Oklahomans may register for Gov. Kevin Stitt's virtual prayer event set for 8 a.m. Tuesday.

The free event is designed to unite Oklahomans in prayer, said the Rev. Joel Harder, leader of Oklahoma Capitol Culture, the organization that coordinated the effort.

"Even in the midst of COVID and in a virtual format, we will unite in a spirit of unity, and humbly pray for God to bless the leadership of our state at the beginning of a new legislative session," an event e-vite said. "The location may look different this year, but our commitment to uniting Oklahomans in prayer every February remains firm."

The virtual program will include remarks from the governor and first lady Sarah Stitt and Bob Goff, author and speaker. The event also will feature interactive calls to prayer.

Oklahoma Capitol Culture coordinated the Oklahoma Governor's Prayer Breakfast last February at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. In November 2020, while announcing news about the 2021 event, Harder said it would be an in-person prayer breakfast again at the museum and multiple sites across the state. At that time, he said there was a chance that the event would become virtual as a pandemic safety precaution.
