The United States of America began and has been prospered through faith in God; a faith which has produced enlightenments, purpose, hope, mutual trust and cooperation. The breakfast groups were begun in the early '30's by a group of business executives and subsequently included leaders from various spheres of influence. Their purpose was to foster faith based on facts revealed in the Bible, verified in history and substantiated in experience. From that early beginning these groups spread into a national movement and are now in more than thirty-three countries of the world.
Each group and each breakfast is autonomous, being tied together only by a mutual interest in the spiritual needs of the world. In 1941 breakfast groups were inaugurated in the United States Senate and House of Representatives. These groups have steadily grown and provide a fellowship and rapport among the members of Congress.
The Presidential Prayer Breakfast was inaugurated during the Eisenhower administration. This breakfast draws together the members of the Cabinet, Supreme Court, Congress, Diplomatic Corp., the Armed Forces and the men and women from across our nation and the world who seek divine guidance. It is in this spirit we are holding the Orange County Leadership Prayer Breakfast. We truly thank you for uniting with us in prayer for our county.
Praying for the leadership of Orange County.
"I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help…"
—President Franklin D. Roosevelt
"If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land."
