This is a unique opportunity for us as a community to gather in God’s name to pray for our community, state, and nation…something much needed at this time. The Rhea County Prayer Breakfast has a desire to encourage godliness in business and community life, and to be an example for those who will follow us in leadership, while thanking God for His faithfulness and blessing.
