boyd-p20Brother Clint Boyd, Jr., of Gamma Phi Chapter in Nashville, TN, initiated the monthly benevolence program in March 2010. He facilitated the call until his untimely death in September 2014. Bro. Boyd’s vision includes inviting two prayer warriors to lead prayers on each call, and he wrote :

When God first gave me the vision for the prayer call, I saw it as a way to shorten the distance between Brothers by making it like a virtual office. There’s no need to travel. Brothers can call in from anywhere in the world and connect with other Brothers who love the Lord

To date, 125 different prayer warriors have lifted prayers to God on behalf of the Brothers and their loved ones. Prayers have been offered on a variety of subjects including healthy marriages, the wisdom to make right and wise decisions, our nation’s leaders, finances, protection of the undergraduate Brothers, the Fraternity, victims of natural and man-made disasters, peace in the midst of battles, our soldiers in harm’s way, perseverance, thanksgiving, a growing relationship with God, physical, mental and spiritual health, safety for children while on summer break from school, the first 100 years in Omega, the next 100 years in Omega, coverage for all men of Omega, a prayer for our sons, widows and widowers, a prayer for our daughters, new beginnings, reclamation, the homeless, those affected by cancer, for those who suffer in silence, those affected by diabetes, Wise and effective leadership, peace of mind, and our fallen Omega Brothers.
