[AUG. 1, 2005]  The second annual 9-11 Prayer Breakfast in Logan County is scheduled for Sept. 10 from 8 to 9:30 a.m. This inspiring event will once again take place in the Laughlin Center on the campus of Lincoln Christian College in Lincoln. Tickets for the breakfast are $8 and can be purchased by calling (217) 732-3168, ext. 2243. Calls should be made promptly as tickets are already moving fast. Coordinators of this special worship experience are planning for a crowd of 300.

The horrific events that transpired that fateful Sept. 11, 2001, will never be forgotten, and on the anniversary of that monumental date this prayer time serves as an apt memorial. It is also a time to pray for local, state, national and international leaders. Prayers will also be offered up for our military, our first responders, our educational personnel, our farmers, our church leaders, families and our young people. Just as in the previous event, prayers will be offered covering categories like reverence, reflection, repentance, requests and rejoicing. Many local and statewide leaders will surely be in attendance for this critically important prayer time.

A crowd of around 225 people gathered last year at the inaugural event and prayed passionately for our community and our world. The 9-11 Prayer Breakfast is sponsored by Community Builders. Community Builders is a local group, formed in 2003, of Christian leaders representing a wide cross section of countywide churches, ministries, businesses and families. They meet monthly to pray for Lincoln and Logan County and also endeavor to actively participate in making our community "a great place to live."

The group is characterized and guided by four founding principles:

  1. Positive -- not just reactionary to problems, but optimistic, hopeful.
  2. Christian -- motivated by love for Christ and promoting his values.
  3. United -- involving believers from various denominations in common cause.
  4. Active -- not just discussing issues but actively addressing them.

The 9-11 Prayer Breakfast is an outgrowth of those distinguishing characteristics as it reflects both the vision and the mission of the organization. If you would like to participate in Community Builders, you are invited join them on the second Thursday of every month from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at Kingdom Life Ministries, 2500 Woodlawn Road.
