54th Annual National Prayer Breakfast

Established in 1953, the National Prayer Breakfast is an annual event organized by The Fellowship Foundation. This year's event was held yesterday at the Hilton Washington Hotel with around 3,000 attendees, including U.S. government officials as well as dignitaries from several nations.

Aside from President Bush, this year's speakers included King Abdullah II of Jordan and Bono from U2. Bono's words are worth a read [click here]. Credit goes to Sojomail for alerting me to this. And the "Jim" referenced in Bono's speech is Jim Wallis, author of God's Politics and Editor-in-Chief of Sojourners.
