There are four prayer breakfasts in FL this school year: Osceola County, St. Johns County, Hernando County and Seminole County. Osceola and St. Johns had their prayer breakfasts simultaneously on August 24th. Hernando's is on September 7th and Seminole's is on September 28th. What a beautiful opportunity to open the school year with prayer - our most important tool.
The Osceola 17th annual prayer breakfast was blessed with worship music by Brian Delgado and accompanied by Xzavier Coles. Brian is a former Honor the Grads recipient who is studying to be in full-time music ministry. They blessed us with a sweet time to worship and praise before we began prayer time.
Our meal was prepared by Koffee Kup and the food was abundant. There were enough for seconds, take-home dishes and enough to give away to a local nursing home. Our educators came from Osceola, Orange and even Indian River Counties. Dr. David Piccolo, former principal at Liberty High School, area superintendent for Brevard County and current associate professor for Palm Beach Atlantic University delivered an inspiring message of confidence and confirmation for our educators based on John 3: 1-8.

The most important part of the breakfast was the sweet prayers of the participants. Prayer Triplets is a method of prayer designed by Evelyn Christenson in the 1960's. We are reviving it, with permission, for educators. This beautiful form of prayer is for 3 Christians to bring one request each to the circle. The first request is said, the second prayer partner prays for that request, the third person prays for that same request and then the person who requested also prays for that petition. That continues around the circle until all three requests have been prayed for. The prayer time was a sweet fragrance of love in need appealing to love in Power.

Matthew 18:20 - For where two or three are gathered in My name, there I am among them.
As always, I am prayerfully yours,
