“We are going to worship and pray only because we need God in these times when we do not know what is going to happen. A lot of prayers have gone into this. I can tell you for a fact that a lot of the people who are going to Minister are praying and prepping. They are going to deliver nothing but the best. We re going to let God know that we need him. We also want people to know that we need God as a nation. So we are leading the charge of prayer and not doing things on our own.”
