In Denton County, we are fortunate to have elected officials that represent their constituency well. Bobby Mitchell is the County Commissioner in Precinct 3, Lewisville. Commissioner Mitchell offered this prayer at Congressman Michael Burgess’ Campaign Kick Off recently. With her permission, I am sharing the prayer with you. Her deliverance is so powerful, but, so are her words. If you ever get to hear Commissioner Mitchell pray, you will be blessed.
