Statement on the passing of Dr. Billy Graham

February 21st, 2018

Atlanta, GA. – “Dr. Billy Graham has departed earth to receive A Warrior’s Reward. Many will note the many contributions of the life and legacy of Dr. Billy Graham today in honor and recognition of this great Christian warrior who has reached millions of lives for Christ during his 99 years on earth.

“As a fledgling freelance journalist in the 20th century, I interviewed Dr. Graham who was in Atlanta to conduct a crusade. As he spoke, he admonished me to “pray without ceasing.” As he spoke, his brilliant blue eyes were glowing with a heavenly brightness. As I naively asked how anyone could pray 24/7; he quietly responded in a reverberating voice: “I’m praying for you right now.” This unforgettable experience changed my life forever.

“The lives of my family have been personally intertwined with those of Dr. Graham and his family throughout our lifetime. My “Uncle ML,” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ministered with Dr. Billy in New York at Madison Square Gardens during the 1950s. Together, in living color, bridging the racial divide, they debunked the colorblind myth; revealing the mystery of Acts 16:26 – One Blood, One Human Race. They are pictured together during their meeting. The photo is printed with permission in my book KING TRUTHS.

MLK with Billy Graham

“My friend Victoria Hearst, founder of Praise Him Ministries and granddaughter of legendary newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst has shared with me her grandfather’s role in bringing Dr. Graham’s ministry to the forefront in the media.

“One prayer warrior, known as Mrs. Edwards, felt a supernatural compulsion to call media mogul Hearst and tell him about Billy Graham. Hearst was so impressed that he ordered his massive press machine to “puff up” the then young Christian evangelist Billy Graham. The rest is now history.

“Today I join America and the world in prayers for the Graham family; not just mourning their loss, as Dr. Graham will be sorely missed; but also celebrating the life of this precious man of God.”

Alveda King: Appointment to Frederick Douglass Commission is “a blessing”

February 9th, 2018

Priests_for_Life_banner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: February 8, 2018

732-757-9087

ATLANTA — Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, said she is grateful and honored to have been named to serve on the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission by President Trump.

“Black History Month is full of surprises this year,” Ms. King said. “President Donald J. Trump has honored one of my heroes, Frederick Douglass, by forming the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission. It’s a blessing to serve America as a new member of the Commission.”

The 16-member Commission was established by an act of Congress and signed into law by President Trump last November.

Douglass was born into slavery in 1818 on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and rose to become one of the nation’s most eloquent and passionate abolitionists. He led the effort to allow black men – including two of his sons — to fight in the Union Army and, through his friendship with President Lincoln, ensured that emancipation of the slaves was a goal of the Civil War. He also served in various capacities under Presidents Rutherford, Hayes, Harrison and Grant.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, noted that the appointment was one of several honors Ms. King has received from President Trump. She was invited to the White House Rose Garden ceremony in May 2016 when the president signed an executive order on religious liberty. Ms. King was with the president a year ago when he toured the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African-American History and Culture. She also was on board Air Force One in January when President Trump established the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, Georgia’s first national historic park.

“The appointment to the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission is an honor for Alveda King and it’s an honor for our Priests for Life family of ministries,” Father Pavone said. “We are very proud that she will be providing input on ways to honor such an important American leader.”

Presidential Appointment, Black History Tour, Ram in Thicket, CBC Fallout signal One Blood Racial Reconciliation

February 8th, 2018

180208 blog image

Starting with a new Presidential Appointment, Black History Month is full of surprises this year.

President Donald J. Trump has honored one of my heroes, Frederick Douglass with the empowering of “The Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission.” It’s a blessing to serve America as a new member of the Commission.

Moving ahead, let’s reflect on the President’s campaign promises to address racism by ensuring us that “when we give everyone a great America; safety, security, a reason to belong, that will serve the issue.” The President also stated early on in his post as Commander in Chief, that: “No matter what color our skin is, we all bleed red.” His insight into the One Blood truth, coupled with his frequent reminders that: “We don’t serve government, we serve God; in God we trust” are encouraging to say the least.

The month started off with the launch of my annual Black History Tour; this time from Titusville, FL – new home of Priests for Life where I’m Director of Civil Rights for The Unborn. It was a blessing to visit local schools and the Titusville campus of Eastern Florida State College.

Meanwhile, the Congressional Black Caucus sat down on the job during President Trump’s inspiring State of the Union Address. The petulant actions of the majority of The CBC are crippling the dreams of America, and must be addressed; expect to hear more from activists for genuine social justice this month.

It was also a blessing to give a “Black History Shout Out” at the 2018 Rose Day Rally in Oklahoma.

It’s also important to note that while we are One Blood/One Race (Acts 17:26), the Black/African American Community still celebrates a month of educating the masses regarding many notable contributions of Blacks in America that are unknown and undocumented in certain historical annals. These efforts are designed to unite us; never to divide us. Herein is a key to unlocking Racial Reconciliation.

There’s been a flurry of discourse regarding the Dodge Ram commercial featuring the voice of MLK with community service as a theme. On a positive note, many are saying that the ad sparked them to find the entire MLK speech and listen to it. That’s millennials for you; ever seeking truth. The line about “a heart to serve” with the ultrasound of the baby’s heartbeat was definitely a kind of Ram in the Bush “aha” moment.

Coming up this month:
White House Black History Event
Launch of King Family Legacy Library at Millennium Gate Museum

Finally, please remember to pray for America, and watch out for KING TRUTHS and the upcoming Roe v Wade movie.

POTUS IS CORRECT: AMERICANS ARE DREAMERS TOO!

January 31st, 2018

180131 blog image

America, let’s be encouraged by the POTUS reminder that it’s “in God we trust.” And it’s time to abandon hate and embrace hope. It’s time to abandon fear and embrace faith.

In his remarkable State of the Union address, President Donald John Trump reminded us that “Americans are dreamers too.”

The POTUS SOTU address is an encouraging and hopeful word for all Americans; and to hopeful people everywhere. President Trump’s dream is the American Dream; remindful of The Dream of my Uncle MLK:

“I have a Dream… [that] we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

What is needful now in the wake of the SOTU address is a tremendous effort on social media and all channels of communication to let America, “we the people,” and the general public hear, see and know about all of the positive acts and deeds President Trump is spearheading; even against the odds.

Some takeaways from the SOTU address:

-Speech a plus for all Americans; great again
-Prison reform
-Job readiness
-Lower unemployment
-Entrepreneurial Opportunities
-Path to citizenship for immigrants to allow Americans safety and job security during process
-Welfare to workfare
-Tax reform benefitting rich and poor
-American people are making America great again
-Energy independence

Who wouldn’t applaud lower taxes, lower unemployment, end of terrorists killing of our children, religious terrorism, and more? Who wouldn’t? Well, some didn’t; still clinging to being fearful and tearful. Please pray for America!

Also the addition of new vocational schools and envision centers will equip our youths to bring forth productive futures. There’s also awakening truths for all Americans for renewed family stability from the womb to the tomb; and the reality of being One Blood/One Human Race to consider. We are no longer color blind, or blind in any way. Jesus gives sight to the blind. We now see the truth and are advancing in living color:

171019 blog image2

Matthew 4:16 “…The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.”

There is another true saying: “If a person doesn’t work, the person doesn’t eat.” I believe that people who are able to work should work and would be blessed to have gainful employment and the opportunity to participate in making America great again.

President Trump says it this way:
“Americans are Dreamers too. If you work hard, believe in yourself and the American dream, you can achieve anything. God bless America.”

Friends, there is light at the end of the tunnel. With faith, hope and love as our guide, America will be great again.

Can Anything Good Come From President Trump? Yes! Happy Paychecks!

January 29th, 2018

Contrary to “fake news”, current tax cuts commandeered by President Donald Trump are resulting in financial blessings and not just for the rich and famous. Calls are coming in across America about how due to POTUS tax cuts, paychecks have increased in every sector and how job rates are rising and unemployment is falling. Human capital is also rising as POTUS sheds light in the tunnels for womb babies.

Pray for the upcoming State of the Union address. President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, their family and indeed everyone on Team Trump – all are making tremendous sacrifices for God and for America. Please pray:

1 Timothy 2:2 [Pray] for rulers, and for everyone who has authority over us. Pray for these people so that we can have a quiet and peaceful life always lived in a godly and reverent way.

Be sure to watch and hear reports from the field; and they are not so few and far between. Of course you’ll have to look for them because fake news sure won’t report them. Here are some good ones:

2. Steve Strang: Faith and the first year of President Trump

3. Bishop Leon Benjamin: Year One: Thank You, Mr. President

6. POTUS green lights Secretary Carson’s HUD ENVISION CENTERS

7. Advances in Ending Abuse against women: Five Actions You Can Take to Protest Fifty Shades Freed

Evangelist Alveda C. King: More Surprises Ahead in the Race (No Pun Intended) of the Century

January 24th, 2018

180124 blog image

As we celebrate many landmark victories at the beginning of the 2018 new year, including the new MLK National Historic Park and other historical revelations, we may also be gearing up for the race of the century; President Trump and Oprah. At any rate for now, let us thank God for the opportunities before us. We can be great again.

We are approaching “Black History Month.” Let’s prepare to maximize opportunities for unity and reconciliation as we acknowledge the biblical and scientific evidence that we are not separate races, but are rather One Blood/One human race. This post from my cousin Isaac Newton Farris, Jr. makes some good points.

And who doesn’t love Oprah? Hollywood’s favorite Diva is once again making a splash with words for the curious about who shall see God. According to Miss Winfrey, everyone will see God; with the caveat that Christianity holds no dibs on the opportunity.

Actually, as is often the case with various viewpoints, there is some truth in the diatribe associated with religious debates. With the exception of atheists, most people believe in a “higher power” that we stand to meet one day. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to have the Great Judge as ABBA Father, my “heavenly father” when I stand before the Judgment Seat. We can only experience such a blessing by receiving Jesus as our Lord and Savior before we take our last breaths.

“Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

The thing is, while God is the ultimate judge, there is a unique and special opportunity through Christianity to have God not only as our final judge. Yet some choose to avoid the nuances that this opportunity offers.

In closing, let me remind you to please remember to check out our Roe v. Wade movie and my new book, KING TRUTHS.

We are in a crosshairs, with much to lose and more to gain. Remember America in prayer, and let’s thank God for President Trump’s fulfillment of many of his campaign promises. Also, continue in faith and love, praying for all of humanity, for the end of government funded abortions, and for positive solutions in our governmental affairs!

Too late for abortion in Texas? Go to New Mexico!

January 17th, 2018

Priests_for_Life_banner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: January 17, 2018

Contact: Leslie Palma
732-757-9087

The 28th undercover recording released by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life demonstrates the dire need for a federal law protecting children in the womb from abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Southwestern Women’s Surgery in Dallas, Texas is another abortion mill performing abortions up to 22 weeks of pregnancy on healthy babies who could live outside the womb if given the chance. In this recording the undercover caller probes the abortion worker by asking what would happen if she had to postpone her abortion beyond the 22-week Texas limit and is told that she would simply cross the state line from Texas to their sister clinic located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Bud and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico and Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life issued the following statement today:

“By crossing the border from one state to another, a woman is able to obtain an elective abortion into the third trimester of pregnancy. Their sister clinic is the notorious Southwestern Women’s Options, which earlier in this investigation scheduled an undercover caller posing as 30 weeks pregnant for a third trimester abortion, simply because ‘life happens’ and having another child would put undue added strain on her marriage.

“As shocking as it is for the American people to learn about the prevalence of late-term abortions, it is equally disturbing that the abortion industry is capitalizing on the lack of a federal mandate to protect pre-born babies in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.

Contact your Senators and urge them to support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act so that every baby over 20 weeks old in the womb is protected throughout this nation.”

Alan Sears will be honored at National Memorial for the Pre-Born

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Alan Sears, founder and former CEO and general counsel of Alliance Defending Freedom, will receive the 2018 National Pro-Life Recognition Award during the National Memorial for the Pre-Born on Friday, Jan. 19 at DAR Constitution Hall.

“Each year, this award is given to someone who has served the pro-life movement in an exemplary way,” said Father Frank Pavone, President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, which bestows the annual honor along with Priests for Life. “Alan’s service to the unborn is unquantifiable.”

At the helm of ADF, Mr. Sears worked to protect women, the unborn and those who stand for life, and led the charge in an ongoing battle to expose and defund Planned Parenthood.

“I am deeply humbled and honored to be selected to receive the National Pro-Life Recognition Award,” Mr. Sears said. “I will be accepting it on behalf of the entire Alliance Defending Freedom team, which has stood with me in the great battles that determine the future of freedom, of life and of family.”

The 24th annual National Memorial for the Pre-Born, the nation’s premiere interdenominational service, will take place from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Friday, with a Catholic Mass beginning at 7:30. The service, held every year on the morning of the March for Life, brings together clergy from dozens of denominations.

Special guests this year will be Jason and David Benham, and Christian recording and YouTube artist Joyce Im Bartholomew. Father Pavone, who is also the national director of Priests for Life, will preach the sermon.

Happy New Year!

January 3rd, 2018

2018 Happy New YearDear Friends,

As we leave 2017 behind, let us do so with thanksgiving for God’s grace for what has passed and what is coming in 2018. As I write this message, let me encourage you with the words of my late grandfather, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr.: “Thank God for what we have left.”

The year 2018 will certainly have its share of pitfalls and pinnacles. How will you navigate the continuing steps of your life’s journey?

Here’s a special invitation for you to “join the movement” for life.

As you may or may not know, with President Donald John Trump keeping many of his Prolife Campaign Promises, there is great hope for saving the lives of our unborn babies and bringing love and healing to their mothers and families. That’s really something to look forward to in 2018.

On the Civil Rights for the Unborn (CRU) front, we are taking the airwaves for life; in 2017 alone there were interviews with national TV shows, with national and local radio stations, print media as well as internet papers; over 130 interviews. Look for more in 2018.

We’re continuing several projects; working to defund Planned Parenthood, and networking with several pro-life leaders and organization to pass pro-life bills in various states, and probably most importantly we’ve been involved with various prayer groups for the support of President Trump and his administration and for advancements in the pro-life movement.

CRU is also supporting two upcoming pro-life movies; ORDER OF RIGHTS and ROE VS WADE. With their onset, we pray that many will be encouraged to fight for the unborn with more vigor than ever before.

My new book, KING TRUTHS, is scheduled to be released on January 16, 2018 on Amazon. You can pre-order today at http://a.co/6mk8gDr.

Then there’s the new music album Tender Moments Alone With God being released this month. You’ve heard the saying that “music is the food of life.” With this album we hope your heart will be blessed for LIFE!

On a personal note, we lost close family members and friends in 2017; and we mourn their passing. Yet we are not without hope. If you have experienced similar losses, or any disappointments in 2017, our prayers for your healing and restoration go out to you.

Again, the new book KING TRUTHS, and my new music project TENDER MOMENTS ALONE WITH GOD are ready. As part of my ministry at Alveda King Ministries, they are being released during the New Year Season with you in mind; we pray that you will be healed, refreshed and enlightened by these messages.

Finally, as we leave the joys and sorrows, the triumphs and challenges of 2017 behind to enter the promises and challenges of 2018, may God bless you and richly sustain you in the days to come!

We pray this song will bless you. The Keys Song!

Evangelist Alveda C. King
