Christians in the Kansas City area are invited to attend two upcoming prayer rallies.
The Plaza Pray Rally will be held at 6 p.m. this evening, Aug. 13, at the Mill Creek Fountain near the Country Club Plaza. The Stop the Violence Prayer Rally is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday at 27th Street and Van Brunt.
Both events are sponsored by Kansas City Awakening. Forty people participated in the first rally in June, which was organized by Bishop John Birmingham, the Rev. C. Michael Bobbitt and William Anderson.
“Prayers were made to end the violence in our city, especially black-on-black murders, and for the family of little Legend Talifero,” Birmingham said. “We prayed for justice in our nation and a return to biblical morality. We had a casket at the prayer rally with pictures of all the children who had lost their lives to gun violence. Then we earnestly cried out to God to send revival to our city and nation. We prayed especially that God’s true church would awake and become Jesus’ voice in our messed-up world.”
In the midst of these immense difficulties we face, we need an immense movement of God that can only be found in a city-wide, nationwide revival, he said, quoting II Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
“Our prayer rallies call for true justice and a great movement of God’s Holy Spirit upon our city to return to biblical righteousness,” Birmingham said. “The Plaza Prayer Rally gave us a taste of what could happen if Christians join together in prayer for our city and nation. We appreciate the 40 dedicated saints who joined us on July 9, Now we are looking to hundreds to come from all races and denominations to intercede in unity for great moving of God’s Holy Spirit. Come and join us to be a part of this historical move of God in our world.”
