The 23rd annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast featured a diversity of attendees, bringing truth to the theme, “One Voice: United in Prayer.”

“The day of prayer is recognized nationally, but each and every day is a day of prayer for us,” said Mayor Barbara Bass. “Australia leads other countries in prayer for us. It reminds me how much support we have, and how important prayer is.”

This was Mrs. Bass’ last time to lead the event as mayor, and she was recognized at the end of the program by the event’s steering committee, and church and synagogue leaders.

“This is not something she does to check off the list. She truly cares about this event,” said David Stein, a member of the committee.
