Rep. Kathy Richardson (R-Noblesville) was honored her pastor, John Davis of The First Christian Church of Noblesville, led the Indiana House of Representatives in prayer on the first day of the 2012 legislative session.

“I am honored Pastor John and his wife Stacey came to lead us in prayer. It is always such a special day for me when they come to the Statehouse,” said Richardson. “He gave a beautiful prayer, as he does every year, and it set a lovely tone for how session should operate.”

As caucus chairperson, one of Richardson’s duties is to manage the Minister of the Day program. Before the opening of session each day, members of the House of Representatives have the opportunity to invite religious leaders from their communities to lead the House in prayer.

“I feel it is so important to start session each day with prayer. It gives us all a chance to reflect on what truly matters,” she said. “Times are very tough for many and I appreciate the opportunity each day to say a prayer for those that are in need and to ask for guidance.”
