Milwaukee – Governor Scott Walker joined spiritual and community leaders today in Milwaukee for the annual Governor’s Prayer Breakfast, which coincides with the National Day of Prayer. Every year, this breakfast brings practitioners of different faiths and denominations together for a morning of prayer.
“While those of us gathered here may not practice the same faith or hold the same beliefs, we are all united by the power of prayer,” Governor Walker said. “Today, we join the people of our nation in celebrating a Day of Prayer. We bear in mind those who are ill, suffering, and facing hardship, and we continue to pray for peace and prosperity throughout the world.”
The Governor’s Prayer Breakfast was established in Wisconsin more than 40 years ago to recognize the National Day of Prayer, which was established by Congress in 1952. The theme for this year’s National Day of Prayer is “For Your Great Name’s sake! Hear us, forgive us, heal us!”
Governor Walker has also proclaimed today as a Day of Prayer throughout the state. A copy of his proclamation is attached.
