Black lives matter

Every Tuesday morning at 7AM we gather to pray as a community in Doak Walker Plaza.

This week we're praying for racial reconciliation. Here are this week's prayer points:

1) Pray for God to bring peace to the unrest in our country with respect to racial issues.

May He bring an increase in love, compassion, justice, and righteousness.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
— 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
— Isaiah 9:7

2) Ask God to unify His church.

Believers land on both "sides" of this issue. This is a scheme of the enemy to cause division in the church.

I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. For it has been reported to me by Chloe’s people that there is quarreling among you, my brothers.
— 1 Corinthians 1:10-11

3) Pray the name of Jesus is made great through all of this and that the Gospel would expand!

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
— Matthew 28:18-20
