Mayors Prayer BreakfastFORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Save the date and plan to attend the 53rd Annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast at 7:30 a.m. on March 19 at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center. Presented by the National Christian Foundation, the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast is designed to unite and encourage our community through fellowship and prayer.

This year speaker Nick Vujicic, founder of the international organization Life Without Limbs and his own motivational speaking company Attitude Is Altitude, will present this year’s theme “Become” as he inspires others to be all that God created them to be.

Born in Melbourne, Australia, Vujicic came into the world with neither arms nor legs. During his childhood, Nick dealt not only with the typical challenges of bullying and self-esteem but also struggled with depression and loneliness. He constantly questioned why he was born without arms and legs and wondered what the purpose behind his life was, or if he even had a purpose. According to Nick, the victory over his struggles as well as the strength and passion he now has for life can be credited to his faith in God.

Travelling the world, God uses Nick to inspire and motivate people from all walks of life, touching lives and bringing the hope of Jesus Christ to people across the globe.

Initiated in the early 1960s, the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast grew from a need and a true desire to compel the citizens of Fort Lauderdale to pray for the strength and wisdom of their elected officials. Men and women from the Fort Lauderdale business community, who believe in praying for our government to ask for God’s blessing and guidance, have committed to this enduring tradition for over 50 years.
