The Mission of the Marco Island Community Prayer Breakfast is to bring the community together in an acknowledgment of the need of Almighty God's blessing in the affairs of our community and in recognition of His values as the foundation of our nation's history.

 The National Prayer Breakfast has been held in Washington, DC since 1953. In cities throughout the United States this tradition has spread and our first Community Prayer Breakfast was held in 1983. Carol Matthews started the event and Dr. John Thompson was the first speaker.
