“The Holy Convocation is an annual meeting that we have held for 108 years,” said Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake. “It’s an in-gathering of the saints. They come together for biblical instruction, for inspiration, for worship, to share with one another and to support the Church of God in Christ itself.”
For the 40 days prior to the Convocation, which will take place at the America’s Center in St. Louis, MO, our Presiding Bishop asks the saints of the Church of God in Christ to set aside “40 Days of Prayer” in order to petition unto the Lord for “at least 11 minutes per day.” The Prayer initiative, called 11/11/40, includes prayer for our leaders, our nation, and for Christians around the world.
Bishop Blake is also calling the Church to fast on Tuesdays and Fridays during this period. “Fast and commit ourselves to the Lord, and by the time we finish this 40 days of prayer and commitment to the Lord,” said Bishop Blake, “our personal lives are going to be rejuvenated revived, changed and transformed by the power of Almighty God.
“All over the world, we want every member of the Church of God in Christ to be involved in this time of prayer, consecration and miracles, in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
