The National Prayer Breakfast



The purpose of the National Prayer Breakfast is to invite leaders to meet in the spirit of Jesus Christ in order to pray together and build relationships. The National Prayer Breakfast is an annual Christian event and is historically offered under the auspices of the Speaker of the Senate and the Speaker of the House on behalf of the Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast Group.

Its History

The National Prayer Breakfast is a yearly event held under the combined authority of the Speakers of the Senate and the House of Commons and organized by a group of dedicated volunteers and staffers. Traditionally, men and women from differing backgrounds gather together with elected officials to pray in the spirit of Jesus Christ for Canada.

National Prayer Breakfast

The annual National Prayer Breakfast of Canada is a Christ-centred event held by the Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast Group in our nation's capital. The purpose of this event is to come together collectively to honour and continue to hold to our Christian heritage. This allows our elected officials to gather together with men and women from different backgrounds to pray and connect through our shared faith.


We are very pleased to announce that the 57th Annual National Prayer Breakfast of Canada will be held on Tuesday, May 31st, 2022 in Ottawa. The National Leadership Dinner will be held on Monday, May 30th, 2022. Both events will be held in-person at Delta Hotels Ottawa City Centre. This year's events will be centered around The Compassion of Christ (2 Corinthians 1: 3-4). 


During your time in our nation’s capital, I would encourage you to enjoy a walk with family, friends, or colleagues to take in the landmarks of our federal institutions. Consider interceding for our nation and those leaders, staff and all other public servants who are tasked daily with making decisions for our country. For your convenience, please find a map of the parliamentary precinct for use at your leisure here.

Bill was completely alone during his stay at the residential and had lost all contact with family and the Tahltan Nation. At age 15 he was on his own and through circumstances he ended up in a Christian foster home.

Bill Adsit has a Bachelor of Commerce degree (Accounting) from the University of Alberta. In his career with the Federal Government he worked as a Communications Specialist with the Canadian Military, a Flight Service Specialist with Transport Canada, a Business Tax Auditor with Canada Revenue Agency and Aboriginal Business Canada (ABC) as a Business Development Officer and ended his career Regional Quality Assurance Manager. After his time with the Federal Government he was the CEO/President of the Tahltan Nation Development Corporation for ten years. He recently completed his term as a board member for BC Hydro. He currently is employed with Arrow Transport Systems and the Indigenous Advisory Monitoring Committee for the Federal Government on the TMX pipeline.
