Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement today in honor of The National Day of Prayer:
“Today, I hope we all take a moment to reflect on the many blessings God has given us. Over the years, I have attended many ceremonies for The National Day of Prayer, and each of these gatherings has been reflective, inspirational, and encouraging. For me, I often find myself remembering my sixth grade teacher, Mrs. Spurlock. She was the first teacher to encourage me to consider a career in law and public service. A number of years ago, this warm and caring woman passed away on the National Day of Prayer. I can only hope to serve and encourage others just as Mrs. Spurlock did.
“I want to thank all the people who organize the Day of Prayer. Their dedication to service and to the encouragement of others is humbling.”
