Student leaders from Adventist schools were among the hundreds of attendees at the annual Sydney Prayer Breakfast on May 9.

Hills Adventist College, Mountain View Adventist College and Wahroonga Adventist School were among the schools represented at the breakfast, along with education and church leaders from the Greater Sydney Conference.

The Sydney Prayer Breakfast is an annual prayer gathering of Christians from all denominations. Held at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour, hundreds of Christian believers gathered to pray. This year’s guest speaker was obstetrician and gynaecologist Dr Andrew Browning who has worked extensively in east Africa, particularly with Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia.

Students reflected on the day, explaining how it was such a good opportunity and a great reminder of how powerful prayer is and how important it is.

“It was so good to see all the Adventist schools come together and have the opportunity to pray,” one of the Mountain View students said.

“What a beautiful witness it was for our student representatives to be here with other Christians from all over Sydney, worshipping together and hearing the beautiful testimony of Dr Andrew this morning . . . and to see them so inspired and ready to go out of here inspired for Jesus,” education director Rhonda Belson said.

Greater Sydney Conference general secretary Pastor Cheonneth Strickland said the prayer breakfast was inspiring, being able to unite with other Christians from around Sydney and praying for the city and hearing about the work the keynote speaker was doing. 

“What a great reminder it was at the prayer breakfast today as to the simple prayers that we pray and the fact that God is definitely faithful. To do that with a multitude of other Christians and other people of faith was really fantastic,” said Greater Sydney Conference CFO Nadelle Manners.

Attendees ate and prayed together for the community, the education sector, media and arts, the Australian business sector, the disadvantaged, and for friends and fellow followers of Jesus.
