It’s been a long, hot summer. Thank God it’s nearly over. On the Fourth of July of this year, I wrote about "Seeking God for Liberty in Times of Masks and Division." It’s unusual for me to go more than a week or two before opining again. Yet, it’s nearly six weeks from the last post, and I’ve struggled for days about what to say upon this return.
Well friends, I’m back; and on fire again.
There have been many conversations with friends [and yes foes] about the state of affairs in America — and globally. My greatest struggle has been to remain in faith in the face of fear; to hope against hope; and to love in the mist of hate-filled tirades.
My hope is renewed within the deluge of prayer meetings, calls for repentance, revival, transformation and reconciliation; in person, on social media, traditional and nontraditional media; and by phone. I even received an unsolicited book in the mail, "Make America Great Again."
Priests for Life, myself, and others pray daily for life itself; and for a God-fearing presidential administration to continue in our United States.
The opportunities for working with groups of praying Americans who are truly standing for life [from the womb to the tomb]; liberty [for everyone, regardless of ethnicity and all social concerns]; and the pursuit of happiness [and human dignity for every person living and unborn — as one blood/one human race] are boundless.
So, while I haven’t been blogging, I’ve been praying with groups such as Promise Keepers, The Return, National Black Catholics for Life, Concerned Women of America, Prayer Surge Now, United2Pray, "Movie Guide," and so many others; too many to name, but not too many to appreciate. It seems as though the worse things appear to be, the prayers for deliverance are becoming stronger and more frequent.
God’s love will never fail us.
There have been too many shockwaves and losses this year alone; what with COVID19, street wars, economic upheaval, deaths of loved ones, and so much more. Yet, in the midst of all of this, miracles are happening every day.
I miss our friend Herman Cain.
Longtime Civil Rights Champion Rep. John Lewis was celebrated upon departure.
There is an obvious changing of the guard with the deaths of 1960s legends such as Congressman Lewis, Congressman Elijah Cummings, Dr. Joseph Lowery, and Dr. C.T. Vivian. While in their latter years Rep. Lewis, Rep. Cummings and Dr. Lowery became more socially inclusive to embrace abortion on demand and relaxed guidelines for sexualization of minors, it was still very impactful that their deaths all occurred in such a short timespan.
It remains to be seen who will replace their ranks in the days ahead.
Here is a YouTube video which reviews the civil rights movement's losses experienced in 2020.
So many losses, yet hope is still alive
Let’s thank God that President Trump is strong in maintaining his mantra, "We don’t worship government, we worship God."
Along these lines, my goddaughter Angela Stanton King is fearless and dauntless amidst the roaring of the beast. It is so important to remember in the next few days, as we approach the next rounds of elections here in 2020, that we have so much to gain by voting for the sanctity of all human life; one blood/one human race.
Please check out our two new books, "We're Not Colorblind" with Ginger Howard, and "It All Started With an Apple." Also, please check out our new show "Prolife Praise Variety Show." The creative juices are flowing again, with new music in the mix.
Thanks for your prayers. Keep the faith with hope and love. Vote for life.
