grace for all elected officials.

"Our country was founded on the biblical principles of God's word and the most important part of his word is to pray," Mayor Lowe said. "And that's what we do here in Phenix City and I can tell you there's other communities that could take note of this and learn from us."

The guest speaker was Reverend Amy Parkes from Panama City, FL.
