Let us go into this new year with the power of God behind us together!
Greetings from the Markham Prayer Breakfast!

2022 has arrived and the year is not off to a good start as COVID variants continue to cause havoc with our daily lives.
The Markham Prayer Breakfast team however are still ‘riding high’ on a great 2021 in person Prayer Breakfast.

It was a great event, albeit somewhat scaled down form our usual gathering size. The meeting was live streamed and over 500 people were able to join in the prayer breakfast either on-line or in-person. You can find the live stream recording of the event on our web site www.markhamprayerbreakfast.com
 
While we cannot tell how the pandemic will work out during this year, we remain confident that we will be holding a full in-person prayer breakfast on
                              “Friday November 25th, 2022″ 
Plans are well underway for a spectacular event to recognize our                      25th Anniversary as The Markham Prayer Breakfast.   Our 25th on the 25th! Please save the date!

Our sole objective is to join all Christians together in Markham to pray for our leaders at all levels of government, commerce, and industry. We ask that you join us not only in November but throughout the year in praying for strong committed leadership.

Please visit our web site regularly at  www.markhamprayerbreakfast.com  as we update news concerning the November event and please take the opportunity to sign up for our regular Newsletters.

Staying Positive In The Midst Of Hardship

Greetings from the Markham Prayer Breakfast Steering Committee.

Surely the end is in sight! The light at the end of the very very long COVID tunnel is growing brighter day by day.

This year’s Markham Prayer Breakfast is scheduled for Friday November 26th 2021 at our usual location-The Markham Hilton Hotel (Warden and Highway #7)

We are looking forward to the event and plans are coming together with a speaker already engaged and participants in our ministry of music fully prepared. The actual ‘breakfast’ part of the Prayer Breakfast remains a work in progress as we navigate through what we anticipate are the finals stages of the pandemic.

For the summer, the committee will be ‘gone fishing’ however we will stay in touch with our newsletter and web site updates.
 
We ask and encourage you to continue your individual prayers for our government and business leaders as they continue to work towards a speedy end to the pandemic.
Please visit our web site for specific breakfast details and upcoming news regarding tickets and booking procedures for this year’s event.
 
Enjoy your summer-fishing or otherwise.
 

Thank you for joining us

2020 WAS THE YEAR WE WENT VIRTUAL!

The Markham Prayer Breakfast 2020 was unique in that attendees enjoyed preparing their own breakfast and participating in the comfort of their own homes. There was no need to venture out into the cold.
 

Don’t worry if you accidentally missed the launch, you can still participate by clicking on this link.

Something New

Greetings from the Markham Prayer Breakfast

For several months we have been talking about the planned Markham Prayer Breakfast scheduled for November 2020 and the fact that due to COVID 19 we probably would not be able to meet in person as is our custom.

The Prayer Breakfast Steering Committee have now confirmed that this year we will not be meeting at The Hilton as usual-however that does not mean that the need for prayer and support for our government and business leaders has in any way diminished-in fact we believe there is a greater need for prayer that in past years.
The Markham Prayer Breakfast 2020 will therefore take place in the form of a prayer centred event, which will be available to everyone through our You Tube channel. More specific details will be issued in our next publication.

We wish to publicize this to the maximum extent as it is something ‘different’ and so we encourage you to ask friends, family and members of your congregation to sign up for our Newsletters-they can do simply and quickly at markhamprayerbreakfast@gmail.com 
Please help us to spread the news

We would also like to advise all of our friends and supporters that have already reserved and paid for tickets for this year’s event that they can obtain a FULL refund from our treasurer Mr. Lloyd Mather by contacting him as lmather@sympatico.ca.  If you wish to carry your payment over to the 2021 event, then we will be pleased to do that-either way please let Lloyd know.
Please continue to be vigilant and pray for our leaders at all levels of Government and Business. These are unusual times that we live in. There is no prior experience to fall back on for direction and so the rules continue to evolve day by day. Let us pray that our leaders will be well equipped to be resourceful, creative, and empathetic as they navigate the COVID pandemic and legislate for us.

Perseverance in Prayer

Greetings from the Markham Prayer Breakfast

In our last newsletter we commented that we were getting a little closer to ‘normality’ and it seems that the trend has continued with further restrictions being eased on the lockdown situation.

It is encouraging to see some of our church affiliates beginning to restart their worship programs in person while others continue a more cautious approach. Whether you are open for business in person or still on a virtual platform we encourage you to continue your prayer regime to support our civic leaders at all levels of government. With the recent easing of restrictions it seems that many people may have mistakenly thought that the pandemic was at an end – this is far from the case and so we must all continue to be vigilant and our prayers for strong decisive leadership are very much a necessity.

Looking back 12 months in our newsletter last year at this time we were excited to be talking about plans for our November 2019 breakfast. While we have not yet finalized the format for the 2020 Markham Prayer Breakfast, we still continue to look at options that will create a meaningful prayer environment in conjunction with maximum safety for all concerned. As the plans come to fruition we will certainly let you know and as we have stated before one thing is certain and that is that there will be a Markham Prayer Breakfast 2020 – it’s only the format that is undecided.

We hope that your summer continues well, we have certainly been blessed with glorious weather and we would take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and healthy summer.
