CHICAGO: The annual Chicago Leadership Prayer Breakfast sponsored by Chicago Sunday Evening Club held at the Grand Ball Room of Chicago Hilton on Michigan Avenue on December 4 opened with a Sikh prayer of Thanksgiving.

This was the first time in its 51 years of history that the event included a Sikh prayer. The ninety minutes long breakfast event was attended by Governor State of Illinois Bruce Rauner, First lady Diana Rauner, President Cook County Board Toni Preckwinkle and more than 600 Chicago leaders from business corporations, religious, interfaith, civic, and non-profit service organizations.

The Sikh prayer was for Thanksgiving, Peace, and Harmony. Rajinder Singh Mago, a front ranking community activist, prayed to the One Universal God for the well being of all humanity. The Master of Ceremonies at the Prayer Breakfast was David Casper, President and CEO of BMO Harris Bank.
