“The mind controlled by Christ is the measure of the man.”- D. Haye
Life is a journey. The journey of life begins with conception and progressively move towards maturity. The 777 Prayer Conference was conceived in the mind of God and implanted in the heart of his servant on April 2, 2016 at the Grand Concourse Seventh-day Adventist Church, Bronx, NY. The prayer conference was conceptualized by Pastor Desmond C. Haye and Elder Paul Smith, who saw the need for people to meet to pray with the aim of reaching the lost for Christ. The idea was endorsed and supported by the Senior Pastor, Dr. Burnett L. Robinson. In its embryonic stage the name “777 Prayer Conference” was chosen by its leaders. The undergirding principle was that God’s people should pray without ceasing. Since there are seven days in a week, the plan was to encourage members of God’s church to pray 7 days per week at 7 am and 7pm. Thus, began a journey of faith, favor, and the building of a global prayer family.
