INTERCEDE FOR NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST, THURSDAY, FEB. 8

As national and international leaders gather in Washington, D.C. to pray together, cover them with your prayers for unity, protection, and the Gospel to be brought forth.

“The Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.” (Rom 8:26)

“On February 8, 2018, the annual National Prayer Breakfast will be held at the Washington Hilton in Washington, DC for its 66th year. Every year on the first Thursday in February, worldwide leaders from over 100 countries gather with the U.S. President for the opportunity to form and fortify relationships with prayer as the cornerstone.

Since President Eisenhower in 1952, the National Prayer Breakfast has been a place for the nation’s leaders to discuss faith and its vitality to the strength of the nation. Over the years, the event has expanded to include over 3,000 attendees, primarily of elite business and political affiliation.

The event is hosted by the U.S. Congress and organized the Christian organization, The Fellowship Foundation and comprises of luncheons, dinners, and meetings. Several guest speakers participate in the event, including a prestigious keynote speaker who is undisclosed until the breakfast. Previous speakers include Mother Theresa (1994), Bono (2006), Tony Blair (2009), Dr. Ben Carson (2013), and Barry Black (2017).

How did this begin? Norwegian immigrant and Methodist minister Abraham Vereide was dedicated to addressing the issue of poverty and wanted to gather and pray with local businessmen and politicians before heading to work. In 1942, when Vereide moved to Washington, DC, he initiated these prayer groups with members of Congress, until it grew to include the President and other national and international leaders.” (Source: American Guest House)

  1. Prayer is a very personal way for individuals to communicate with God/Allah/Buddha or whomever touches their heart and spiritual soul.

    Pray that such a powerful gathering of spirit is not diminished by anyone who wishes to politicize matters.

    Should that happen, then pray for positive change in leadership for America – as well as all countries of the world.

    Actually – praying for that should be an everyday matter.

    Go with God.

    1. Allah and Buddha are demons. We do not pray to demons and should not be “okay” with others doing it. We preach the good news at all times and in all seasons. There is no God but Yahweh.

      1. Praise God! Singing,”He is Alpha and Omega. The Beginning and the End. He’s before me. He’s behind me. He’s ever my Friend. Whatever I do. Where ever I go. He is my source and my goal!”

        “The Lord is my strength and my song.”(Exodus 15:2)

  2. PSALM 130
    Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. If You Lord should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with You that You may be feared. I wait for the Lord, my soul waits and in His Word do I hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning–O Israel, hope in the Lord; for with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him is abundant redemption. And He shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
    PSALM 131
    Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty. Neither do I concern myself with great matters, nor with things too profound for me. Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul. Like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me. O Israel, hope in the Lord from this time forth and forever.
    PSALM 133
    Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the Lord commanded the blessing–life forevermore.
