About the Event

The Christian Prayer Breakfast Fort Worth Tarrant Country is an annual event that brings together men and women from across our community to hear from an inspiring speaker and pray for our local, state, and national leaders. The Follow On events continue the conversation after the prayer breakfast!

How to Get Involved

Start thinking about who you can invite to the Christian Prayer Breakfast Fort Worth Tarrant County. Who do you know that needs to hear the inspiring message of Christ? Consider the people that God has put in your life, and think about who could join you at a table for this inspiring event.

History of the Event

The idea of a prayer breakfast was brought to Fort Worth by Bill Garrison in 1986. After attending a Dallas prayer breakfast event, he held a gathering of local business leaders to discuss creating a similar event for Fort Worth. The group’s desire was to bring together all types of community leaders to pray for local, state, and national leaders. They also realized the opportunity to provide an inspirational and challenging message from an individual living out their faith in Christ.
