Local mayors will pray for community

Mayor Dean Ueckert of Lewisville, Mayor Melissa Northern of Flower Mound, and Mayor Scott McDearmont of Highland Village are scheduled to participate in the 13th Annual Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast this Wednesday, May 2, at 6:45 a.m. in the Family Life Center of Lakeland Baptist Church in Lewisville.

For the past twelve years this event has been an opportunity for community and business leaders to come together and pray.  Special emphasis is placed on prayer for law enforcement, elected officials, schools, pastors, churches, and our military.

Patterned after the Annual National Prayer Breakfast held in Washington, DC, the event is designed as a time for re-dedication of individuals and our communities to God. The purpose of the Prayer Breakfast is a public gathering and honoring of God through prayer, music, speech, and God’s Word.

This year’s breakfast will involve many businessmen, clergy, and citizens of our communities and will feature Dr. Charles Lowery as the keynote speaker and special music by Michael Bleecker of The Village Church.

Dr. Charles Lowery (pictured above) uses humor and his experience as a psychologist and pastor to provide entertainment and encouragement. He is the president and CEO of Lowery Institute for Excellence, a non-profit and consulting organization.

Dr. Lowery’s background includes private practice, college professor, management consultant, and corporate motivator. Dr. Lowery has helped to train and motivate sales forces, management teams, and employees from companies across America. He speaks to over a 100,000 people a year.

“Charles is a talented psychologist who gives practical, humorous, down-to-earth approaches to business communication, understanding relationships, and life,” said famous motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar.

The Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast normally attracts 400 to 500 people. The host committee expects a sellout crowd this year as Dr. Lowery brings his dynamic style of speaking to Lewisville.
