OFFICIAL Save the date Prayer vigil Jan 6th .png

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

2 Chronicles 7:14

The Seymour Institute for Black Church and Policy Studies and others are calling for an interfaith day of prayer and penitence on the first anniversary of the Jan 06 insurrection.

 

Christians and all people of faith face a spiritual imperative to be salt and light in this time of crisis. We must respond with God’s love to the violence that wreaked havoc last January. Many participants in the assault on the Capitol felt betrayed and ignored by political elites and religious leaders. We must resist the temptations of authoritarianism from the right and the left.

 

Join us in front of the US Capitol, Jan 06, 2022 for intercessory prayer for national healing and repentance.

MORE DETAILS TO COME!
