A grassroots movement of 30 black college students representing Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) spent the summer touring 12 major cities and visiting 65 HBCUs to pray for revival and spiritual awakening in the black community. The tour was also designated as “a cry for God to send forth laborers into the heart of the inner cities of America and to the ends of the earth, to raise up an awakening of a 24/7 prayer and missions movement.”
Some of the cities included Washington, D.C., Atlanta, New Orleans, Miami, Dallas, and Los Angeles. The tour will lead up to the Freedom’s Cry Stadium Prayer in Atlanta on November 2. They are believing God for 15,000 HBCU students and black youth to gather to pray and fast for the black community.
Organizers say, “We will cry out between the porch and the altar, for the spiritual deliverance of African Americans. We will believe God for revival and a massive Great Awakening that will sweep across the youth of this nation!”
At each stop of the tour, the students have prayed for the HBCUs, the ending of abortion, the sanctity of marriage, and a prayer and missions movement in the black community. To follow the completion of the freedom tour, go to myfreedomcry.com.
