The Rochester Area Prayer Breakfast is held in recognition of the National Day of Prayer, bringing together people of different backgrounds and affiliations for the betterment of the community, the state, and the nation.

The 2019 featured speaker is Rebekah Gregory, a woman and mother whose life was forever changed due to the bombings at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. This act of terrorism claimed her leg, but it could not claim her spirit. Despite the extraordinary trauma she underwent and the nightmares she continues to have, Rebekah sees it as just another part of her personal journey; a journey that has led her through abuse, mistakes, and pain and into the arms of Jesus.

Today, Rebekah is a powerful motivational speaker and author who encourages people all across the world  with her message of faith and hope. Her stirring memoir, “Taking My Life Back: My Story of Faith, Determination, and Surviving the Boston Marathon Bombing” tells the story of her recovery, including her triumphant return to Boston two years later to run part of the race. It explores the peace we experience when we learn to trust God with every part of our lives – the good, the bad, and even the terrifying.
