Thank God for Our President’s Prayers: More Hope for Life from Womb to the Tomb

Friday, May 3rd, 2019

“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14 NLT

May history always remember the day the President of The United States humbly acknowledged God our Creator at the annual National Day of Prayer on May 2, 2019. My heart was filled with love for humanity, faith for a gloriously transformed nation, and hope for a better day there in the Rose Garden of the White House on yesterday.

The sincere prayers of our Vice President and our First Lady set the tone for the impactful message delivered by America’s 45th president; Donald J. Trump. As the President spoke, tears filled my eyes, and during the lovely worship song, I heard myself resounding along with many gathered there: HALLELUJAH!

President Trump reaffirmed “In God we Trust” in so many ways. His strengthening of America’s religious freedom, his affirmation of the sanctity of life from the womb to the tomb, his compassion for those burdened by the opioid crisis; all of which are powerfully blanketed in prayer by those in support of the POTUS agenda, is so very encouraging.

When Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein called President Trump a healer, the resounding amens from among those gathered were remindful of the need of a great awakening. President Trump recently said he believes in redemption. Indeed, God has placed America on a path to redemption.

The Spirit of the Living God is upon many of us, evident in the POTUS delivery on promises of criminal justice reform, economic assistance for everyone, sanctity of life, compassionate humanitarian intervention and so much more.

Indeed, we are red-blooded Americans, endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. President Trump has rightly noted that we all bleed the same. We must thank God for this insight.

In this light, let’s pray, “against all odds,” for our President, his family, and his valiant administrative team; for their continuing strength and success.

As we remember the ministry of the Prophet MLK, we must come together; as the one blood human race, created in the image of God: we are not colorblind.

Looking ahead to 2020, as we choose abundant life, may we learn to live together as brothers and sisters; so that we do not perish together as fools.

As we are moving forward in prayer, let us continue to pray; to unite in God’s love and mercy. May God bless us to see the day that America is redeemed and whole, amen.

STOP COUNTERPRODUCTIVE CONSUMPTION OF GRATUITOUS VERBAL AND VISUAL DIARRHEA

Friday, June 1st, 2018

Last night I made a huge mistake and broke a cardinal rule of mine. While I should have been sleeping, I read a post about a weird anti-woman diatribe against Ivanka Trump. My mind was still reeling over the Rosanne debacle. The grim reaper of social divisiveness was at work big time.

All of the media attention – television, film, radio and social media – to the emotional tirades and strife filled content (intentional and unintentional) is currently jamming frequencies of healing, reconciliation and unity.

On our radio show Changing Your Community Broadcast, my friend and cohost Emmanuel Boose makes some good points. We should not fan the flames of anarchy. Also, selective judgment is fake justice. If you’re going to clean house, be thorough. Talk about draining the swamp…

Can we PLEASE take a step back from political enmity and emotional tirades; stop taking the stealthy anti-Christ bait of strife and division; and try to love each other, not as color blind but as One Race/One Blood human beings?

Yes. I broke my own rule and ignored my own advice against consuming inflammatory verbal and visual garbage when I should be sleeping or praying:

Philippians 4: 6-7 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

My rule: In the ongoing effort to overcome evil with good, it’s wise to avoid intake of a dietary overabundance of vitriol and divisive media driven cerebral dishes at odd hours. In other words, flooding your senses with negative and inflammatory reports early in the morning or late at night is bad for your overall health.

We are facing sensory diarrhea. Are we becoming so anti-everything that we are disrupting all that is good about humanity? Yes, people are dying prematurely. Yes, people are suffering. Yes, we need help. But devouring each other in strife won’t solve our problems. We need a spiritual antacid.

We need a good dose of reconciliation. It won’t hurt to take a bit of time and smell the roses. Promises are being kept from the White House [which lest we forget was built with free labor by our African ancestors].

Across the nation job rates are up, lower tax rates boost families and the economy, lower regulations stimulate growth, no longer punishing business, babies in the womb are safer, [in]justice overhaul is in progress. Let’s continue to Pray for America.

As MLK 50 Looms, Babes and Millennials Proclaim – We Are Not Color Blind!

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

As we approach the April 4th 50th Anniversary of the earthly departure of my Uncle Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., may we truly seek after the truths he sought to teach us:

“We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters], or perish together as fools.” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Someone texted me a social media clip from a young man recently.

The #s caught my attention with a message I learned at my ancestors’ knees. We are One Blood, One Human Race.

Acts 17:26 “And [God has] made of one blood all nations of [humans] to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation…”

While I’m not into calling people fools, we can acknowledge that there is truth in what young Joel Patrick speaks: “If you don’t see color… you are blind. If you judge only by color… you are a fool.”

In context, we can also agree with President Donald John Trump when he says that we are all red blooded [people]: “It’s time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget, that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood…”

The skin color war is at the root of human dissension and division; causing escalating wars, pain and death. There is a “three headed monster” at the heart of these race wars. Racism, Sexual Perversion and Reproductive Genocide work together to destroy our lives. Resist them in prayer and positively defined action.

Three Headed Monster Revised4

As an important footnote, with looming midterm and 2020 elections, let’s not forget in the lofty towers of government and on society’s highways and byways, that minority votes and presence at the tables count. It will always be a grievous error to overlook and or deliberately exclude participation of a people group because of skin color bias. Minority votes count!

Again, Acts 17:26 says that we are One Blood. In that context, we are the Human Race. Skin Color is a gift from God. We are not color blind; we are not designed or intended for racial division; we are praying to unite in love and in living color.

Together, as The Human Race, with the help of God, we can overcome the darkness. Pray children, pray.
