It gives me a great pleasure to present my perspective on ‘National Prayer Breakfast’ for I see it as an event intimately connected to the history of Special Frontier Force. Norwegian Methodist Preacher Abraham Vereide(1886-1969) started a tradition of Prayer Breakfast and since 1953 the event became ‘Presidential Prayer Breakfast’ as it established the custom of inviting the US President as a chief guest speaker for a special gathering held on the first Thursday in the month of February.

Abraham Veredie started the event called Prayer Breakfast in Chicago City and it got transformed into ‘Presidential Prayer Breakfast’ in 1953 when the custom of inviting the US President as a Special Guest Speaker became a tradition.

On Thursday, February 09, 1961, President John F. Kennedy was the Chief Guest Speaker at the Presidential Prayer Breakfast. I am happy to share some photo images of that historical event.

It may be noted that John F. Kennedy was the first Catholic President of the United States, Abraham Veredie was a Methodist, and Reverend Billy Graham, a Southern Baptist. The Prayer Breakfast is not about endorsing a particular religious doctrine.

The National Prayer Breakfast is about cherishing National Values and people gather without any concern about their religious or political affiliations for all of them share the same National Values such as Freedom, Democracy, Peace, Human Rights, and Justice. In the context of Tibet and its Misery under Military Occupation since 1950, we are seeking the Uplifting Power of Compassion to endure the pain and suffering caused by political oppression. We are hopeful with Perseverance endowed by Compassion, We will defy Occupation and defeat its purpose as we begin our “Crusade for Peace through Freedom.”
