The National Prayer Breakfast will be held virtually in 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The first Thursday in February is dedicated to this historical occasion, dating back to the days of President Eisenhower in 1953.
Yet the 3,500 estimated attendees do more than share a meal together. The invitation-only event, which The Fellowship hosts, is designed to promote unity among U.S government leaders, national leaders from around the world and religious leaders as well as share the principles of Jesus’ teachings.
The current president has spoken at each breakfast, which often features the first major post-inauguration speeches from newly elected presidents.
Christian reporter Julia Roys stressed the importance of this momentous event, saying, “If ever our country needed prayer, it’s now!”
The Natl Prayer Breakfast will be a virtual event in 2021 due to COVID. This annual event has drawn thousands of attendees from around the world for 7 decades & I’m hoping that going online doesn’t diminish it. If ever our country needed prayer, it’s now! https://t.co/DLXMOON1b1
