Dear Father of Peace,
We come before your throne thanking you for the invitation to come boldly before you to find grace and peace in our time of need. Father, we need divine peace in our nation. I am reminded that one of your great names is the Prince of Peace and your word says You will keep us in perfect peace when our minds are stayed on you. Unfortunately, the minds of many Americans are not on you, but instead on Making America Great Again, which really means strengthening white supremacy and keeping blacks and other people of color as permanent second class citizens. This all stems from racial hatred based solely on the color of one’s skin and not on an individual’s character. Systems have been put in place for hundreds of years to keep blacks disenfranchised in America. It appears Father, in these recent days, there is a rise in racial tension, blatant disruption, conspiracy among political parties and a lack of leadership centered around the 2020 election of Joe Biden as President of the United States, and Kamala Harris as Vice President, and father, we need the peace that only you can bring to our nation.
Father, when you created black people it was part of your master plan, and you said your creation was good, therefore all mankind white, black, yellow, and brown are made in your image and your image is a divine impartation.
Help black people fulfill their purpose on earth and that being equal to any white man. Help us to rise to unhindered potentials and do not let it come about by any means necessary, but let it come with decency, spiritual convictions, and integrity.
Father, you said, “When the earthquake and it’s people live in turmoil, I am the one who keeps its foundation firm” (Psalms 75:3).
What a blessing knowing that you are the one able to push back the darkness and allow our earthly foundation to be steady and sure. I love you for being a strong God and I find great comfort in knowing you hold all things together.
I am confident that you hear this prayer that I am offering to you today. May your presence be felt by all your creation. Bring a revival of peace among our nation and let your Shekinah glory be poured out. Amen
Prayers & Love,
Michelle Obleton, First Lady of WCC
