Jesus said, "Men ought always to pray and not to faint." In the spirit of Christ, we invite you to join with us in our Unity Prayer Breakfast on Saturday, December 9th. There are many issues that we need to pray about, such as HIV/AIDS in our community, an end to the Iraq war, the leadership of our nation, crime and violence, drug addiction, incarceration of our men, the growth and focus of our churches, glocal missions, as well as personal concerns.

In addition, we need to ask the Lord to give us wisdom as we wrestle with defining ourselves as Black evangelicals as it impacts our dealing with issues that confront us. We believe that God will show us together and in unity the paths to take. Rev. Dr. Walter A. McCray, our national president, will give a prayer meditation.

At the NBEA Summit held in June of this year, the participants engaged in spirited dialogue about what is a Black evangelical and what do they do? This prayer breakfast is one phase of moving beyond dialogue into action.

Summary materials of the Summit are available at your request. For additional information, contact:
