News Alert – President Trump slated to keynote Values Voters Summit. Evangelist Alveda King, Civil Rights for The Unborn is present to pray; boots on the ground.

On this morning of the 12th Annual Values Voters Summit in our nation’s capital, there is a clarion call to Christians who serve at the pleasure of The King of Heaven to wake up and take action to help America turn to God. There is a looming question; should Christians vote? The answer should be obvious. Yes. Our votes in all upcoming elections are vital to this process of redeeming our land.

“Be a good citizen. All governments are under God. Insofar as there is peace and order, it’s God’s order. So live responsibly as a citizen. If you’re irresponsible to the state, then you’re irresponsible with God, and God will hold you responsible.” (Romans 13: MSG)

As the sessions at Values Voters convene, we must take note of the colliding peripherals which are bringing about the necessary tensions which lead to positive transformational conversions; conversions which are noted in such corridors as life, our economy, education and a shift in our morality. As the storms rage, the fire in our bones is being fanned during this season of uprising, as was noted at the recent and powerful RISE UP movement in DC.

As a “Frederick Douglass Republican” I urge all Christians to take action in two ways: Pray for our President and all in authority (1 Timothy 2:2) and always vote according to biblical principles.

Not too long ago, I visited the National African American History Museum in D. C. with President Donald J. Trump. Dr. Ben Carson and other prayerful Americans were there. I also attended when POTUS signed his Religious Freedom Executive Order in the Rose Garden. Now, just a few days ago, I visited the site of the Susan B. Anthony memorial park in Rochester, New York and was reminded of Acts 17:26. Seeing the reenactment of abolitionist Anthony and freedom fighter Douglass in conversation reminded me that regardless of time, skin color and all humanly designed distractions, we are One Blood, one human race; and we should love and protect our mutual justice and freedoms.

About that same time, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 2989, the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act. Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01) an original cosponsor of H.R. 2989, said this regarding its passage: “I commend my colleagues in the House for passing the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act.”

Now, I’m at The Values Voters Summit. The peripherals are colliding. Convergence is eminent.

If you are reading this update, please pray with us, that as we repent and forgive others, God will truly forgive the sins of America; idolatry, racism, abortion, oppression of the least of these, and more. May God forgive us and let the healing begin.

In a markedly different “Women’s March” from the one the day after the 2017 presidential inauguration, women responded to a clarion call from Lou Engle of TheCall.com and gathered on the D.C. Mall to RISE UP and pray in the rain yesterday.

Joined by national men prayer leaders such as Dr. Raleigh Washington of Promise Keepers and Rev. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life who offered apologies for abuse of women and the abortion of millions of babies there were remarkable moments of Repentance, Forgiveness and Healing throughout the day.

Leaders and thousands gathered from all ethnic groups and prayed for ethnic unity based on the themes of one race united from the Acts 17:26 message of one human race, “One Blood,” as the message of Esthers and Deborahs joined by Mordecais with women, mothers and daughters “rising up” and praying for spiritual transformation prevailed throughout the day.

At one intense moment, after Alveda King quoted Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. “We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish together as fools,” Cindy Jacobs of Generals International sobbed on her knees in Apology to Black women prayer leaders; “I’m sorry we didn’t protect your babies.” Alveda King of Civil Rights for the Unborn embraced Jacobs in a prayer of unity and forgiveness.

Fr. Pavone: Tomorrow’s Abortion Vote in the House is a Defining Moment

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TITUSVILLE, FL – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today in anticipation of tomorrow’s vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

“The U.S. House of Representatives debates and votes on numerous measures which vary in their significance. Tomorrow, the House will act on a measure that defines us as a people, and has a significance that cannot be exaggerated.

“The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would preserve the life of a child in the womb because of his or her ability to feel pain. The measure protects children from the violent act of abortion from the point of 20 weeks of development and beyond.

“Speaker Paul Ryan, Congressman Trent Franks, and all our lawmakers who have co-sponsored and who will vote for this legislation are to be commended for their compassion and perseverance in pursuing justice for our unborn brothers and sisters. These pro-life members of Congress face incredible hostility for taking these commonsense steps. They deserve our gratitude and active support.

“As for those lawmakers who cannot bring themselves to give children in the womb protection from painful, violent abortion procedures that tear their bodies apart, such lawmakers do not belong in public office. Public servants are supposed to know the difference between serving the public and killing the public. In the midterm elections, no responsible citizen should vote for a member of Congress who cannot vote for a measure like the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”
