A time to pray

Kyle Rote Jr. to speak at breakfast

Kyle Rote Jr., who, at the pinnacle of his career as a professional athlete took a year off to work with Mother Teresa, will be the guest speaker at the 2009 Cleburne Christian Leadership Prayer Breakfast, set for March 2 at Cleburne Bible Church.

Singer, musician and author Kim Wickes will be the featured musical guest.

“Initially we thought we might not even have the breakfast this year due to the lack of facilities,” said Lonnie Holliday, prayer breakfast founder and committee chairman. “We’ve always held it at the Cleburne Civic Center, which is undergoing extensive remodeling.”

“Cleburne Bible Church stepped up and said we could use their new facility,” Holliday said. “Their hospitality and help have been superb.”

The Prayer Breakfast, which began in 2004 and is co-sponsored by the Cleburne Christian Business Club, serves as an opportunity for Christians of all denominations to come together to pray for the community and nation.

“Our hopes, in coming together as a body, are to extend to each other the hand of friendship and Christian love,” Holliday said. “There is power in prayer, and I think it is very important that we will be able to gather as a community again this year to pray for our country and its new leader.”

Tickets for the event are $5, which will include a continental breakfast, and are available from committee members and at the Cleburne Chamber of Commerce. Tickets will not be sold at the door, and a ticket must be presented at the time of admission to the event.

In addition to the prayer breakfast presentations in word and song, two former Cleburne residents will take part in the program.

Retired Air Force Col. Jeff Beene will be honored for his 26 years of service to his country, and Wes Yeary, recently named chaplain of the athletics program at Baylor University, will deliver the invocation.
