    “Prayer” Dropped from Men’s Prayer Breakfast

    “I don’t do no shoddy breakfast,” said Patterson. “We’ve got eggs, biscuits, bacon, ham, french toast, sausage and of course grits. If there’s one thing I don’t want anyone saying is that they left hungry.”

    When the breakfast first began it was meant to be a time of fellowship and prayer with the breakfast time set to go from 6:00-6:30 and the prayer time from 6:30-7:00. But over the years as Patterson’s menu expanded attendance increased and the breakfast time started running longer and longer.

    It is the highlight of the week for many of the men at Riverwood Bible Church in Memphis. Every Friday morning for the past 10 years at 6AM men from the congregation and friends from the community have gathered together in Riverwood's fellowship hall for the weekly Men's Prayer Breakfast. Behind the stove is 70-year-old Henry "Biscuit" Patterson, who prepares a breakfast feast for the men each week.
