Members of the international African Methodist Episcopal Church will participate in the 2011 Connectional Day of Prayer on Wednesday, April 13.
Locally, the effort will be led by Bishop T. Larry Kirkland, Sr., presiding prelate of the Fifth Episcopal District and president of the General Board of the A.M.E. Church. The Fifth District includes congregations in Los Angeles as well as 14 western states.
To mark the special day, thousands of churches will hold activities such as fasting, prayer calls, prayer vigils, prayer walks, and one-day prayer retreats. The goal is to make the Connectional Day of Prayer impactful, powerful and meaningful in the life of African Methodism.
