Congresswoman Terri A. Sewell (D-Birmingham) attended the National Prayer Breakfast held Feb. 2 inside the Washington Hilton Hotel with two faith-based leaders from the 7th congressional district of Alabama.

The Rev. Roy Ferguson of St. John Missionary Church in Tuscaloosa and the Rev. Gary Crum of Ellwood Community Church in Selma accompanied Sewell at the event.

Held annually, the breakfast provides an opportunity for political, community and faith-based and business leaders from all over the world to come together to pray and reflect upon issues facing the nation and the world.

Sewell said she was delighted to attend Thursday’s event with spiritual leaders from her district. Sewell said leaders can strengthen and uplift their communities together to help make the future brighter and move America forward.

“Now more than ever, we need to unify and work to bridge barriers and create solutions to the most pressing issues facing our country and our world,” Sewell said.

“I look forward to praying with my colleagues and reaffirming our commitment to strengthening the American family by creating opportunities for all to succeed.”
