Prayers for Arkansas: The People Rule

We will be praying into the symbols on the Arkansas Seal.

The “Bald Eagle” at the bottom of the seal is holding a scroll in its beak inscribed: “Regnant Populus” which means “The People Rule.” In one claw it holds a “Buddle of Arrows” and in the other an “Olive Branch.”
