Viewpoint: Support the Mayor's Prayer Breakfast

Coming up next week, The ALDON (Albany-Dougherty National) prayer committee will sponsor the 39th annual Mayor's Prayer Breakfast.

This year's speaker will be Dr. Mel Blackaby, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Jonesboro.

The breakfast will be held Thursday, February 16, 2012 at Hilton Garden Inn, on Front Street in Albany. The event will begin at 6:30 a.m.

The purpose of the breakfast is to join in prayer with others for our city, nation, and world. The committee believes that prayer is the key to bringing about positive change that will ensure a productive and safe future.

As a result of this program and others the committee hopes to keep this community united with its local, state and national leaders.

The Mayor's Prayer Breakfast was begun in 1973 by the Albany Chapter of the Christian Business Men's Committee".

This organization was chartered in 1967 as a part of a national committee, whose purpose was to bring together the business and professional leaders of Albany, into unity with the elected officials of the community.

We hope you will support this very successful annual event.

The motivational program will present a vision for the future, which promotes open and honest communication for both groups.
