The  Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "I just want to do God's will. And he's allowed me to go to the mountaintop. And I've looked over, and I've seen the Promised Land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land."

The world seems to have forgotten what Martin Luther King, Jr. knew. We need God's help. Pray for President Trump, America and the World. We must return to God.

Yesterday, in the midst of planning to honor the the dream of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther Iing, Jr. with a new initative, I woke up to the news that Reba McEntire and Lauren Daigle sang "Back to God" at the 2017 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards.

As people of one blood, we must repent, pray, and unite.

The right direction for our times is back to God.

Today, April 4, 2017 marks the 49th Anniversary of the death of my Uncle.

It is fitting therefore to call for the initial "A Time of Love and Reconciliation" which is being read today by talk radio hosts of all political leanings. It's to draw attention to H.R. 194 (of 110th Congress).

A resolution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on July 29, 2008 apologizing "to African Americans on behalf of the people of the U.S., for the wrongs committed against them and their ancestors who suffered under slavery and Jim Crow.

It expresses "its commitment to rectify the lingering consequences of the misdeeds committed against African Americans under slavery and Jim Crow and to stop the occurrence of human rights violations in the future."

This is an appropriate tribute message for Dr. King's 49th anniversary of his life — and legacy.

Were he here with us today, I believe he would agree with Ted Hayes, leader of Heal America Collaborative, with Reba McEntire and Lauren Daigle; and yes, also with me.

He would prayerfully lead people everywhere to return back to God.

In the midst of life’s challenges — racism, war, poverty, human trafficking, abortion, violence, and evil of every kind — in order to escape the abyss — we need help from God to fulfill the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream today.

On Dr. King's anniversary, as we join activist Hayes with the launch of  "A Time of Love and Reconciliation," God’s Word, "Return to Me" is resonating across multiple atmospheres.

It reaches into darkness,  and is awakening a heavenly fire — and light — that cannot and will not be denied.

I’m honored to have my new book from Elijah List added to the cause, "America Return to God." It is proclaiming truth. If the dream of my Uncle, Dr. King, is to be fully received we must go back to God.

The Lord says, "My wayward children, come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts."
