Committee To Elect Pastor Ezra Maize Sets Up Prayer Station

Thursday, June 19, 2014

The Committee to Elect Pastor Ezra Maize County Commissioner for District 7 will be setting up a prayer station every Saturday beginning July 19, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Eastwood Baptist Church, at 4300 Ooltewah-Ringgold Road. Pastor Maize said his goal is to pray for the communities, children, schools and elected officials. 

Prayer will take place every 15 minutes as voters come to cast their vote. Other pastors will join in the time of prayer. 

“Those who have expressed an interest in meeting us at the prayer station may contact us at 999-2109 or visit our website at: www.ezramaize.org," said Mr. Maize.  "We believe that these moments of prayer will greatly impact the lives of our children, families, and the future of District 7.”

Mr. Maize, the Democratic candidate, is running on a platform of unity and no labels, voting for the person, not for the party affiliation.  “For too long in our history, we have been swayed to vote because of tradition -- whether right or wrong, good or bad,” said Mr. Maize.  “I believe we should confront the issues based on the betterment of all people."
