July 4th: Seeking God for Liberty in times of Masks and Division

July 4th: Seeking God for Liberty in times of Masks and Division

Every summer, July 4th, Independence Day, is centered between June 19th, Juneteenth, and August 28th, I HAVE A DREAM DAY. This summer is no different; yet everything is different. Each of these days was once a much anticipated holiday; a monthly celebration denoting a cry for freedom and liberty. Meanwhile this year, as we approach Independence Day, the festivities along with the quest for a “perfect union” will be marred by face masks and social distancing. Yet, our hearts should…

A Juneteenth Prayer

A Juneteenth Prayer

Happy Juneteenth everyone. My prayer today is that repentance, jubilee and Juneteenth will meet in a glorious trajectory of redemption. Juneteenth marks the day in 1865 when people held as slaves in Texas finally learned that the abhorrent practice had ended two years previously, when President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. The proclamation freed “all persons held as slaves” in the states that had rebelled against the Union, and Texas was one of them. To understand how it took…

Love, Prayer, Forgiveness and Faith Break Chokeholds in America

Love, Prayer, Forgiveness and Faith Break Chokeholds in America

Thanks to President Trump, his newest transformational Executive Order is bringing hope and sanity to our nation. The Safe Policing for Safe Communities Act, which bans law enforcement from using chokeholds, will help deescalate the senseless slaughter and violence ravaging our communities. “Under the executive order I’m signing today, we will prioritize federal grants from the Department of Justice to police departments that seek independent credentialing certifying that they meet high standards … As part of this new credentialing process,…

Evangelist Alveda King with A DIRE WARNING TO AMERICA: Pray to Stop the Looting and the Shooting

Evangelist Alveda King with A DIRE WARNING TO AMERICA: Pray to Stop the Looting and the Shooting

I was very restless in my spirit yesterday. With my goddaughter, Angela Stanton King, “boots on the ground” in Minneapolis, Minnesota, COVID-19 qualms at critical mass, personal family matters and that type of thing, it was hard to pray. However, I did. This morning as I spoke with Angela by phone, the POTUS text about looting and shooting surfaced. With my heart heavily grieved and moved by the cruel murder of George Floyd, who was a man of God, and…

Norma McCorvey: “AKA ROE NO MORE”

“There’s a temptation to reduce her [Norma McCorvey] to something like a trophy or an emblem, but it’s important to know there was someone who was a real person,” Sweeny says. “People on all sides wanted her [Norma] to be the person that suited their aims, and in a lot of ways, she just wanted to be herself.” Nick Sweeny, Director “AKA Jane Roe” The upcoming release of a new movie “AKA JANE ROE” has stirred me to remember my…

Amidst COVID19 and America’s Race Wars, Mothers Still Matter

Amidst COVID19 and America’s Race Wars, Mothers Still Matter

At best, Mothers’ Day is always a poignant occasion; with some honoring elderly parents and remembering deceased mothers. If you’re like me, many can’t even physically attend regular church services with our parents and families due to COVID19. Thank God for digital access to things that matter the most! Recently, with COVID19 looming around the world, and in America with constant threats of more “race wars” abounding, almost everyone, me included, opens with “are you safe?” Inadvertently we find ourselves…

Reopening Georgia

Reopening Georgia

Friends, faith over fear and prayer over panic remain important as we love our neighbors as ourselves in this COVID19 battle. We are winning the fight. God is with us. As we continue the POTUS led successful national efforts to curb COVID19’s impact, we must continue to watch and pray. While as a Georgian, I understand Governor Kemp’s decision on a gradual progression on opening up some of the small businesses, we must use wisdom as we prepare to venture…

POTUS Ear Open To Black and Brown Plight

POTUS Ear Open To Black and Brown Plight

In a recent announcement President Donald John Trump expressed concern and promises hope for America’s Black community. He is praying for and listen to Black and Brown voices. Why are Blacks at high risk from COVID-19? A threefold reason; intentional targeting from the population control community, dependency on human systems rather than God, and lack of knowledge. “But when Moses delivered this message to the Israelites, they didn’t even hear him—they were that beaten down in spirit by the harsh…

Evangelist Alveda King: A “Woke” Word for COVID-19

Evangelist Alveda King: A “Woke” Word for COVID-19

With all too many of the news and daily reports filled with fear and terror regarding COVID-19, I don’t know about you, but I believe that it is time to exercise faith over fear. We must join President Trump; we must pray rather than panic. “We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters], or perish together as fools.” – Prophet Martin Luther King, Jr. As to conspiracy theories? Some of them we can take with a grain of…

COVID-19 Won’t Break Us; God Will Help Us

COVID-19 Won’t Break Us; God Will Help Us

On Palm Sunday 2020 I released A PARABLE OF THE LITTLE TREE. This “clarion call” message about unity using palm trees in allegory seems so appropriate for a Palm Sunday message. We must pray for God to help us. Meanwhile, we in our nation and the world are “up in arms” about COVID-19; there is much mischief afoot. Please, if you agree, pray according to the guidelines in God’s Word. Psalm 91, 2 Chronicles 7:14 and 1 Timothy 2:1-2. “I…
