Congressional Black Caucus taps Shirley Caesar, Bishop Charles Blake to headline prayer breakfast

It's time to pray, saints! One of America's largest African-American organizations has reached out to two mighty warriros in Christendom to lead our nation in prayer during a season when we greatly need intercessors.

Share At a time when our nation needs prayer more than ever, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. has reached out to two powerhouses in the Kingdom of God.

EEW Magazine has learned that Presiding Bishop of the Church of God in Christ, Inc. (COGIC), Charles Edward Blake Sr. and legendary GRAMMY® award-winning powerhouse, Pastor Shirley Caesar, have both been tapped to headline its upcoming prayer breakfast.

The dynamic duo will be bringing some Holy Ghost fire to the foundation's Annual Legislative Conference (ALC) Prayer Breakfast, September 23, 2017, from 7:30 a.m.10:00 a.m. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

This year's ALC honorary co-chairs are Congressman Marc Veasey from Texas and Congresswoman Robin Kelly from Illinois. 

"Music is my lifelong service in ministry," said Pastor Caesar, 78, in a statement obtained by EEW Magazine.

"I am excited to be part of the CBCF's Prayer Breakfast and hope that listeners will feel the love, embrace the strength and be inspired to keep rising through the tough times," added the beloved vocalist who has won 11 GRAMMY® Awards, 14 Stellar Awards, 18 Dove Awards, has been inducted into the Gospel Hall of Fame, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"People of all faiths, nationalities, and races are facing unprecedented attempts to take away basic civil and human rights. Our nation needs decisive leadership to overcome some of its most urgent challenges," said A. Shuanise Washington, CBCF president and CEO. "The Prayer Breakfast is a time to unite and refocus our priorities on what is truly important, namely investments in our people. By doing so, we will ultimately prevail over those seeking to divide us."

Promoting love, unity and prayer has long been the focus of the ministry of Bishop Blake, who heads up the 6.5 million-member COGIC Pentecostal-Holiness denomination, and was invited by  President Obama to serve on the White House Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships in 2009. As founder and former CEO of Save Africa's Children, his remarkable work helped to support more than 200,000 children in 400 orphan care programs in more than 23 African nations.

Celebrating faith, freedom and resilience, this year's event will introduce a creative worship experience with liturgical dancers Stacy J. & Unified Praise from Houston, Texas and will also feature a performance by the Great Commission Baptist Church Choir from Ft. Worth, Texas. The CBCF is honored again to have this year's Prayer Breakfast sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company.
