      I have.  But I keep going back to the Bible because that is where I hear God speaking to me.

      DL: "Stand" on His Word!  You will ALWAYS "hear" Him speaking! 

      God Bless!

    Praying for reconciliation might make some people feel better about the injustice, but the true remedy lies within the ACT of making reconciliation rather than praying or hoping for.

      I agree to a point. I think both are needed.  If reconciliation is going to happen, we will need God to do his part and we need to do our part.  Prayer is about God's part.

      Ruth: God has done "His Part!" Now we have to  do our part by "believing" & having "faith" in what He has said. 

      "Spiritual Action" is more Powerful than "physical!"

    Pray for "True Believers" in His Word!  Pray that the Lord "renew their minds" (Romans 12:2; Ephesians 4:23) to "believe" on Him and what He has said! 

    The Word says in Galatians 3:28 "There is neither Jew nor Greek;..for ye are all ONE in Christ Jesus." 

    Did we forget the "greatest of the commandments?"  (Luke 10:27; Mark 12:30) "...Love thy neighbor as thyself?"  Again in Galatians 5:14 which says "For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this:  Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."  How's that difficult?  Easy if one has the Spirit of Christ (Holy Spirit) and "Walk in the Spirit" and not "mind the things of the flesh!"  (Galatians Chapter 5:14-26; Galatians 6:1-9.) 

    Pray people become "True Believers" who "Walk in the Spirit" and live according to the Word of God for "Reconciliation of the Racial Divide!"

    My prayer would be simple.That God give all the mind of young children (before the world has tainted them) with regard to innocence. How we view others before parental/societal influences dampen them. It would be a simple line to God like: Please give all people the innocence of children. He would know what I meant. I think if that prayer were answered then our work here for Christ and unity would become effective. As long as minds are closed and partial to judgemental views we will sadly not see this happen.

      Mk 10:15 {paraphrasing} "Except you become as one of these little children, you cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven.  Great Response!

      Fire:  Thanks, but It is NOT me!  I only agree or disagree with each comment by "repeating" His Word!  My words r not "righteous" but His "Word has gone out & will not return VOID!" (Is 55:11)
