“I learned the first rule of repentance: that repentance requires greater intimacy with God than with our sin. How much greater? About the size of a mustard seed. Repentance requires that we draw near to Jesus, no matter what. And sometimes we all have to crawl there on our hands and knees. Repentance is an intimate affair. And for many of us, intimacy with anything is a terrifying prospect.”

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.
