Decatur evangelist Phil Waldrep will deliver the opening prayer at the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday.

C-Span will stream the prayer live at 11 a.m. U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, nominated Waldrep to lead the prayer.

A native of Morgan County, Waldrep formed Phil Waldrep Evangelistic Association in 1980 and, four years later, hosted his first conference. In the past 35 years, more than a million people have attended one of the association’s conferences.
