Introducing the 2016 Seattle / King County Prayer Breakfast.
The Seattle-King County Prayer Breakfast is a historic event which takes place annually. The purpose of this event is to unite as a city, celebrating what God has done in our community and praying alongside our leaders for the current challenges we face. The first Prayer Breakfast was held in the 1930’s as Mayor Arthur Langley and Goodwill Industries founder Abraham Vereide gathered the city’s leaders to pray. This gathering sparked the tradition of the Washington state Governor’s Prayer Breakfast and eventually the first National Prayer Breakfast (or, the “Presidential Prayer Breakfast” as it was then called) in 1953.
Today, the Seattle-King County Prayer Breakfast is governed by a “prayer and planning team” of volunteers who meet year-round to plan the event. These volunteers include marketplace and civic leaders from around the county. The vision of the event remains the same as when it first began: to lift our city and it’s leaders in prayer as we unite to better love our city and county.Back to All Events
