Mayor Initiates Prayer for Community
“This is exactly what our country needs. We need more prayer. We need more people helping each other. We need more prayer breakfasts just like this one,” said Donald Peek Jr.
Franklin Mayor Steve Barnett’s first prayer breakfast drew about 280 Franklin residents and service members early Saturday to discuss the meaning of prayer and to pray for the people in the community who work together to make city what it is.
Most of the money raised by the event will go to the mayor’s Youth Leadership Council. But some will be set aside for next year’s prayer breakfast, if needed, as Barnett said he hopes to make it an annual event.
