Special email from Dave Butts, the chairman of America's National Prayer Committee and the Chairman of the Board of the National Day of Prayer Task Force. He is asking national prayer leaders to rally their constituents to pray for cities across America tonight and continuing over the weekend and beyond.
Here is the note he sent on May 30:
Hi friends, I'm asking you to pray tonight. Our cities are on edge. Violence is threatened. Everyone is concerned. The horrific murder of George Floyd was the match that lit the fire but the fire is about much more than this death. Justice must win, but the threatened violence isn't about justice. Something evil has been turned loose and its time for us to pray. I know it's a Saturday night, but please alert your friends and networks to pray for Christ to reign over our cities tonight. Tomorrow is Pentecost! May the Spirit's power be poured out tonight across our land!. Spread the word. It's time to pray!
Many churches and people in Fort Wayne have been praying for the city through the night and continue to do so. You can join Broadway Christian Church today (May 31st). They will be gathering at Noon in the gravel parking lot off of Washington (behind their church next to Mark's Appliance) to sing and to pray for our city and nation.
Please find street parking or a spot in the St. Joseph's hospital lot and walk over.
God cares more about the posture of your heart than the eloquence of your prayers.
