Bishop Blake, also known as 'Mr. Prayer Mountain' was born in St. James, Jamaica and came into this world miraculously after Satan tried to kill him from his mother's womb and several times after birth. By the age of seventeen (17), God came to him in a vision and told him 'Serve me or die in one year'. In that same year of 1973, he gave his heart to the Lord and was instructed to read Jeremiah 1v4-19 as the Lord was preparing to train and send him forth as a prophet to the nations of the world.
Bishop Blake migrated to the United States of America in 1980 and became a member of the Full Gospel Pentecostal Church of God, Bridgeport, CT. He was ordained as a minister in 1983 and attended the Manhattan Bible Institute where he received a diploma in Christian Education, General Bible Studies and Evangelism. For the past four decades we have seen those prophetic words come to pass, including the manifestation, confirmation and demonstration of God's power as he ministers the Word everywhere that he goes.
Known for his crazy faith in God, Bishop Blake has travelled and preached in several countries of the world including the Caribbean (Cayman Islands, Trinidad, St. Martin, Dominica, Barbuda, Bahamas), Germany, Israel, Canada, within Africa and many states across the United States of America. Throughout the ministry, God has used his servant to bring healing, salvation, hope and deliverance to His people. Over the years there has been many great testimonies of people being healed from cancer, blind eyes/deaf ears being opened, the cripple walking again, the dead being brought back to life, curses (ancestral, generational and via witchcraft) being broken and reversed as well as the captive being set free by the casting out of demons. Creative miracles have also been witnessed, as many have received new organs (heart, kidney, liver, lungs), cartilage restored within joints, surgeries performed with no pain post-operation and women giving birth after being unable to conceive.
After many years of evangelizing, in 1987, Bishop Blake heeded God’s call to go into full-time ministry as a pastor, and established Calvary New Testament Church of God Inc., in the attic of his home in Bridgeport, CT. Upon being given the command from the Lord to build Him a deliverance center, with only eighty-four thousand dollars ($84,000) in the bank and a membership of two hundred and thirty (230) members, Bishop stepped out in obedience, and was able to purchase 2.75 acres of land to build the house of the Lord. By faith, he was able to oversee the construction of the worship center, as a general contractor, without any prior knowledge, and within four (4) years, the structure worth two and a half million dollars was built. Located at 1880 Barnum Ave in Bridgeport CT, where for over thirty five (35) years, Bishop Blake and the now late, Reverend Evadny Blake has led as spiritual overseers, feeding God's people the unadulterated Word of God.
By the grace of God, Bishop Blake in his 50th year wrote his first song, Don't Lie on the Preacher, and has written over two hundred and thirty (230) songs, recorded nine (9) albums, seven (7) singles and two (2) group albums. In addition, he has also written and released his first book, Miracles and Healing are for today, and can be heard ministering live online via social media platforms, Facebook and YouTube, every Wednesday and Friday 4 P.M - 7 P.M. and on Saturdays 11 A.M. - 5 P.M.
The effectiveness of the ministry has brought many souls into the kingdom of God, and though the enemy continues to fight, his heart’s desire is to plunder Hell to populate Heaven as a true end-time prophet of God.
