Dr. Tony Evans, a Baltimore native, commented on the recent protests in Baltimore and said “we need a plan; not a protest.” I agree but since this is the National Day of Prayer, I thought why not a prayer.
The civil rights movement mobilized the hearts and minds of this nation through prayer and peaceful marches. These peacemakers met in churches to strategize.
They were united across racial, denominational and religious lines like the National Day of Prayer.
If only we Christians could stay focused and be united like this every day of the year. But I am afraid this Sunday will remain the most segregated hour in America.
In Jesus’ last prayer, he asked that we be one as He and the Father are one. Until the church unifies, we will remain powerless and irrelevant in the society in which we live.
