StreetPrayers.org Founder Harvey Pinkney meets with
 Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White

My time spent with Secretary of State Jesse White on Feb 16th, 2011 was one of the most remarkable experiences I have ever been a part of. I found him to be one of the most fascinating and powerful individuals I've ever had the privilege of sitting with and talking to. We discussed the crime rate in Chicago, the drug use and the plight of the black community in Chicago. I got the impression that after hearing about the StreetPrayers.org ministry that Secretary White was happy that yet another organization was concerned about wayward young people in the inner city and that it was a good thing to evangelize the inner city to bring converts to Christ. Still I felt that I had not stated anything that truly stirred Secretary White until the following statement:

I said to him;

"Secretary White we are left with two decisions to make. We all  know how bad the inner city sin problem is. The two choices are; (1) We can do nothing; or (2)  We can erect 1,000 of these prayer booths, go directly into the areas where Satan doing the most destruction to our children and demonstrate the love of God, bind the prince of the power of the air (Satan our enemy) and show the power of the LOVE of God to people - some of which don't even believe that true LOVE exists anymore - that God is a more powerful than anything that the devil is doing". "StreetPrayers.org is being raised up for this very reason. We are the Navy Seals of Street Evangelists".

After that statement Secretary White looked at me with a very serious face and said;

"I am going to give you the name of a gentleman that is very influential amongst the churches. You will need the help of all the churches in the black community. Call this man and by doing so you will be introduced to all of the churches.  Tell him I sent you. We are going to help you, if you need anything give me a call."

At this statement from Secretary Jesse White I was amazed and overjoyed. I felt like the Lord was going to move in a mighty way, in bringing the help of a mighty army. Help needed in the daunting task of binding the enemy and taking back our streets for Jesus!
