The purpose of the National Prayer Breakfast is to unite  leaders in our capital in order to pray together, build relationships, and seek to walk together in the spirit of Jesus Christ. 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 was founded in 1964 as the first national prayer breakfast in the world. 58 years later, Members of Parliament, Senators, and a group of dedicated political staffers volunteer their time to organize, the breakfast, a leadership dinner, and a multi-day summit for young Christian leaders from across the country.

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.
