The Salvation Army of British Columbia was honoured to attend the '51st Annual Prayer Breakfast' this morning at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

As was said during the breakfast; what a privilege it was to be in attendance with a thousand souls who love this country.
Some history of the event from this mornings programme:

'The British Columbia Leadership Prayer Breakfast serves as a quiet way to reaffirm our faith in God and provides an opportunity to participate in fellowship and reflection.

The practice has its precedent in Ottawa where our leaders have assembled for over fifty years at the National Prayer Breakfast, and serves as a public affirmation of the privileges and responsibilities of a nation under God.
Sponsored by government, non-profit and business leaders, prayer breakfasts are now held in more than fifty countries, each in its own way contributing to a wider spiritual awakening.'
