Historically, the leadership of our nation has turned to God for strength and guidance. It is in this spiritual tradition that we hold the Governor’s Prayer Breakfast. Participants are laypeople representing the leadership of our community.
In a busy and troubled world, attendance at this inspiring prayer breakfast demonstrates our dedication
to God and our faith in His plan and purpose for each one of us.
Over the years, the Presidential Prayer Breakfast in the nation’s capital has proved a continuing influence throughout the world by recognizing publicly the privileges and responsibilities of a nation under God. Because of the impact of the Presidential Breakfasts throughout America, many of our cities are making it possible for the leadership on
the local level to get together to develop the cause of a spiritual awakening throughout our nation.
In keeping with the foregoing ideals, the Christian Courier newspaper, with the cooperation of other interested community leaders, sponsors this Governor’s Prayer Breakfast.
“I find for myself, as I know men and women throughout this great government of ours also find, a sustaining strength from the moments of prayer, whether we assemble together or whether we pray silently alone.”
– Lyndon B. Johnson
“No greater thing could come to our land today than a revival of the spirit of faith – a revival that would sweep through the homes of the nation and stir the hearts of men and women of all faiths to a reassertion of their belief in God and their dedication to His will for themselves and for their world. I doubt if there is any problem – social, political, or economic –
that would not melt away before the fires of such spiritual revival.”
– Franklin Delano Roosevelt
“Almighty God; We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy Holy protection; and Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large. And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.” – George Washington’s Prayer for the United States of America, June 8, 1783
