#ReimagineJUSTICE...


Make Us One is a biblical, Christian response to the issue of racism. Scripture calls followers of Jesus to the ministry of reconciliation. Praying through Make Us One will open your heart and the hearts of fellow believers to become the answer to Jesus' John 17 prayer, that we would be one.
Features

•Make Us One is a 31-day devotional prayer guide that speaks into this issue. It is designed to open the heart of the reader so he or she can experience inner healing, repent where needed, and move him or her toward heart-transformation. Ultimately it is a cry for God to bring healing over this evil in our nation.

Each of the powerful, insightful, scripture-based prayers is written by a national prayer leader or pastor of multiple ethnicities. It has a hard-hitting, clear, prophetic voice for our times, and a message to the Church that it cannot turn a blind eye to this issue any longer, but needs to live out Jesus' prayer in John 17, that we would be one.

The book also includes short stories by people of color showing how they experience acts of either subtle or overt racism or discrimination to give those of us who do not have to deal with that, a picture of what our brothers and sisters in Christ face regularly.

•Great for a church to pray together.

ABOUT THE COMPILERS

Phil, 

You posted a blog POLITICIZED PRAYERS, DON'T BOTHER, on August 12, 2020 at 11:04am

 

I shared a blog TRADITIONAL COLUMBUS DAY POEM – REIMAGINED, on September 4, 2020 at 10:26pm:  https://praynetwork.ning.com/profiles/blogs/traditional-columbus-da...

 

Today you sent an E-mail calling for us to pray with Jesus from a Biblical Perspective Toward Racial Healing.  How can we pray without confessing and repenting our perversion of Jesus’ teaching? 

 

Maybe we should first consider something that should not be Re-imagined…

 

UNREPENTANT PRAYERS, DON'T BOTHER!

 

Organized churches of “men” must confess and repent.

Papal Bull Dum Diverersas - 18 June 1452

Pope Nicholas V issued the papal bull Dum Diversas on 18 June, 1452. It authorized Alfonso V of Portugal to reduce any “Saracens (Muslims) and pagans and any other unbelievers” to perpetual slavery. This facilitated the Portuguese slave trade from West Africa.

The Bull Romanus Pontiflex (Nicholas V) - 5 January 1455

The same pope wrote the bull Romanus Pontifex on January 5, 1455 to the same Alfonso. As a follow-up to the Dum Diversas, it extended to the Catholic nations of Europe dominion over discovered lands during the Age of Discovery.

The Bull Inter Caetera (Alexander VI) - 4 May 1493

In 1493 Alexander VI issued the bull Inter Caetera stating one Christian nation did not have the right to establish dominion over lands previously dominated by another Christian nation, thus establishing the Law of Nations.

 

Together, the Dum Diversas, the Romanus Pontifex and the Inter Caetera came to serve as the basis and justification for the Doctrine of Discovery, the global slave trade of the 15th and 16th centuries, and the Age of Imperialism.
