America mourns today as we observe the wanton violence and police murders which occurred in Baton Rouge, Lousiana Sunday, July 17.

America's Protective Shield is Crumbling.

Just last week we released a press statement decrying the violence against Police Officers in Dallas. Today, we are weeping over Baton Rouge peace officers. Unfortunately, the violence we have experienced last week appears to be spreading to additional cities.

This is not just a race problem -- black versus white. The Hispanic community and immigrants from around the globe living here in America can all identify with last week’s drama and senselessness. This is an American problem that must be addressed with wisdom, discernment and strategic thinking. Again we must call on pastors and leaders to organize a weekly prayer initiative to heal our racial divisions and restore biblical justice to our communities.

Now is the time for all Americans to come together and to make an appeal to heaven for mercy and a practical plea to each other for forgiveness, forbearance, and generosity of spirit.

It’s a fact that fear and hopelessness move people to commit desperate acts. As pastors and spiritual leaders, our first instinct is to attempt to bring comfort and healing to those around us. But whose wounds are deeper, the people or the peacekeepers? Both need to be healed!

The ancient book of Ecclesiastes gives us direction: “Then I returned and considered all the oppression that is done under the sun: and look! The tears of the oppressed, but they have no comforter-- On the side of their oppressors there is power, but they have no comforter.” Ecclesiastes 4:1 (NKJV)

We desire to see at least 35,000 congregations sign up for weekly prayer and fasting so that a spiritual awakening breaks forth in our nation.

Sign up to be a part of the movement!

The above statement is attributed to Bishop Harry Jackson, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Evangelist James Robison, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, Dr. A.R. Bernard, Pastor Jentezen Franklin, Pastor Miles McPherson of The Reconciled Church.

(NKJV)? Not sure if Catholics read this version.

Will you join Bishop Jackson and encourage your local pastors to join in healing prayer?
