As we still face the challenges of an ongoing pandemic, we are ever-mindful of the health and safety of our communities. However, the power found in joining together—even virtually—to celebrate long-standing traditions remains a worthy goal. Join us from the comfort of your home with a cup of coffee or tea and your favorite breakfast; we’ll be together again soon!

A LONG TRADITION OF PRAYER BREAKFASTS
The origin of the National Prayer Breakfast is traced back to prayer groups with business and civic leaders in Seattle, organized by Abraham Vereide in the 1930s. Today, the National Prayer Breakfast is a yearly event held in Washington, D.C., usually on the first Thursday in February. The event—which is actually a series of meetings, luncheons, and dinners—has taken place since 1953. It is attended by some 3,500 guests and hosted by members of the United States Congress. Because of the ongoing pandemic, this year's event was held virtually.
Since the inception of the National Prayer Breakfast, several U.S. states and cities and other countries have established their own annual prayer breakfast events. Wyoming's Governor's Prayer Breakfast has been held for more than 70 years.
Additionally, the National Day of Prayer will be held May 6, 2021. Visit nationaldayofprayer.org for details.
