CITYWIDE PRAYER WALK THIS SATURDAY
I received this information from Dr. Bill Lighty, inviting area churches to participate in a prayer gathering this Saturday at 10:00 a.m. at Acacia Park in downtown Colorado Springs. You are invited to participate. Here is the information:
OUR CITY AND NATION NEEDS US TO PRAY TOGETHER!
On Saturday June 6th at 10am in Acacia Park, the faith community is going to come together for a prayer gathering led by the churches and pastors of the city. We will be praying for racial healing, our Colorado Springs Mayor, the CSPD, and the African American community.
We have invited each of these individuals and groups to join us for this time of prayer and healing.
We will be asking God to heal the divisions of our city, state, and country and give us wisdom on a way forward regarding racial issues. We want to lock HEARTS AND ARMS together as leaders, churches, and people of faith in Jesus Christ and ask Him to heal our land and give us wisdom on how to solve the divisions between us.
This is a chance to show solidarity as churches, pastors, and followers of Jesus Christ with our African American community here in Colorado Springs, across our state, and across our nation. We will pray for God’s hand to be upon this time.
This Saturday, Life Network will host its annual Walk for Life, where nearly 2,000 people will walk in their neighborhoods this year to show that they value life -- and the lives of moms, dads and families in our city.
In a year where they can't hold such a large event in person, people are walking on their own in the neighborhoods, city parks, and beyond. One fresh expression of the Walk is being organized by some local churches who desire to not only walk and pray to support life at every stage -- but also for lives like George Floyd and his family.
This is an opportunity for these churches who already support Life Network and were organized to walk this Saturday to also support and welcome other churches, pastors, and believers across our city to pray for racial healing in our city.
Ephesians 2:14 tells us for he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility,
See Jesus came and broke down the dividing wall of racism. We lock arms, we add a name and face to the issue at hand and through relationship we add love and respect to the difficult issues of our day.
We will have pastors and ministry leaders of the African American community leading us in prayer along with The Merge Pastors of our city which represents roughly 100 churches in our city.
We want to encourage all pastors, churches, and followers of Jesus Christ to bring their family, friends, and social network for a time of demonstrating solidarity, unity, and trust that Jesus can heal our land.
Psalm 50:15 says, “call upon me (God) in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”
This is a chance for us to come together and watch God do a miracle in our midst.
The African American community, the CSPD, the Mayor, the Colorado Springs civil officials, and our city need us to come together in love and unity for each other and show that in difficult times we can still be FOR each other as we labor together for a better city and country. The people of our city need to see the faith community unified in this city for life and lives for the glory of Jesus and for their good.
Jeremiah 29:7 tells us to…work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare.
We are expecting God to do GREAT and POWERFUL things through this time of prayer together.
We invite you to join us, invite your churches and communities to join us at 10am as we stand in unity with one another, asking God to change us so we can change what is broken for the glory of Jesus and for the good of our city, state, and nation.
