Prayer Breakfast

A Civic Prayer Breakfast helps the church understand the most pressing needs of their community and host an event in a civic building to pray for community transformation.

Case Study: In the UK we supported local churches in more than 50 local government areas to host events in civic buildings to pray for the wellbeing of the community. We ran a national campaign calling churches across the nation to work together to host Civic Prayer Breakfasts to pray for their towns and cities. The Times newspaper ran a story with the headline ‘Civic leaders start praying to renew towns and cities’.


Process:

  1. Team: Form a team of people who will make the NPB happen including strategic relationship builders, prayer mobilisers, event organisations and public relations.
  2. Plan: Create a roadmap of civic engagement, prayer mobilisation and event planning leading up to the CCPB.
  3. Relationships: Build one to one relationships with strategic civic leaders and find out what keeps them awake at night.
  4. Prayer: Mobilise churches in a rhythm of prayer for the transformation of thedifferent sectors of community.
  5. Event: Host a NPB event in a civic building to pray for the wellbeing and transformation of the community and its leaders.


Once communities host their first NPB it often becomes a part of their annual calendar explaining that it is the most strategic event in their year.
