Racial Reconciliation Praying-Part 2

Updated on September 16, 2015

The picture my friend and I were talking about.

Source

I recently entered the 21st century about 3 months ago when I got my first smartphone. It came in handy one night when I had a conversation over messenger with a friend that I met when I worked for InterVarsity. We were talking about what’s been happening in our lives and about a picture that he posted on facebook. It was picture of a black woman crying with her mouth covered by a white hand. The caption suggested that all lives matter movement is silencing the black lives matter movement. This friend is a black man and it was great to open up to him about what I thought about all of this. And, he did the same thing with me. The best part of all of this is that we didn’t get mad at each other and we are still friends.

Reconciliation is a hard business. I think this picture speaks into that. Blacks want us to realize that their lives matter, that when they are shot by the police it should affect us. Whites are starting to think, what about my life? Or the life of my family. Here is the tension. And if we are going to see healing in this country over this issue, we must enter this issue. We must be honest and listen honestly to others.

Piece of a Sermon on Black Lives Matter

Which Civil Rights Leader do you admire.

And we also need to pray. I hope that you read my other blog on this topic. That has some great suggestions on how to pray and is also a great place to start. But I wanted to keep that blog under a reasonable length, so here is another blog with suggestions on how to pray for reconciliation. Sit back, read the suggestions, and enter your prayer closest.

  • Leadership: We need to pray for our leaders in this country (1 Tim. 2:2): the President, Congress, Governors, as well as our Pastors and church leaders. These people have great influence and they need our prayers. Pray that they make wise decisions and fair and just decisions. If you disagree with an action they are making, pray for them. Pray when you agree. I pray that our leaders in this country will become focused on the issues that are tearing us apart and will lead us to making things right again, not ignore these issues.

  • Ask and Listen: I asked people on Facebook what they thought were things to do to learn how to pray and one suggestion was “ask a black person.” Go and ask. And don’t just limit to one race, but ask people who are Asian, black, white, etc. Everyone has a voice and it is good to get people’s perspective. Then, once you have that, go into your prayer closet and ask God to help you understand. By understanding others, we can be better equipped to pray for them. Not only that, but we can be better at loving others. Try, as best you can, to "walk in their moccasins".

  • White Privilege: This country, like it or not, is set up where whites have an easier time than do anyone of other races. We as whites need to realize this. And I think that we need to pray that others will be able to have the same advantages as we do. I know for me that even though I don’t see it in my life, it is there. I’m not saying that we should bring us whites down, but to pray that others will be brought up. Maybe even use our privilege to help bring others up.

  • Romans 12:2: Pray this verse, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” If we are to be renewed by God, we are to spend time with him asking him to do that. This way, we don’t conform to the patterns of the world, we conform to God’s way. Prayer is the key to this and so many, many other issues. Then we can be agents of change for the good.

  • Your thoughts: YOU have them! I want to hear them! Please share so we can be helping each other to become men and women after God’s own heart. And that we all can be about the ministry of reconciliation.

Source

This is certainly a tough issue, and I believe that I have only scratched the surface. Prayer is so important to this because it is the power of God working. But we also need to go out and DO what we can to help change the world to be a better place. I want you to think about this verse, Galatians 3:28. Look it up. This is the verse about how their is neither Jew nor Greek. That we are all one in Christ. What a picture! This is something to be praying for! Will you join me in praying for this?

I will close with my usual closer: Pray, Pray, and Pray. And do this early and often. This world needs God and he will act. He WILL do His part...let's do ours!

      My sister recently got a discrimination lawsuit. I am not worried because she has black people to help her. She is a manager at a apartment building. She had to not renew the lease of a black lady. The reason why is because other tenants who thank god were black complained about her. The lady and her husband filed a discrimination lawsuit.

      Luckily the building is 70 percent black tenants. So it will be hard for her to have a leg to stand on. If it was 5 percent black than yeah. Most the black tenants are happy.

      The black faced whites that I talk about would be used to help with racial reconciliation.

      If there was a crappy black employee, student or shoplifter I would use blackfaced white people to approach them. Mentor them etc.

      I think it would have helped if George Zimmerman was black when he approached Trayvon Martin. There would be likely no confrontation. If there was atleast there would be no riots and streets full of angry black people screaming black lives matter.

      I think it would have also helped if George Zimmerman had a black male or a black faced white male with him when he approached Tayvon Martin.

      I like the Falcons so I want Carolina to lose. Although if Carolina win super bowl atleast Falcons can say they were the only team to beat Panthers this year.

      Peyton Manning has black teammates to take up for him if he needs an advocate. I am not worried about Peyton.

      I think some people think Cam Newton comes across as cocky. Julio Jones has a personality that 99.9 percent of white people love. I would imagine Cardinals fans hate him now. And broncos fans will hate him if he wins sb.

      Russell Wilson is successful African American QB but he is quiet stays under the radar. Has no problems.

      If I was Cam Newton I would not accuse people of racism even if I suspected it. He has no proof. You create racist attitudes that way.

      I get frustrated because if a black person said they did not like Cam Newton it would be a non issue. But it is not really a big deal.

      Do you remember Falcons coach Mike Smith side line incident with Deangelo Hall? Mike Smith had plenty of black players there to protect him. Black guys are really good for protection if you can get them on your side. That is probably why so many women outside of their race date them. Even with the overall poverty issues.

      I read an article on-line about what Cam Newton said. I think there is some merit to what Cam has to said. If anything, it will help Cam get some people in his corner and away from Peyton Manning. I'm a Patriots fan and I don't want Denver to win after the AFC championship, so I'm cheering for Carolina.

      I'm going to be writing a blog on praying during the season of Lent, which starts this year on Feb 10th, aka Ash Wednesday. I suggest that you take Lent to pray about being that advocate. You can at least be that in your personal situation. Seek God for His plans for you. Of course, read those blogs to help you out.

      Cam Newton an African American quarterback who is getting ready to play in the super bowl has accused fans that don't like him as being racist.

      The first thought that pops in my mind is if a black person said they did not like Cam Newton he could not pull the race card.

      It would be nice if white people had a black advocate in this situation. I hope one day I will be that guy.

      Brian, I don't know how many people read these comments. But this hub has gotten a lot of visitors, most of all my hubs.

      I agree, black skin is very valuable, but so is white skin. If we are to have true racial reconciliation in this country, we need both at the table. This is what I'm praying for. Yes, we should have more blacks in management and I that is a good thing to pray about.

      Big E: Let's pray for a world where it doesn't matter what he color of you skin is for protection. Let's praise God for how he made us and do our part to be voice for reconciliation.

      It is the lower income whites who would benefit mostly from affirmative action.

      My grandpa said when he was in the hospital one time one of the nurses said go to sleep or I will knock you out. He was out of it so he does not know the race of the nurse. He also has had people say get the lead out of you butt in walmart because he walks slower.

      These comments from my Grandpa made me wish he could change his color to black because I think black skin is very good for protection in our society. It is nice to have protection on the road of life. Black skin makes you appear tougher IMO.

      I will just pray that god to give me and my loved ones to give me the protection that black skin would.

      When I drive a car I ask god to give me that extra protection.

      That does not mean I would not feel a little safer if I was a black man in a monster truck but I will always pray.

      Maybe that is why god put ME here. To tell the white man how black skin can help him. Every ounce of me tells me I am doing the right thing.

      Hopefully the right person will hear me and take this to the next level. I have put this all over hubpages.

      Please answer me one question.

      Do you think a lot of people are read through the comments without actually commenting? If so how many? Hundreds? Thousands?

      I meant to say in above comment white hands should never be used to handle black crime IMO after all thats been going on. I think black hands could be used to deal with white crime, black crime or any crime.

      I think it is much easier for a black man to truly be accepted by whites than vise versa.

      Thats just the way it is. Just like pretty girls will have it easier than non attractive ones rich over poor smart over dumb. That is life. But black skin could be the white mans best friend movind forward.

      You ask how do we pray for attitudes to change?

      There needs to be a black voice or an artificial black voice to help.

      The more black faces in management the better. It gives blacks more incentive.

      Try to use black hands or artificial black hands to deal with black crime issues and poor grades in school. This one is important. I do not think white hands should be dealing with white crime at all. White minds yes. But they need to be disguised as black.

      It would help if the media did their part.

      For me I would like to pray that god gives me the resources to go undercover as a black man to make a difference. It will have to happen when I get older as my family does not approve. If I am old and alone that would be the perfect time to go for it.

      I will be more comfortable talking about race publicly if I was black. I would go up to bosses I work for and tell them. Teachers and tell them my idea. I have already told a handful of former bosses and a person that wants a cop. They agree with me mostly.

      I already have a few friends who have commented on here that love my idea. Live in my area and agree with me mostly.

      You have to understand I have spoken to a lot of close black friends over the years about race. I have listened to several youtube videos listening to black people talk about race and black lives matter. I know how many black people think.

      You may not want to hear this but when a white authority figure confronts a black person weather legit or not that is adding fuel to the fire. Examples could be white bill collectors going after black people who are struggling to pay bills. Or even a white judge taking away a black persons drivers license. This can cause black on white crime and anger and resentment to increase.

      Now if a black policeman would have killed Trayvon Martin for example there would be SOME anger but not nearly as much. And it probably would not have made the news. And no racial tension.

      I hope you learn something from me. This is how a lot of black people think. I have interviewed several black people.

      Some people think that god is mad at white people for slavery. The bible says eye for an eye and something about the sins of the father effect son. IF I am not mistaken I think it says that I am not sure. I know I will not be personally held accountable by god for slavery.

      Brian, I understand where you are coming from and I see your point, but how do we pray this for this to change. It is only going to happen with the power of God. Changing skin color is not racial reconciliation, it is getting rid of one of the races. My question is, how do we pray for changes in attitude towards the white man?

      Just google

      1. LEAN ON ME youtube trailer

      2. COACH CARTER youtube trailer

      3. GRAND CANYON youtube trailer

      4. Mike Smith Deangelo Hall sideline incident Falcons and Redskins rumble.

      each video is just 1 or 2 minutes long.

      If you watch these 4 youtube videos you will see why black skin could be the hero. Why the police would benefit from being black. Why some bosses and teachers would benefit from being black.

      There are a lot of troubled black youth in the suburbs as well as rural areas so they need black faces in high places all over. Even if is artifical black man.

      Many black people who hate white people think of the white man as the devil so I don't think a white person is going to be able to help. I think it will take a black person to help even if it meant an artificial black man.

      I have a good example. One of the best places for interacial relation

      is the NFL. The NFL is probably 70 percent black. But it is one of the best places for a white man because all the white players have black teammates to protect them.

      You will also see many black fans with white players jerseys. You will see black people with Peyton Manning Jerseys or Aaron

      Rodgers.

      The republican party needs more blacks in it. They are known as racist. Like it or not society looks at lack of color as racist. But there is a technique when dealing with black people. Never call them out as a race even if you are black it never works. Stephen A Smithfound that out. I am not a republican or democrat btw. I think all the

      presidents don't really help the working man.

      I think it would help if every white family had two black males in it. For protector of the house interacial relations etc.

      Google Mike Smith Deangelo Hall sideline incident on YouTube. You will see what black protection is capable of.

      Google Morgan Freeman lean on me or Samuel Jackson Coach Carter on youtube and you will see what a black authority figure is capable of. Maybe a white man could go undercover as black and do these things.

      You should also try to google Grand Canyon white man breaks down in the hood on YouTube. Danny Glover is the hero.

      If you google these you will see why I agree that a black person real or artificial could be an angel sent from hesven for the white man.

      Hi Brian, thanks for commenting. But changing white men to black men is not racial reconciliation. It s making us to be black. Both have value in the eyes of God. How would you pray for reconciliation?

      It may not be a bad idea. I hear that many whites were assaulted across the country after every white cop vs black incident in recent years. Some even murdered.

      I don't believe in violence against anyone because you could go to jail even if you are defending yourself. It is not fair to put a white law abiding citizen in that situation.

      So I do agree that black skin could truly be a gift from heaven these days for the white man who is just minding his own business. Black skin could be like an angel for the white man.

      I hope god does not get mad at me for saying it like that but it is what it is. I know a black man can get into a car crash or get cancer so he still needs to ask god to watch over him and protect him.

      Many black males get killed in the ghetto but I think a white person would get killed much faster if the live in the ghetto.

      if a white person got killed by anyone he would not have as much people taking up for him like black males do.

      Barrack Obama once said if I ever had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin. Well I say if I ever had a son I would want his skin to be black also. Because I know he would have more protection.

      Let me be clear I am not calling white people out. There are a lot of good things about white people. I just think black skin would make the white man much safer.

      White skin less valuable? All the wealthy white men and beautiful white women can stay white.

      but I recommend that lower income white can use black skin as a tool to get through college cheaper.

      The media always be making the white man look like a fool.

      this is my way of sticking it to the system. By telling the white man how black skin can help him.

      If it was up to me there would be melanin for sale at gnc. Every white man would have that option.

      Black skin would make the white man stronger and more protected.

      I am doing my part by telling you and others whites who will listen.

      I invite you to tell your white friends and family about black skin being a friend to the white man.

      Big E, we need to trust what God is doing when he created us. I really don't believe that changing skin color is going to change it. If anything, it is going to make white skin less valuable.

      Tony, this blog was about praying bring people together. It is not going to be the whites or the blacks solving this problem, but our willingness to submit to God and what he is doing. We need to realize that all voices are important, regardless the skin color.

      Brian, I think praying for more black police officers is a great thing to pray about. Then maybe it wouldn't be a white vs. black issue, but law enforcement reflecting society more.

      Thanks guys for your comments. Let's be praying for reconciliation!

      It is not always about white people having the courage to speak up it is about results. Look at the michael vick dog fighting issue. There were thousands of white people protesting and wasting their breath protesting. It did not do any good. It was just one black man named Tony Dungy world champ coach who sat down with vick and now vick is changed for the better.

      One black voice was more powerful than the tousands of white voices. Black skin would be more valuable to the white community than Tom Brady is to the patriots. Black skin would be more valuable to the white community than Lebron is to Cleveland.

      All white people did was irritate black people by calling out vick. you can not always count on a black person like Dungy so it would help if there were white males who appeared to be black.

      It might not be the cinderella story you are looking for but it would get the job done. You only add gas to the fire when you use white hands to call out black heros like Obama or mike vick. You need a black voice to get the outcome whites desire.

      There is no shame in using a black voice. Obama had whites helping him. Black slaves had whites help them. OJ simpson had white lawyers. But whites can never get a black voice to help them and that is their number 1 weakness. But Jeff Kephart, Robert Downey Jr and John Griffin showed the world it is possible for the white man to change his appearance to black. There is no reason why they can't use black skin as a tool in the tool box.

      I think black skin is better for protection. Makes a man look stronger. More masculine.

      White skin looks beautiful on women. Even most black men prefer white women. I think for males maybe white skin is good for getting into management but black people are more likely to rebel against a white management team.

      It would not be fair to hold back a white boss for being white so I have always felt it would be cool to have white bosses go undercover as black. Some white people complain about the race card. If they appeared to be black they would not have worry about the race card

      and could use oreo bosses to motivate those who need it. Black people respond to color.

      I am not a boss material but I would be mad if I knew that black people would harder for me if I was black. I would go undercover as black and get be victorious.

      Black people need more black role models anyways.

      The sinner in me wants to bring pigmentation into the white community. The good in me wants to also.

      It is based on deceit but when you look at white cops vs trayvon martin, michael brown and freddie grey and the media making it worse the white community needs a BLACK unit to help them. WHITE SKIN IS NOT THE ANSWER! In this fued.

      I think that a white man disguised as a black man is the best option a

      whole bunch of them.

      Black vs white which is better? For a male after being obsessed with race for many years my conclusion is

      If only you could take the average white mans brain and put in the average black mans body.

      white man. Better grades in school. Less likely to get arrested. More peaceful neighborhoods. Better at not losing his temper on average.

      Black man. Physically stronger, faster, better at sports, good for protection, bigger penis on average.

      if only you could combine the two.

      But black skin would protect the white man from the race card and give him much more flexibility on what he can say.

      DL,

      This is how I would do it. I would have 5 percent white male population go undercover as black. There would be the following.

      oreo bosses. White bosses go undercover as black to get more productivity out of black employess. I also think minimum wage should be 12 dollars an hour. People who live on ssi get better benefits and make almost as much money as someone who works.

      Oreo teachers. White teachers go undercover as black to get more out of black students.

      oreo police officers. With all the Ferguson riots and Trayvon Martin drama all the white cops should have the option to go undercover as black. Black skin would be a cops best friend. Real talk.

      oreo lawyers. White lawyers go undercover as black to defend white people in discrimination lawsuits.

      I never did understand the white man vs black man fued. If I was a black man I could help white people much better. White skin is like that pitcher in baseball that needs to be taken off the mound. If you don't take that pitcher off the mound you are helping the other team win. The white man needs to put black skin in the game.

      Movies to watch to prove my idea could work.

      Lean on me. Watch Morgan Freeman do his thing in this movie. Black skin gave him the power.

      coach carter. Watch samuel Jackson in action. Black skin gave him the power.

      Also white women looove the black man! I think white comedians would benefit from being black.

      I think mexicans and rednecks would benefit from being black. They seem to be a laughing stock. Black skin is the best protection a man could have and I would love to bring pigmentation into the white community. I wish I knew how to make a youtube video. I would make one on this subject.

      I think that is true, because there has been a feeling among whites that we don't have a voice. I believe that we whites need to speak up and have a voice in this dialogue. On they other side, blacks need need to allow us to have a voice.

      There is a man named Jeff Kephart you can google name to see his picture who is living as a black man. He says he takes melatonan or something like that. What a great day! The white man most colorful days might still be ahead of him.

      As a god fearing man and someone who has a good relationship with god and begs Jesus to save him frequently I think there are a lot of things that point to me changing my skin color and appearance. My eyes are brown. Just need to cut all my hair. When the time is right I will most likely go for it if it is safe and affordable.

      I am 34. As I get older I think I will need it more and more for protection. Our society keeps getting worse. I always ask god to watch over me also. I ask god to watch over me when I am driving that does not mean I would not feel safer if I was in a monster truck. I think that black skin is protection on the road of life.

      When Mitt Romney ran for president against Obama he needed a black advocate to help him get black votes. It seems like white people are struggling with interacial relations. Having white guys go undercover as black men could help.

      That is true but black skin always gives you the best chance to get from point a to point b without getting robbed or what not. It does not matter if it is a white attacker or black attacker 9 times out of 10 black skin will make you less of a target than white skin would.

      You can also reduce your chances of getting robbed by having a black male with you. The media does not want to teach people this.

      I live in an area that is not necessarily dangerous Fredericksburg VA but it is fast growing and it has its share of robberies. I know that if I was to change my appearance to black I would be much more protected.

      Black skin would be like an extra angel watching over me.

      I think an underdog blue collar white male is the most likely to benefit from changing their appearance to black.

      I think black skin could really be valuable to the white man.

      but the million dollar question is there a safe and affordable way to change your apappearance

      It is interesting you say that because I'm sure some would think it is safer to be white because we don't usually live in dangerous areas.

      The safest thing to be in America is a black male hands down! People do not understand how much protection black skin gives you. I would pay money to be black skinned. I would want my son to be black.
