Church Announcement: Prayer Bowl 2017!

Reader, “to be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing." - Martin Luther King Jr .

Eight powerful preachers will headline the 2017 Prayer Bowl set for Jan. 2, at Mount Moriah Baptist Church, 4269 S. Figueroa St., in Los Angeles. Pastor Melvin V. Wade, Sr., has hosted the annual event, which began more than 60 years ago under Mount Moriah founder Dr. Earl A. Pleasant, the last 41 years. Joining as co-host is the Rev. Xavier L. Thompson, pastor of Southern St. Paul Church and president of the Baptist Ministers Conference of Los Angeles and Southern California. Sermons will be delivered each hour starting at 9 a.m.

The preachers (in order of appearance) are Bishop Miquail Broadous, pastor of the Grace Temple Baptist Church in Los Angeles; the Rev. Ticey Brown, pastor of Mount Tabor Baptist Church in Los Angeles; the Rev. Wayne Chaney, Jr., pastor of Antioch Church of Long Beach; Pastor Wade, the Rev. Michael J. T. Fisher, pastor of Greater Zion Church Family in Compton; the Rev. H.B. Charles, pastor of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL; the Rev. Dr. Jamal H. Bryant of Empowerment Temple AME Church in Baltimore, MD; and Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr., of Changing A Generation Full Gospel Baptist Church on Atlanta, GA.

Outlining why people should start the New Year with prayer, Wade said, “The Bible says ‘seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,’ so I would think we as a people would want to attend because of the fact that God ought to be first anyway, God always has a rich word for His people and there is a need for the church to be in prayer for our community.” Aiming for additional spiritual support, Wade added, “We’re looking for everybody to be in prayer about this service that God will really get the glory. What God does, He always does for two reasons – one, His glory and two, our good.”

  1. Why are they publicly advertising such a private matter as 'prayer"? Is there a cover charge to attend this prayer service? Or are there hidden charges where they will sneak to ask for an offering once you get there? shhh...don't tell nobody. I wouldn't a teen this event if it was in my back yard!

  2. Miss Ann,

    "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

    But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

    But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

    Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

    After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

    Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

    Give us this day our daily bread.

    And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen." Matthew 6:5-13

    The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...
