"Most Americans, black and white, would rather not discuss slavery. As with many subjects denial is the
position most prefer. Whites because of guilt and responsibility, but blacks for reasons deep seeded in
some twisted belief that to be enslaved in somehow makes you a lesser being."

"A Time to Heal, A Time to Pray"

PRESS RELEASE


Bible

2 Corinthians 5:18-19 (NIV)

18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ
and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was
reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins
against them. And he has committed to us the message of
reconciliation.

Jesus Saves
Pray for racial healing in America!
Our nation needs healing from the legacy of enslavement.
Lord have mercy! Heal our nation in Jesus name!


Scripture: II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."


Scripture: Isaiah 30:25 & 26

"There will be on every high mountain
And on every high hill
Rivers and streams of waters,
In the day of the great slaughter,
When the towers fall.
Morever the light of the sun will be sevenfold,
As the light of seven days,
In the day that the Lord binds up the bruise of His people
And heals the stroke of their wound."


CONFESSING THE SINS OF OUR NATION & CLAIMING GOD'S HEALING!

Commemorating the date the first slave ship, the White Lion, landed in Virginia at Old Point Comfort,
today's Fort Monroe, from the shores of West Africa. This occurred on the "latter end of August", 1619,
with the arrival of twenty Angolans, America's first middle passage. Our purpose is to seek
God in prayer for reconciliation and healing from the legacy of enslavement around the world.
