The National Leadership Prayer Breakfast Committee is now‎ making arrangements for a new guest speaker for the 37th National Leadership Prayer Breakfast after the withdrawal of the Moravian bishop who was scheduled to give the keynote address.

Bishop Stanley Clarke, one of two bishops in the Moravian church reportedly communicated his decision today that he will no longer speak.

It's understood that there had been concern among members of the National Leadership Prayer Breakfast Committee about keeping the Moravian bishop as guest speaker given the sex scandal now rocking his denomination.

This afternoon, we were not able to contact the chairman of the National Leadership‎ Prayer Breakfast Committee.

However, this morning no announcement was made about the speaker.
