It's happening this Thursday. Since 1953, the annual multi-faith event has been urging political and religious leaders to meet, pray, and build relationships.

Every president since Dwight D. Eisenhower has headlined the event.

This is the first year that the international foundation known as "The Fellowship" will no longer run the event. Congress is now taking over after concerns over espionage within that secretive group.

This year's breakfast seems to be about getting the event back to its roots, now more focused on a time of prayer between Congress and the president.
