Seventh-day Adventists were among the many who gathered for fellowship, breakfast and prayer at the Sydney Prayer Breakfast at Darling Harbour on May 31. The Sydney Prayer Breakfast is an annual prayer gathering of Christians from all denominations who work or live in the Sydney CBD. This year over 1700 people were in attendance and others online.
Prayers were offered on behalf of the Indigenous community, marginalised, business community, civic and church leaders, young people and education. Guest speaker Peter Gibbs, who is an influential Indigenous leader, spoke about reconciliation and hope amidst immense challenges.
There were around 30 attendees from Adventist institutions representing the South Pacific Division (SPD), Greater Sydney Conference, Signs of the Times magazine, ADRA, Castle Hill and Wahroonga schools.
“It was inspiring to be among like-minded Christians all praying for our city and the wider world,” said Signs of the Times associate editor Jesse Herford.
