On Jericho

The neighborhood where our church is located has seen a huge increase in gang violence lately. Last weekend, there was a drive-by shooting and a young man died.

This morning, our pastor led us on a silent prayer walk around the neighborhood instead of preaching a sermon. It was quite an experience to watch the church empty out into the street and walk the streets past known gang houses. We walked together, and we prayed. For God's kingdom to come. For peace, and safety. For His mercy.

Lord, have mercy.

  1. I join you in prayer Heather for the peace and mercy of our God to permeate this neighborhood. May the Holy Spirit be free to work all through this area and may souls come to know Jesus as savior for the Glory of God.
    Blessings
