Usually, morning devotionals at the General Assembly are given by visiting ministers.

But last week, a Gwinnett senator served as Chaplain of the Day.

“I am honored to step in as Chaplain of the Day to address this distinguished legislative body,” said Sen. Fran Millar, whose Dunwoody district includes Peachtree Corners. “It’s easy for us to get overwhelmed, but we must remember our many blessings and make it a point to thank God every day.”

On Friday Millar spoke to his fellow senators about the importance of counting everyday as a blessing from God and relying upon His word. His message inspired senators to never give up, lose heart or stop trusting God’s plan, a press release said.

“Today, we were honored to have our own Sen. Fran Millar to inspire each of us with a stirring devotional and prayer,” said Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle. “We are blessed to have laymen like Sen. Millar right here in the Senate, and I thank him for the inspirational message.”

Millar is an active member of Dunwoody United Methodist Church, the release said.
