Stop the Hatred Toward the Police
July 16, 2020
Let us unite together over the next three days in prayer for our police departments. The 13th chapter of Roman's demands us to give respect for our higher powers which are ordained by God to provide safety and protection for the good of our families and communities.
We cannot control the actions of people in the world, but we can begin a movement that will hopefully affect the actions of others. Please join me by encouraging your family members and friends to be in prayer for those who are trying to safeguard our lives.
Let's put aside politics and allow the Holy Spirit to search our hearts to do good towards our neighbors. For we are our brother's keeper. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. You may not be looked upon under our current circumstances as a voice of reasoning, but we must take a stand for truth and righteousness.
When God completed his creation, he said that it was all good. Sin is the stain that darkens the light of God's love as we are witnessing throughout our society. As God's ambassadors for truth and justice, we must keep the wheels of justice turning in the right direction. We can do that by expressing our love and support for those who are trying to provide law and order.
We have expressed our disdain for police brutality, now it's time for us to voice our love and respect for what the institution represents. Will you join me by lifting them up in prayer and speaking good things about our police force?
In His Name,
Pastor Alan Gould, Sr.
