BRANSON, Mo. -- One of the top coaches in college football history comes to the Ozarks.

Bobby Bowden was in Branson Thursday morning, for the Ozarks Mountain Prayer Breakfast.

The former Seminole was the key note speaker. Nearly 1,000 people showed up to hear what he had to say.

The two-time national champion says, even with 377 wins underneath his belt, his faith has always come first.

"It's number one,” Bowden says. “it's got to be number one, that's just the was I was raised, no what else God is first, thank goodness for parents that thought me that, a lot of our young people aren't getting that today. I can give them another example of a life that God has lead, and helped, and what he's done for me."

A Day of Prayer dates back to our earliest leaders. President Lincoln asked for it in a proclamation in 1863. Congress made it a national observance in 1952.
