The Anchorage Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast is set for Saturday, Oct. 28, at Changepoint Church.
The breakfast is not sponsored by the government but operates as a non-profit and non-political entity, refraining from any attempts to influence legislation or engage in political activities.
Patterned after the National Prayer Breakfast the Anchorage event supports the Alaska Prayer Conference, the National Day of Prayer, and any other initiatives that brings Anchorage leaders together to seek God’s guidance in governing the city.
Mat-Su Borough Mayor Edna DeVries will be the keynote speaker for the event, which aims to be a “gathering of Christians to corporately pray” for Anchorage.
According to the prayer breakfast website, the core objectives are to pray, educate and encourage.
— Pray for the mayor, those in authority, the entire Anchorage municipality, the state of Alaska, and the nation.
— Educate Christians about their spiritual and civic role in ensuring good governance and peace throughout the entire city. This includes promoting Christian core values and empowering Christians to recognize the significance of their role in community development.
— Encourage Christian benevolence and care for our neighbors in need through active support and participation in local nonprofit and community service organizations.
Tickets to the event are $35 for individuals and $250 for tables of eight. The beneficiary of this year’s prayer breakfast will be Mountain View Food Pantry, which serves Anchorage residents in need.
