Lawmakers from both houses passed a resolution forming the Mississippi Legislative Prayer Caucus, a prayer group at the Capitol.
The state is following the lead of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, which began meeting in 2005 at the United States Capitol to pray for the nation.
According to Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, Mississippi is the first state to join with the Congressional Prayer Caucus. Sen. Perry Lee of Mendenhall will chair the group, though the chairmanship will rotate each year between members of the state House and Senate.
Bryant said legislators will be praying for the concerns of constituents and for guidance in the work they’re doing at the Capitol.
