Tickets are on sale for the 15th Annual Congressional Prayer Breakfast at the Gateway Center in Collinsville.  It will be held on Monday, April 29 at 7:15am.  It is co-hosted by Congressmen John Shimkus, Rodney Davis and Bill Enyart, but organizers say this is an apolitical event.

Gary Tedrick, Chairman of the Breakfast, says if you are a Cardinal fan, you will recognize this year's keynote speaker.

Tedrick comments
