Due to an overwhelming response, tickets for the 2010 Missouri Governor's Prayer Breakfast have sold out. The breakfast, scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 7, 2010, at the Capitol Plaza Hotel and Convention Center in Jefferson City, is an annual inter-faith event for all leaders and citizens of Missouri.
Keynote speaker for the breakfast will be St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright. In addition to the keynote speaker, the event also will feature prayers, Scripture verses and special music.
The Missouri Governor's Prayer Breakfast, established in the 1950s, is an annual observance welcoming participants from around Missouri at the beginning of the General Assembly's legislative session. It was established as an extension of the National Prayer Breakfast, which was first held in 1953.
Proceeds from the Governor's Prayer Breakfast support the Governor's Student Leadership Forum on Faith and Values. The forum brings together select Missouri college students for a three-day study of faith and leadership.
