Golden Buckle of the Cotton Belt

From Clarksdale & Coahoma County A History by Linton Weeks:

Like zippers zigzagging across the country, railroads appeared after the Civil War, sealing up the South, fastening it to the North and the expanding West. And for Clarksdale, the “Golden Buckle of the Cotton Belt,” a railroad was just what the doctor, and the governor, ordered.

Ephesians 6:14
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

Our Father in heaven,
We pray that the Cotton Belt will be known as a belt of truth, that the city of Clarksdale will secure Your truth, and that this truth will extend, like the railroads, to the North and the West. Amen.

Previous prayer: Transportation
