African American Outreach Prayer

Friday, November 16th, 2012

ABBA Father, dear Creator God,

In your Word you command us to pray

For all who serve you in public office,

That we may lead peaceful lives.

We intercede for those in the offices of

President of the United States,

In the Congressional Black Caucus,

And in federal, state, county and local offices.

We ask for a new outpouring of your Spirit,

The Spirit of truth and life,

The Spirit of repentance and conversion,

The Spirit of courage and grace;

Let peace and love abound,

For ourselves and for those holding political offices.

May we be instruments of Your Holy Spirit

And witnesses of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In which alone we find hope for our nation and the world.

We ask this in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

-Written by Father Frank Pavone and Dr. Alveda King

Another African American Pastor Speaks Up for Life!

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Pastor Walter S. Moss has published a booklet, “Why I Am a Black Pro-Life Pastor.” Recommended reading. For copies of this powerful message, contact Pastor Moss at

Pastor Moss joins the growing ranks of African Americans who are speaking out and up for life and marriage and Bible values. African Americans are fighting for LIFE AT ALL COSTS. At Moss is cited as saying: “We need to know what’s going on with our people and we need to be able to help them with whatever they’re going through,” Moss said. “In dealing with the issue of abortion, we need to be ready with information to help women better understand all of their options, including adoption. We need to embrace those who have already had abortions and let them know that we love them and that God loves them. Abortion, like so many issues facing our community, has become political. It’s time we stood up, as pastors, with the support, resources and help that our people need to make a well-informed, moral decision.”

Sunday, October 7th is Pulpit Freedom Sunday. Many pastors accross america are going to speak up to protect and promote the rights of our churches. The future of religious freedom depends on a free pulpit to communicate fundamental, biblical principles to congregations across America. These bold pastors will preach biblical Truth about candidates and elections from their pulpits.

We need to implement a movement where pastors across America will preach moral values to their congregations, not in a condemning way but in a loving Christ-like way. Just as Pulpit Freedom Sunday seeks to protect our religious freedom, this movement would seek to protect our very souls. Many in today’s society are making uninformed moral decisions because those who have received a calling to minister and to inform God’s people are failing in their responsibilities.

We need to pray for our religious leaders that God will guide them and that they will choose to obey God and speak the truth.

Our Circles of Influence

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

2 Corinthians 2:16-18 …So that we may preach the gospel in lands beyond you, without boasting of work already done in another’s area of influence. “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends…

Sometimes people say to me: “Alveda, you are a famous celebrity. Everyone will listen to you.” Well, friends, actually I am more a warrior for Jesus than a celebrity. And yes, God has blessed me to reach a lot of people with a voice of truth for life. Yet, I don’t speak to everyone.

Actually, everyone has influence. We all, each and every one of us has a “circle of influence.” Paul speaks of one another’s areas of influence in 2 Corinthians. Our circle of influence is our immediate family, then our relatives, then our coworkers and church community, and then our social circles, and so forth.

We can all use our influence to win souls to the Kingdom of God and of His Christ, to introduce them to the Holy Spirit. And then, we can share the prolife and pro-family message.

Use your influence with confidence. It is a gift from God!

Married Bishop advocating for abortion of his baby so that he can be promoted? Married Black preacher giving women HIV? What does the Bible say?

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Do these unfortunate and embarrassing accounts (married Bishop & married preacher) give us a clue as to why the Church is majorly silent on abortion and homosexual marriage? Praise God for standard bearers who fear God and not man. How do we break the power of the devil on this thing? Love never fails, and we are not to touch God’s anointed, but even David cried out to God when Saul was persecuting him. I’m wondering if we shouldn’t say or do something like this?

Hold them accountable to the Word of God in love.

The Church – not the Black Church or the White Church, not the Protestant or the Catholic Church (because this stench is rising in many churches) – THE CHURCH is strangely silent while our nation is drowning; choking on the blood of the innocents and dismantling natural marriage one bite at a time. Could it be that the church leaders are embroiled in so many sexual sins, that their voices are stifled by guilt by association?

We recently witnessed a comedic drama at a political convention where people were voting whether to attempt to keep God out of a platform or put God back in the platform. It was such a travesty in that though the majority of voices in the audio voted were yelling no don’t put God back in, the officiating member called the vote a yes, and the word God was returned to the plank. I cautiously say “the word” God because the true and living GOD can’t be bantered around by such shameless antics as we viewed last week.

We know that nobody is perfect, and that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. So, we are not pointing fingers here. What we must ask ourselves is this: are our Church leaders weakened by fear and guilt of not wanting to reveal their personal battles of the flesh? Is this why so many are silent regarding the issues of sexual perversion and abortion and artificial contraceptives?

Is anyone considering that the political plank advancing homosexual marriage is opening the door for many other types of liaisons that may prove harmful to society as a whole?

There is room at the Cross of Jesus for everyone, and Church leaders are not exempt from the devil’s wiles. Neither are Church leaders exempt from the commandments of GOD and definitely Church leaders (and political leaders we might add) need salvation, repentance and God’s love just like we all do.

This is not a Black/White problem. Remember the misfortunes of say Ted Haggard and Eddie Long? The world was kinder to these two men than was the Church. Are we saying that they shouldn’t be called to accountability? No. But love and mercy overcome judgment. If and when people fall and then repent, they should be restored. Until they repent, they should be removed from positions of authority, but they should not be condemned by accusers who have also sinned and fallen short of God’s grace.

We’re not putting these people on blast here. The media has already done that. We are putting everyone on notice: These are perilous times, and we all need a lot of prayer! Even Paul in the Bible, after admonishing the people for overlooking sexual perversion, came back and told the Church to restore the repentant man so that he would know that God loves even a sinner:

1 Corinthians 5: Expel the Immoral Brother!

It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that does not occur even among pagans: A man has his father’s wife. And you are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have been filled with grief and have put out of your fellowship the man who did this? Even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. And I have already passed judgment on the one who did this, just as if I were present. When you are assembled in the name of our Lord Jesus and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present, hand this man over to Satan, so that the sinful nature may be destroyed and his spirit saved on the day of the Lord.

Forgiveness for the Offender

2 Corinthians 2: If anyone has caused grief, he has not so much grieved me as he has grieved all of you to some extent—not to put it too severely. The punishment inflicted on him by the majority is sufficient. Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him. Another reason I wrote you was to see if you would stand the test and be obedient in everything. Anyone you forgive, I also forgive. And what I have forgiven—if there was anything to forgive—I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

What we are after is not eternal damnation, but rather the salvation of those who fall; so we must first rebuke, then once repentance comes, we must forgive, comfort, love and restore. We must rise above the tendency of human nature that holds the accused at arm’s length; to say we forgive but never let the accused forget; to say “I receive you back” but to treat the person like a diseased germ. Self-pious, sanctimonious and inflexible treatment of those who stumble leaves no place for repentance and reconciliation. This is not the ministry of Jesus Christ who had mercy on the woman caught in the act and the woman at the well. The scandal we create by errantly cutting off the offenders from the Church it is no less a scandal created by the penitent sinner in the first place. To errantly remove the offender from all hope of re-entry into the comfort and security of the fellowship of the redeemed community is just as injurious as it is to permit blatant perversion to continue unpunished in the Body of Christ.

All of this would be just too sad if we didn’t have the Name and Blood of Jesus. May God help us all.

Young Black Woman Speaks the Truth Regarding Life Against Great Adversity.

Monday, August 20th, 2012

Galatians 4:16 – “Have I become your enemy because I am telling you the truth.”

A dear friend of mine sent me an email with this message.

“Here is a courageous young women standing for the word of God against abortion at a local community meeting full of opposition. Bravo Charita! Tell the truth and shame the devil. May God give you speed. Send it to your friends. Pray for Charita.”

See video HERE

It takes a lot of courage to do what Charita did. The Black community needs people to “fear not” and to stand up for the word of God expecially in times such as these. Do you have the courage to do the right thing?

“I thank my God every time I remember you.” – Philippians 1:3

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Dear Friends, God blesses me to travel to so many wonderful places in this pro-life vocation to which I am called. The greatest blessing is always to be allowed to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ along with the pro-life updates that I bring to the people. Many of the highlights of these trips can be found on Frontlines on the Priests for Life website. If you haven’t visited the site recently, please do. The entire PFL website is truly a blessing.

I’m sharing the email below and posting it along with a prophetic poem on Frontlines because it is just one beautiful example of the work that God is doing to bring the message of life to the people of the earth. Pastor John Peyton is a humble yet powerful voice for God, and is a good friend. I am blessed and honored to have been able to spend a few hours with him and his congregation and faith community, sharing the love of God, the message of life, and visiting the women in prison.

By the way, Tonya’s baskets are incredible. I’m leaving her email address in the blog, in case you want to contact her.

Hi Dr. King,

I want to thank you once again for allowing God to use you in such a powerful way to minister to His people at our East Coast Christian Women’s Conference and the women behind the walls of Manassas Adult Detention Center. May God continue to keep and bless you, your family and your ministry in Jesus’ name. I pray that you will continue to be blessed and in honor of you I am naming a standard poetry gift basket after you called–A King/Queen.

Per your request, here attached is your poem “Chosen By A King.” I will be sending the gift basket as well. God bless.

Dear Tonya, you are truly God’s woman, a queen for such a time as this. Your artistic gifts of prophetic poetry and godly gift baskets are a welcome blessing to the Body of Christ. Also, when Deborah told us that God told her that He sacrificed a moment in time away from His Precious Son Jesus, so that God could have Deborah live with Him for eternity, I was blown away. God loves each of us so very much! John 3:16 in action! Glory! What an honor is was to minister with you and the Reconciliation Community Church ministry team led by Pastor John Peyton, an anointed man of God! The men and women who attended the conference to receive the pro-life update and the ministry of God’s Word, and the women prisoners we visited honored us with their presence and their attentiveness to the Word of the Lord we were blessed to share. What a time of worship and impartation! I am overjoyed with the memory of the experience. Please greet Pastor John, Deborah, Carol and indeed your entire ministry family and community for me in the Name of Jesus! God bless each and everyone! Alveda

Do Not Worry

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

This weekend let’s take some time to reflect on God’s goodness. Let’s put worldly concerns aside for a moment and concentrate on the fact that all we truly need in this world comes from God.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. – Matthew 6:25-34

Teaching Children Propaganda?

Friday, July 20th, 2012

Chuck Norris is in the news along with Dan Cathy of Chick-fil-A; both charged with promoting propaganda against the homosexual lobby. Both Chuck and Chick-fil-A have been broadly admired over the years; Chuck for his popular Walker, Texas Ranger series and karate and exercise regimen; and Chick-fil-A for family values backed up by sensational chicken menus sold only Monday through Saturday, closed on Sunday so employees can spend time with their families and worship God if they so choose.

Chuck is concerned that President Obama’s homosexual agenda will impact Boy Scouts of America. In a recent article Chuck said of Boy Scouts of America national board member and Ernst & Young CEO James Turley.

“But is Turley working on his own initiative, or has the White House prodded him with perks and favors?” Norris speculates. “Is it a coincidence that Turley came out swinging against the BSA’s century-old policy to ban gays from leadership and that he has such close affiliations with the pro-gay Obama Administration?”

The Girl Scouts of America has already been affected by the culture of death with the influences of the pro-abortion agenda and let’s not forget that the Girl Scouts of America recently ruled that a boy could be a Girl Scout.

As reported in a Baptist Press interview with Dan Cathy, “Some have opposed the company’s support of the traditional family. ”Well, guilty as charged,” said Cathy when asked about the company’s position.

“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.

“We operate as a family business … our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that,” Cathy emphasized.

“We intend to stay the course,” he said. “We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.”

Why is it that when family values are brought to the table, the outcry against truth is so loud? Propaganda is defined as the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person.

The propaganda debate is not limited to the United States as reported by The Journal in Great Britain, “The “shadow” health minister of Great Britain’s Labour Party said of a Christian group that has made over 50 presentations to school children on abortion, “I think it is very wrong and the Government needs to step in because we can’t teach children at an impressionable age this sort of propaganda.” Diane Abbott criticized the organization Lovewise for telling children at mostly faith-based schools about the abortion/breast cancer link, the abortion/depression link, and other abortion consequences, “Sexual health education is supposed to be based on facts. These people are just pedaling bigotry.”

The prophet Isaiah said it best when he said, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” Isaiah 5:20

The Decision That Will Affect Generations To Come

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

As we await the Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare, a few things come to mind.

I was thinking about the various outcomes and the ramifications they will have. Will the Supreme Court strike down the whole law as unconstitutional leaving our healthcare system in dire need of some type of reform. Will they strike down only parts of the bill, and if so, what parts will they strike down. Will abortion funding still be a part of the bill that stands. And what if they decide that the law is constitutional as it stands, trampling on our religious liberties and our conscious rights.

Whatever the decision is, it will affect every American in one way or another. For me and the ministry that God has called me to, the main part of the bill that concerns me is the funding of abortion, the HHS mandate to provide insurance coverage of reproductive health services to all employees, and any part that infringes on my ability to exercise my conscience and first amendment rights.

I knew we were in trouble when Rep. Pelosi said, “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” To this day we are still finding out “what is in it” and most of it is not good.

LifeNews had an article that explained some of the provisions in the bill that, if not struck down completely, would still be of concern to pro-lifers and would continue funneling money to the abortion industry, taxpayer money and your own personal money through insurance regulations.

In another article written by Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director, Students for Life of America, talks of the pro-life generation and as Kristan writes, “.. Students for Life is here [Supreme Court steps], ready to go to make sure, that regardless of the outcome, our voice is heard. We want to be the first pro-lifers at the Supreme Court when this decision is announced to show the nation that this generation is pro-life, and we are ready for whatever the Supreme Court decides. Students for Life never stops, whether it’s mobilizing at the Supreme Court or starting and training over 720 pro-life groups on college campuses across the country. We’re there, every day at every hour, ensuring that the next generation is truly the pro-life generation.” It’s great to see the youth of our nations to be so energized and ready to stand up for the least among us.

As we wait for the decision, let’s continue to pray for the members of the Supreme Court and for the decision that this bill be struck down as unconstitutional. Let’s pray for the Obama administration, that they will start listening to the people of this country and stop trampling all over our rights. Let’s pray for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Let’s pray for equal protection for all Americans regardless of their developmental stage or size. Let’s pray for those that have had abortions or have participated in an abortion, that they will find healing, forgiveness, and repentance.

Our country has gone down a dark road for so long and our eyes have adjusted to the lack of light in this dark place that we find ourselves in that many can’t see the truth for the lack of light in their lives. In John 8:12 Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” We need to turn back to God and away from the darkness.
