Prayer Service Held by Governor on Monday

Gov. Brian Kemp held a prayer service at the Georgia Capitol Monday morning as restaurants were given the green light to reopen amid ongoing concerns over coronavirus.

More than a dozen faith leaders, almost all from Christian churches, spoke inside the Capitol building. While the service was not open to the public, it was well-viewed online with more 11,000 people at one point tuning in to a live video stream on Facebook.

The speakers prayed for the health and safety of Georgians, as well as for the state’s elected officials to make wise decisions as Georgia slowly resumes business operations.
