& Unified Prayer 4- 5:30pm
wALK AND PRAY IN UNITY IN OUR CITY
We will gather in unity on August 12, 2018 to walk and pray...
THIS IS NOT A PROTEST! We will walk in peaceful unified prayer. No signs will be permitted during the Prayer Walk. This will be a multi-ethnic prayer advance. Christian believers of all colors and ethnicity are invited to gather, walk and pray.
WE ARE CALLED TO PRAY. Prayer is partnership with God. We will partner with other believers to agree with God for His peaceful and loving reign on the earth. The fullness of God's glory can be seen when his multi-ethnic people gather in unity.
WE BELIEVE that God is calling us to gather in unity. We believe that God is asking us as His covenant people to reach across lines that divide to pray in unity for our city. We agree to lay aside our divisive preferences to partner with all believers. We will walk and pray to reveal the fullness of God's glory and extend His kingdom in our city.
WE HAVE A CHANCE TO MAKE HISTORY
On August 12th we will:
Be motivated by love (Reveal the love of God to all - unto healing & awakening in our city)
Prefer one another (Remain focused on selfless love of others – as God loves us)
Be unified in vision (Singular in focus and action -to engage in unity)
Reach across lines (Partner with people who are different than us – for His glory)
Proclaim the good news (Loving prayer and ministry of the good news – to make Jesus famous)
Engage in prophetic acts (Engage in strategic acts - to reveal the God of Love)
Provide an alternative for the protest culture (Proactive love rather than reactive aggression)
Partner with like minded groups from other cities (Civil Righteousness groups from other cities are invited to join with us for this event)
