Welcome to the
Mississippi Governmental Prayer Alliance!
The MSGPA was founded to build a relationship with our government officials and support them with prayer. Through this ministry we facilitate prayer teams into our Capitol during the legislative sessions to quietly pray, setting the atmosphere for righteous laws and justice to come in our state. We also encourage and mobilize intercessors across the state to pray strategically for the government in other ways.
MSGPA is directed by Pat and Jimmy Sullivan of Jackson, MS and Marion Neill of Hollandale, MS. Billy Joe and Ruthie, ROB, remain on the board of advisors.
MSGPA is an organization that exists to recruit, train, and mobilize intercessors across Mississippi for the purpose of praying for all levels of Government, their families and staff, regardless of their political or religious beliefs.
Our Mission is to fulfill the scriptural mandate of 1 Tim 2:1-4, by building a network of intercessors in Mississippi who pray for God’s will and purposes to be established in our state government.
- For Godly men and women to arise and occupy governmental positions –especially targeting the next generation
- That our lawmakers will release righteous and just laws in our state
- For God’s Holy presence to inhabit our State Capitol, and that an open heaven be established over Jackson, the governmental seat of our state
- Help tip the scales towards righteousness and Godliness in Mississippi and in the Nation through prayer and intercession
- Offer an opportunity to pray and worship with others from Mississippi in our Capitol
- Keep you aware via email of current issues facing our State
Visitor Tips and Prayer Points
As you enter the Capitol, you are a carrier of His presence! You bring the Kingdom of God into the Government of our state just by being on site. Thank you for visiting our Capitol!
- Please dress appropriately. Remember, you are representing His Kingdom as an ambassador. Your actions and appearance will honor the Lord and our governmental officials.
- You will go through a security check as you enter the building. Be sure you are not carrying anything in your purse or pockets that will not clear security. The security guards and staff of the Capitol have been VERY welcoming to us as intercessors. Your friendly behavior goes a long way in our continuing to be welcomed by them. They have a difficult job ensuring safety in our Capitol building. A ‘Thank You’ is always appreciated.
- You may take the stairs to the 4th floor or use the elevator. Once you are on the 4th floor, the House of Representatives gallery is all the way to the right at the end of the hall and the Senate gallery is all the way to the left at the end of the hall.
- You may go in and out as you like for both sides, so you can spend time praying for the House and then go over and pray for the Senate.
- Water bottles are allowed in the House gallery, but not in the Senate gallery if the senators are in session. If you have a bottle of water with you, the guard will usually allow you to leave it outside the Senate while you go in to pray.
- You may bring your Bibles or prayer books if you would care to do so.
