Pastor Kevin Cosby, Sr. Pastor, St. Stephen Church and President, Simmons College of Kentucky was keynote speaker.  His message was entitled, When Prayer Gets Abused. 

Prayer gets abused when prayer hurts someone else; 2)When prayer hurts ourselves; 3) When prayer is a substitute for intelligence, 4) When prayer turns God into an errand boy; 5) When prayer is a substitute for faith/action.  “There has always been prayer, and there will always be prayer, but, there has to be more than prayer,” said Rev. Kevin Cosby.  “You have to pray and work.”

For the fourth year, Jesus Saves Ministries served as the coordinating ministry for the event, providing guest speakers, volunteers and support in several areas, our largest project of the year.   The prayer breakfast drew more than 300 attendees.  To God be the glory for the things He has done!
