Annual Prayer Breakfast

Last Saturday morning (a lovely day); the Men’s Fellowship at my Church hosted a prayer breakfast; the décor was gorgeous; the food look absolutely scrumptious, made me wish I had a bigger mouth; my husband played the sax (song- “Nothing but the love of Jesus”); we prayed for the youth, we prayed for leadership, we prayed for our community; we prayed for our Church and so much more.

We also had a speaker from another church who spoke a message which he entitled “It Pays to Pray.” He used the word “HAT,” as an illustration of his message; pray is your protection and covering; just as a hat covers and protects your head; and the word “HAT’’ also stood for; when you pray; “God hears you; God answers you; and you will have a miraculous testimony.” We also sang beautiful songs like “Blessed Assurance,” “Count Your Blessings” and others. I think the lyrics of the song “Count your Blessings” are so simple yet so true and these words shouldn’t be forgotten when times are tough. Please take in these lyrics with me:

Count Your Blessings

1. When upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
o Refrain:
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
*Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.

[*And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.]

2. Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.

3. When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings—wealth can never buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

4. So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be discouraged, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

What a lovely morning it was.

    I have been asked to do decorations/centerpieces for a men’s prayer breakfast. Can you tell me about the decorations at yours?
