Our Journey

Our-JourneyThe National Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS is the inclusive, expansion of the highly successful Black Church Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS, which concluded its 20th year anniversary in 2009. The Black Church Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS was the nation’s FIRST national mobilization campaign that specifically focused on HIV/AIDS. The campaign has provided AIDS information to well-over 5 million African Americans through the engagement of Black congregations of every sector across the United States.

The Black Church Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS was the expansion of a community-wide initiative in New York City known as The Harlem Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS. The successful engagement of Harlem’s Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and traditional faith communities brought national attention to the critical and urgent need to engage faith communities in addressing HIV/AIDS, especially in the African American community. Pernessa Seele, Founder/CEO of the Balm In Gilead, is the visionary and founder of the Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS.

Let us gather together across our nation to

Pray for the Healing of AIDS.
