PEACEMAKERS Goodwill Prayer in response to KILL THE BILL PROTEST Volience & Unrest

Thousands gather in Bristol for 'Kill the Bill' protest over police powers planPEACEMAKERS Prayer Chief speaks out in the aftermath of the violence and unrest following a peaceful Kill The Bill Protest that had been planned for Bristol. In her letter below sent to various media as well as the police, she calls for peace and a halt to violence, criminality, and disruption to peaceful communities. She is hoping that her prayerful intervention will create a wave and air of peace bringing some level of peaceful understanding, especially in the light of further protest planned for the coming weekend. Police are advising people not to gather.

Peacemakers have been successfully working behind the scenes for street safety with Virgil, Patrols, Marches, and Awareness Campaigns in Bristol since 2002 when violence was rife in St Pauls and Easton area.  They were also part of winning the City  Purple Flag status, which helps to attract a greater number of visitors into the city center at night and hopefully reduces negative perceptions about Bristol’s city center.

Reverend Palmer is asking for people to join with her and her team in praying for peace. “If you do not already pray or even know how to pray, then you can use the words of the prayer on our site.” **See below.

"God usually uses the foolish things of this world to create mighty changes,  sometimes it may take a little while to see the difference, but it usually comes through good in the end." - Rev. Dr. Dawnecia Palmer OBA AFP

To whom it may concern

Whilst we cannot undo or wish away the violence, criminality, misbehavior, and mishandling of the recent Protests on both sides of the law here in Bristol; neither should we be complacent and silent.

I for one do not condone or excuse the use of violence on persons nor the destruction and damage to property.

It is a sad day for Bristol and for the years of hard gruff between parties, communities, and the police, to build a level of trust and civility.

My prayer today is for peace and order to return, for a new way of communicating and listening. For openness, peaceful protests,  and freedom of speech, to be handled with higher levels of competency and conscious awareness.

I pray the Spirit of Peace over the citizens,  constituency, and constabulary of Bristol. May order return. May violence and fear find no place to hide or grow here. May those with the tendency to destroy and cause harm be found out, arrested, handled fairly and charged accordingly. Then, may the Presence of the ALL GOOD grace our city, releasing it from the shadows of thuggery and violence. Let fairness, equity, justice, and respect for life, and property, be the order of Bristol. This is my Prayer. Amen.

Reverend Dr. Dawnecia Palmer AFP  is Chief Commissioner of PEACEMAKERS City Safety & Prayer Patrols, they work in partnership with Avon & Somerset Police and Crime Stoppers UK.

MARCH 2021 – Fresh Hope

You might have been going through some rough times, where situations and circumstances were as dark and dreary as the cold wintery days.

Thank God, thank Life, we have managed to pull through, and here we are at the beginning of March 2021, at very the onset of Spring. Daffodils are blooming, buds and sweet flowers springing up in gardens everywhere, and although there is still a chill in the air, it is certainly getting brighter.

During the past few months of the Lockdown, PEACEMAKERS in compliance with the Government health Guidelines, have had to withdraw regular visible City Safety Patrols, however, the Prayer Patrol teams have been vigilant, safely sending out healing prayers for our City and people everywhere.

Sickness, fear, crime, lack of finance, loss, a break-up, or the recent virus situation, are a few of the areas that our Prayer Teams have been asked to focus our prayers.

PEACEMAKERS All Hallows Night Prayer Patrol

The streets were surprisingly sparse as the small band of hopefuls set out into the dark chilly night on All Hallows Eve 2020, their fluorescent jackets and candle holders glowing in the dark.

They stopped to pray at various locations scheduled for this patrol, beginning at Easton, Easton Way, through St Agnes, and into St. Pauls, then cutting back through St. Werburghs to finish on Stapleton Road. 

These are familiar grounds for most of the team members, and they are aware of how far things have moved for the better since the early days of Peacemakers Prayer Patrols, when crimes, gangs, and violence marked these areas. Then, Patrols were visibly out prayer patrolling days and nights.

 

The highlight of the night took place on the Green outside the St. Pauls’ Learning Centre in St. Pauls. Here they formed a Prayer Circle by placing lit candles in a circle on the ground and linking hands, as the City Safety Patrol officer read a prayer she had composed and written especially for the occasion. “That was a very moving moment for me,” remarked a new volunteer afterward.

THE PRAYER

As the team gathered to pray, several youths were also gathering in the distance across the street, and they were behaving very badly, throwing fireworks in the air and at passing cars. This did not perturb the group, they persisted in prayer, and in a short space of time, on hearing the Police siren the youths scrambled and ran away.

The people in each area seemed very welcoming and happy to see the patrols, most hailing them in a friendly manner as they passed by, with both sides maintaining the social distancing rules.

Along the main high street in St. Pauls, a woman stopped and asked them to pray for her knees. The group prayed for her on the spot, and there was a distinct tone of relief in her voice as she thanked them and waved goodbye. Later on, they stopped to speak with the young owner of a newly opened Beauty Salon. She said she welcomed the prayers and their encouraging words for the future of her business.

The night got progressively colder, and as they came to an end of the Patrol, someone commented, “At least we did our part, we can only hope that we did some good and lit the darkness.”

They said that that they are concerened by the recent rise in the numbers of critical knife related incidents in the area.

 

However they remain hopeful that the increased volume of police units in the area, as well as the media attention, and their prayer presence, will usher in a new level community liason, peace on the streets, healing in the atmosphere, and a decrease in street crimes, and that people will feel safe to go out.

         

“Our heartfelt condolences and prayers goes out the family and close friends of Andre Gayle. His was a life cut down too soon.

An UPDATE on PEACEMAKERS City Safety Schools Patrols/ Prayer Street Patrols in Bristol

PEACEMAKERS Patrols are well known locally and globally for the air of peace and harmony they create in areas they patrol. More recently teams of City safety Patrols and Prayer Patrollers focused their attention around a few schools in  Easton, Eastville, Whitehall, and the Fishponds areas of Bristol. Here they wield their super energetic prayer presence, to bring calm, restore neighborhood confidence, and promote good behaviors among the youths. 

Below are some picture highlights of their activities.

*NEW* City Safety Schools Patrols in Bristol

With the UK Prime Minister lifting the COVIV-19 lockdown regulations regarding outdoor spaces, some indoor spaces, including many local businesses and organizations, schools are set to reopen in September. The decision to reopen has been met with mixed reactions. For some families, there are deeper concerns for their children around the risks arising from uncertainties of classroom and playground integration.

And even though it has been announced that procedures are in place to secure safe bubbles between teachers and classroom groups, nevertheless there remains a certain level of tension, anger, and fear in the air.

PEACEMAKERS Patrols are well known for the air of Peace and general harmony they create in areas they patrol. Teams of Patroler have been patrolling around schools and Cycle Tract in Easton, Whitehall, and Fishponds areas of Bristol wielding their super energetic prayer presence during the Summer Holidays.

And to comply with Government Guidelines all indoor and most outdoor activities have been canceled to date, except for the newly formed PEACEMAKERS City Safety Prayer Patrol Bubble. These have been patrolling around Schools over the holidays’ and will continue to do other street patrols in local neighborhoods, lanes, parks, cycle tracts, and shopping centers.

“We are very much looking forward to taking our Community Safety Awareness presentations inside the Schools when it becomes safe for us to do so,” says Chief Commissioner, City Safety Patrols, Bristol.

PRAYER: ONE@ONE

PEACEMAKERS PRAYER PATROLS and CITY SAFETY PATROLERS invite you to join with them for a ‘CLEANSING THE ATMOSPHERE, HEALING THE HURTING and BLESSING THE LAND’ PRAYER CIRCLE, Wednesday 1st July 2020, 1.00 pm in EASTVILLE PARK, Bristol, BS5

Parkrun announce new circuit in central Bristol
Eastville Park

I am certain that you will agree that as a people, a city, a nation, country, and indeed the whole world, that our atmosphere and land, has been severely affected and disrupted by the COVID pandemic, and the brutal murder of George Floyd by a Police Officer in the US. The 8 minutes 46-seconds video of his sufferings and death was devastating, stirring outrage against racial injustice, which sparked mass marches, demonstrations, and protests in support of the CALL for racial justice worldwide. The PEACEMAKERS Prayer Circle on 1st July will generate a spiritual atmospheric charge to shift and renew, healing for health, justice for fairness, and a sense of protection and safety for everyone locally, nationally, and globally.

Are you willing to be ONE who helps to make a difference for your city, and for the George Floyds of our world? Are you ready to be involved in something that will create a vibration that sets in motion the sort of climate change we need, such as healing after the pandemic, fairness in the judicial, educational, and political systems Nationally and Globally? Will you be a part of the CALL for safer streets where EVERYONE feels safe and protected? Please help us pray a better, fairer, just world

Guardians of the Planet

“This is a WAKE-UP CALL and NOW is the Time for us to arise to action,” says the Reverend Dawnecaia Palmer, Peacemakers Prayer Chief Commissioner. “The pandemic, the ingrained racial injustice and inequality, has caused fear, suffering, death, and financial distress for many. Enough is ENOUGH. PEACEMAKERS will now rise up as guardians of our planet to pray the cures, the healings, and the TRANSFORMATION we so desperately need for our Atmosphere and Land at this time. Conscious prayer is the antidote. Consious Prayers are fervent prayers. Scriptures says ‘the fervent prayer of ONE produces much.’ There is a grave amount of people that are hurting in our world today. They need our prayer support. In fact, all people need prayer.

Today, I stand as ONE, and I am inviting you all to take up your positions as ONE with me, in this endeavour to recalibrate our world. To such a vision I announce WE CAN. I declare WE SHALL. I decree WE WILL. Amen”
