National Prayer Breakfast
The National Prayer Breakfast is a yearly event held in Washington, D.C., usually on the first Thursday in February. The founder of this event was Abraham Vereide. The event—which is actually a series of meetings, luncheons, and dinners—has taken place since 1953 and has been held at least since the 1980s at the Washington Hilton on Connecticut Avenue NW.
The National Prayer Breakfast, held in the Hilton’s International Ballroom, is typically attended by some 3,500 guests, including international invitees from over 100 countries. It is hosted by members of the United States Congress and is organized on their behalf by The Fellowship Foundation, a Christian organization. Initially called the Presidential Prayer Breakfast, the name was changed in 1970 to the National Prayer Breakfast.
It is designed to be a forum for the political, social, and business elite to assemble and build relationships. 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.
Our Lion will be attending.
This is a post for discussion, posting of video links and more…

T3– if only I could figure out WP!! Lucky to copy tweets, and emojis!!! LOL!!
Here’s Marica’s Twitter homepage, folks! GREAT picture!!! (It is a bit complicated – I took a screenshot of it and then hosted it on imgur.com)
Thank you dear wolfie!!!
Good! I’ve watched his statements at these breakfasts, and they’re GREAT!
(BTW, I edited 17 to 7 in the date above.)
Didn’t the MSM give POTUS some kind of grief over the last one? Seem to recall that or something like it.
Funny to get 17 instead of 07!
Thanks for the edit. 🙂
Most men, when they go into the office of the Presidency, are religious men, but become profoundly religious during the course of the Presidency. It reminds me of men who have been in space.
President Trump wears it well.
AMEN! Life brings us closer to God. Life lived strongly does so faster.
LIFE!!! <3 WORLD, TAKE A HINT!!! 😉
Who is the speaker this year?
Remember Ø’s nasty remarks about Christians and Christianity? One year, Ø criticized Christians for the Crusades, campaigns in the Middle Ages, to free Jerusalem from the invading Mohammedans, whose barbarism and treatment of Christians and Jews was the same as ISIS today.
When the Europeans sent a Children’s Crusade, to beg them to allow pilgrimages to the Holy Land, the Mohammedans sold the children into slavery, raped and enslaved the women chaperones and tortured and killed the men. Islam is as Islam does. What Islam does, it has always done. Islam has been the same barbaric, supremacist, misogynist hate cult from the beginning.
Did not know that about the Children’s Crusade!
T*3, thanks for this post and a reminder to pray for our country and the POTUS.
I’ve read that POTUS is not overly religious but I disagree. The image of him and the group of evangelical pastors laying hands on him as POTUS Trump bows is head in prayer just gave me chills.
The President’s speech and the prayer following was great – very encouraging and refreshing!
Yes! These are real gauges of where he is and where he is going.
“I will never let you down.”
And he will never forget those Americans in prison in other countries because of their Christian faith. So great to see his love and appreciation for the pastor recently freed from Turkish prison.
He really has FAITH in GOD and COUNTRY – amazing!
“When we open our hearts to faith, we fill our hearts with love.”
First Step Act!
“America is a nation that believes in redemption.”
“We will always protect out country’s long and proud tradition of faith-based adoption.”
He has come BACK to HUMAN TRAFFICKING!!!
Tying human slavery to the INTERNET!!! Fascinating!!!
And an excellent point.
As always, when he says things like this and just sort of drops them out for us to think about I always wonder what he has in store…
Big cheers for “….born and unborn made in the holy image of God”!!!
Melania missing the breakfast this year because she’s with a group fighting OPIOID abuse. She will be back next year.
Tying the prayer breakfast to the SOTU call for “choosing greatness”!!!
Big finish – his linking of the Prayer Breakfast to the SOTU message and America’s mission going forward was foreshadowed in his earlier metaphor of FDR calling out to God in his address to the nation after the Normandy invasion and D-Day went public. Very nice speech!
He did NOT leave out Muslims.
Very interesting that he “attaboyed” legitimate (my word) Minnesota Muslim charities helping the needy in Somalia. I think this ties in with his defense of religious liberty in general. He is DECONFLATING Muslim charities from Muslim terror money – undoing the conflation that OBAMA worked so hard to do.
Thanks for all the comments that made this thread so good.
(Wish I could have been here for it all.)
