JACKSON, Miss. (WTOK) - Gov. Tate Reeves has signed a proclamation to declare Dec. 20 a voluntary ‘Day of Prayer, Humility, and Fasting’. He was joined by pastors from across the state for the announcement on Facebook.

“As we’ve done throughout the history of this country, we will go to the Lord and ask for his protective hand over us as we enter 2021,” said Reeves Wednesday.

The governor noted the challenges of 2020, flooding, tornados and especially the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As we close out this year, I felt the need to go to God in prayer for our state, together. There is power in prayer. It is what God commands us to do,” Governor Reeves stated.
