Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast February 13, 2016
Four decades, the citizens of Los Angeles have come together to pray for our community and her leaders.
LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA ( February 2016) On Saturday, February 13th at 8:00am Union Rescue Mission (URM) will facilitate the 43rd annual Los Angeles Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel located at 404 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles. Union Rescue Mission is once again honored to facilitate this wonderful event where the Los Angeles community and leaders gather for much needed prayer. The emergency crisis of homelessness, terrorist attacks, and El Nino only reminds us how vital this morning of meditation and prayer is not just for our city but for our nation. This year’s keynote speaker is the distinguished Presiding Bishop Charles E Blake of West Angeles Church of God In Christ. Guest speakers include, LA District Attorney Jackie Lacey, LA Chief of Police Charlie Beck, Entertainer Rosey Grier, URM CEO Andy Bales, and of course invited and held in his honor, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
About the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast: Since 1973, when Mayor Tom Bradley asked area pastors to meet with him in prayer for the city, civic and religious leaders have gathered annually to celebrate God’s blessing and seek His guidance and protection for our city and her leaders.
