ABOUT THE' PRAY 4 PHILLY' INITIATIVE
The city of Philadelphia is in
STATE Of EMERGENCY!!
“Philadelphia is experiencing an ongoing surge in fatal shootings that could set a new record at the end of 2021: the deadliest year in city history when it comes to homicides.
At least 103 people have been murdered so far this year, a 30% increase over the same time last year.”(https://whyy.org/articles/philly-could-set-new-record-for-homicides-officials-say-during-first-gun-violence-briefing/#:~:text=Philadelphia%20is%20experiencing%20an%20ongoing,the%20same%20time%20last%20year)
“The number of guns that are on the street is irrational and crazy,” said Mayor Jim Kenney during the city’s first public briefing on how it’s responding to gun violence. .”(https://whyy.org/articles/philly-could-set-new-record-for-homicides-officials-say-during-first-gun-violence-briefing/#:~:text=Philadelphia%20is%20experiencing%20an%20ongoing,the%20same%20time%20last%20year)
Like many of you, my team and I are deeply saddened, hurt, and perplexed by this devastating situation. The victims and victimizers are getting younger and younger. In response to this crisis, my team and I have started the ‘Pray 4 Philly’ 93 days of prayer.
ENERGY IS REAL & THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS!
Starting June 1st, 2021 we ask all members of all faiths and beliefs to come together and join us at 6 am to PRAY 4 PHILLY. We will do this every day for 93 days. If you do not prefer to pray, join us and Meditate, Visualize, Perform affirmations or communicate your Well wishes, positive thoughts positive intentions. There is power in numbers and we understand that thoughts become things; therefore, there is power in all of these methods.
Understand, that faith & prayer without work is dead; therefore, following the 6 am Prayer/Meditation/Visualization, there will be a call to action that we ask everyone to participate.
It is imperative that Members of all faiths & spiritual persuasions outwardly come together in unification to work towards decreasing gun violence in the city of Philadelphia. Together we will make Philly a safer place to live and raise our families.
We are asking Interfaith leaders, leaders in Meditation/Visualization, and Affirmations to join us in leading the prayers, meditation/visualizations, and Affirmations. There will be different people leading every day, but the message will be intentional:
We will pray for our safety
We will pray for Citywide leadership that God gives them the resources and direction needed to lead the charge on gun violence effectively.
We will pray that those assigned to keep our city safe will find and apprehend the people and organizations providing the guns falling into the hands of our youth.
We will pray for the victims and victimizers, &
WE will pray for healing and overall peace in Philadelphia!
