NORTH MIAMI — On a recent night inside the gymnasium at North Miami Senior High School, hundreds flocked in for a Tabernacle of Glory Church for a special service. Meanwhile, on the Facebook page of the Haitian church, known widely as Shekinah, congregants from all corners of the globe flooded the Live comment section with prayers and prayer requests. 

Alfredo Mona of Santo Domingo cried out to God to deliver him from the yoke of illnesses and poverty. Nadege Jean prayed for her three children. Others, like Monarch Celestin, tagged different friends, encouraging them to join the three-hour online service. After all, this wasn’t just any prayer night — it was the beginning of one of the most anticipated programs of Tabernacle of Glory, 12 Nights, a series of end-of-the-year services.
