Twenty-two of our nation’s leading African-American pastors will come together for a virtual time of  prayer on Wednesday, October 28th for the sole purpose of praying for God’s Will to prevail for the  November 3rd national elections. These men and women are uniting in prayer with the strength of  love, right and righteousness, justice and the sense that the nation is at a moment in time when only  God will do. “Given the incredible and unique circumstances and challenges of 2020 and the  consideration that must be given to the future of our churches, communities, and cultures, we’re  coming together to intercede for all who believe that we are presently heading in the wrong direction,”  said Pastor Harold Carter, Jr. convener of the Prayer Meeting.
