"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." II Chronicles 7:14

BALTIMORE, AMERICA'S MURDER CAPITAL?


In 2017, the Baltimore homicide deaths totaled 343 victims. Though Chicago has been spotlighted as a gruesome place of genocide in 2017, Baltimore is among the high homicide rates in U.S. urban cities. Our historic city has become the "deathplace" for thousands of citizens. For this year 2018, crime has claimed these precious lives:

This is a solicitation for the intercessors and prayer warriors all over the city to begin human prayer chains outside of your sanctuaries and in front of your church buildings. This is an interdenominational petition, understanding that unity and the power of prayer transcends denominations. As believers across Baltimore incline God's ear, the expectation is for God, through this prayer movement, to revolutionize this city. We are committed to being intercessors until we see a change in the crime/homicide rate (preferably to zero).

The suggested strategy employed is likened to that of the Israelites in the Old Testament. It is true that God made them victorious over their adversaries and "delivered" the enemies into their hands. They prayed from the Tabernacle but then girded up, went to the battlefield, and made themselves visible to the adversary. Assembling ourselves to pray is what believers have been doing all along, but strategically changing our position from inside the church to the outside and being visible to evildoers in our communities adds an audiovisual impact to our prayer.


We admonish every believer to get involved and here's how:

  1. Speak with the church leaders / pastor about starting a human prayer chain at your local church. This consists of linking arms/holding hands with the congregants and designating one person to lead the prayer.

  2. Decide on a convenient time to have the prayer. For example, prayer participants can convene either a few minutes before or after an already scheduled worship service.

  3. Post a request for participants on your church bulletin board or have it read in your church announcements.

  4. Be consistent with the prayer chain, and make it an integral part of the church's weekly activities.
