4th Sound The Alarm, November 17th 2021 !!! Bristol, Africa

The 4th PEACEMAKERS Sound the Alarm Online Midday Call to Prayer will be on Wednesday 17th November via Google Meet at 12 noon for 30 minutes.

There has been a change in our Keynote Speaker this Month as Rev Chavarria from Jamaica had to cancel, having been recalled to duties which would not allow him join us at scheduled. We were very much looking forward  to hearing from him, and wish him well in all his endeavours. Thankfully, we were able to secure a Speaker at short notice, hence the late announcement for our Prayer Call on Wednesday. I pray that you will be able to join us for our brief Prayer Meet-up, as well as inform as many as would be interested. Thank you.

The Theme for this Prayer Call is  ‘How showing Kindnesss in our Communities can help to lower crime levels’   Our Esteemed Guest and Keynote Speaker is Peacemaker Prayer & City Safety Patroller Shoannalee Samuels.

Ms Samuels is Second-in-Command at PEACEMAKERS, having been with with the Project since its inception in 2002. Her involvement and commitment to reducing street crimes and helping to building safer neighborhoods and communities is first class. In 2005 she was awarded the Bristol District Commanders Commendation in recognition of the Bristol Prayer Patrols in providing reassurance for local communities who would otherwise feel more vulnerable. PEACEMAKERS Prayer and City Patrols work in Partnership with Avon and Somerset Police and CrimeStoppers UK.

Shoannalee have been a major player in helping to set up and motivate Prayer Patrols in other Cities across the country, such as Nottingham, Mansfield, and Ledbury. Her calm, kind, and caring manner makes for a perfect Patroller, especially when faced with handling violent and intimidating situations that can sometimes occur on the streets.

Her children were the forerunners  for PEACEMAKERS Youth City Safety Patrols, having been part of the work since ages six and seven years old.

Lets meet up  here to pray peace across our countries, and safety on our streets.

We have had two major stabbings here in Bristol since our last Sound the Alarm Midday Prayer Call, As we can see crime is relentless and so must we. As a Guardian of the Planet for peace and safety I feel particularly responsible to try an bring as much awareness as possible to the **need for more robust prayer interventions, as well as **more personal approach, to address gangs and street crimes in our cities and neighbourhoods.

“Much has been done through Prayer & City Safety Patrols here in Bristol and other parts of the Country and abroad over the years, however we must up our game to become more proactive in handling these issues rather than reactive or simply leaving it up to the local authority. It is obvious that if the local authority could change mindsets and behaviours it would have done so, and though I am in no way saying we will completely obliterate street violence and gang related crimes, I am saying that I have seen first-hand that Prayer and personal commitment to actively engage visibly through the Patrols Scheme does work. In fact it works effectively, correcting many issues at the root cause, and brought about a safer, more pleasant areas in which to live, work and play.” ~Rev Palmer, Patrols Chief

The Theme for this Prayer Call is  ‘Why Prayer is a Good intervention for Street related Crimes and City Safety.’   Our Esteemed Guest and Keynote Speaker is Lewin Carr form Cambria Heights, Queens, New York.

Mr Lewin Carr is  CEO and Life Coach for Success Happiness Full Potential Academy. He is PEACEMAKERS Patrol Representative in New York. Mr Carr is very passionate about thriving communities, community safety,  personal empowerment, and the role that an individual can play in helping to build more balanced, safer, and just communities.

FEEDBACK from Sound the Alarm 2.

Chief Superintendent Mark Runacres was Esteemed Guest and Keynote Speaker for the Midday Prayer Call. He spoke passionately around the importance for initiatives such as the Prayer and City Safety Patrols and the role they play in bringing awareness and reassurance on the streets of local communities, being visible and clear, taking time and pride, and reporting.  He said the Street Safety Patrols show people care and want to be a part of the process, taking pride in their communities, and doing their part to make it a better safer place. He was very kind and sensitive in paying tribute to those Patrollers who had passed on, saying “..they made a difference.”

"Crime will not survive where Communities Strive" ~ Chief Superintendent, Avon and Somerset Police Constabulary.

When asked what more can PEACEMAKERS do to support the work of the Police in bring safety to streets and Communities , the Chief said, “Patrols  should carry on doing what they are doing. Continue to bring a very visible presence, reassurance, which encourages others to be involved. Patrols are able to walk up and start a conversation in a non-offensive and non-aggressive way which brings understanding to the story behind the perpetrators behaviour, a rich opportunity to likely impact their behaviour, doing what police cannot do. Your coordinated approach is able to pick up hotspots often encouraging criminal activities to withdraw and lonely places which help people to feel assured.”

NEXT PATROLS : Newtown,  Lawrence Hill,  Easton, and St. Pauls on Saturday and Sunday 30th – 31st October.  VOLUNTEERS ARE WELCOME via emailing peacemakersprayerpatrol@gmail.com  Ref: Oct/Vol

 

 

 

Prayer Patrol & City Safety Volunteer Patrols Needed!

PEACEMAKERS **NEW** recruitment drive for Prayer and City Safety Patrols in Bristol.

The PEACEMAKERS Chief Reverend Palmer has sent out an appeal for volunteers to help them patrol the streets around Easton and HillFields/Fishponds Lodge Causeway, especially over the next few weeks.

 

LODGECAUSEWAY PATROLS:

There has been a rapid escalation of Anti-Social behaviour along the Causeway, disturbing the local neighborhood, causing havoc and fear to residents. It was reported in the latest Fishponds Voice that Police have stepped up their patrols.  There has been a concern for a while, however, the aggressive begging and threatening violence have seen many not feeling safe to walk about or do their shopping in the area.

Working in Fishponds/Hillfields is not new for the Prayer Patrols who started their work several years ago when the area was named among the highest in the city for fear of crime. Then, owning a small Peace Embassy/Advice office, worked alongside the Local Beat Officer, Community Centre, Local Council Neighbourhood Engagement Team, and Church was regular in attendance to meetings as part of the strategic safety plans.  Over time the area saw great improvement, with increased funding and sponsorships, housing improvements,  new community facilities, and new business.

Several years later they patrolled the area again there were several incidents where local pensioners felt unsafe to go to the Post Office.  Prayer & City Safety Patrols have maintained sporadic patrols in Fishponds namely the cycle track which runs under the Causeway, lanes, on pavements outside supermarkets, as well as along residential streets, and as part of their Say No to Drink and Drive at Christmas.

RECENT EASTON PATROLS:

Police at the scene after two bodies were found in a Bristol houseLast Month PEACEMAKERS sent out a concerned plea seeking for volunteers to help them patrol the Easton area.  They did this via their website, sending out numerous generic emails and texts to patrols friends and families, local groups, and organizations and via radio Bristol in an attempt to raise safety awareness in the area and to prayer cover the streets.  Although the appeal did not seem to yield a large response, the usual team took the streets covering as wide an area as they could. Today, in response to the recent double murder of two days ago, where two bodies were discovered in a house on a quiet Wood Street, Rev Palmer had this to say, “And to think we were only a street away a week ago. Such a tragedy. We could never have imagined this in such a tightly knit community and on such a quiet little street.  I can only pray rest for their souls, and that the perpetrators are brought to justice, as quickly as possible.  Also praying for comfort and peace for the family and friends of the deceased men, and calm and reassurance for the other residents of the said street and surrounding neighbourhood.” 

PEACEMAKERS have been patrolling the streets of Bristol for over 20 years, seeing a massive reduction in street, knives, and gangs related crimes, bringing consolation and community reassurance to many areas dealing with the fear of crime. Totally non-profit they give of their time and care, freely, covering large demography of the City.  Most of the work they do is ‘heart’ says the Rev.  She explains, “There is no glamour or fame here, simply heart, and genuine compassion, humble empathy, and deep respect for the human race, and their potential to achieve and enjoy better, safer, happy, and peace-filled communities. We do that! Our presence fills the atmosphere with these, raising hope in the areas we patrol. Man needs food and water, warmth and shelter, and supply to get all these. However, without a level of safety both at a personal as well as the community level, there can be no real satisfaction in life.   The Police do a good job in keeping a level of peace, but there is a level beyond education and religion, which only ( *** ) can reach, to create the shift needed for lasting change.”

PEACEMAKERS ‘Jericho Patrol’ Update

Lunchtime Talk at Junction 3 Library: Imagining a city free from corporate  advertising | Adblock Bristol It was a bright fresh Friday Morning, 16th July,  a small band of faithful gathered together outside J3 Library Easton, Bristol, to pray at the start of, a Prayerthon Patrol, and, what turned out to be ‘an amazing Patrol’ as quoted by one patroller, at the end.

The route for the Jericho Patrol was to start with a 9 am Prayer Stop outside J3 Library.  From here they headed along the slip roads at the back of the Motorway towards the cross-bridge over the Motorway, linking Easton and St. Werberghs.

The 2nd Prayer Stop was the M32 Motorway. There had been a series of deaths through motor-vehicle accidents and recently the body of a young woman was found nearby, she had been stabbed to death.  When they arrived at the scene there was already a shire to a young man 23 years old that had recently died. The cause of death was uncertain to us, however, from the tributes tied to bits of cardboard hanging on the railings, and graffitied with chalk on the pavement, we gathered that it was a tragic incident, and yet another life was taken, much too early! We kept vigil and prayed before heading towards St Werburghs.

St. Werberghs had been a rough area for drunkenness, youth crime, and high fear of crime in the early days of PEACEMAKERS, some 20 years ago.

Then, Prayer Patrols were a regular feature at all hours of day and night. The Community has since turned good, with new buildings, better housing, well-kept gardens, renovated Community Centre, Upgraded Park, cleaner streets and lovely community vibes. Patrolling around and Praying here was a delight, to see the changes and to enjoy the sense of peacefulness – long may it continue.

Crossing over into St. Pauls carries a different feel these days, opposed to those earlier times when street, gun, knife, and gang crimes, robberies, and violence were rife.  On our more recent Patrols here we find things a lot quieter.  And it is good to see new enterprises, cleaner streets, new cafes and takeaways, freshly painted buildings,  and a well-kept park.  There was a positive welcoming reception to prayer and the presence of the patrols.

The crossways at Grosvenor and lower Ashley Road were our 3rd Prayer Stop of the morning.

There was much to give thanks for. “You are building on our prayers,” a patroller told a new business owner after they had been invited in, they prayed and blessed the business.

 

Stopping briefly to pray for an elderly gentleman whose business had slowly declined, and thanksgiving outside the St Pauls Library and community cafe, patrolling along  St. Nicholas Road through St. Pauls Park to the 4th Prayer Stop at Subways in front of the  Memorial Murial.

Jericho Patrols then headed towards the pedestrian corner of St Mark Road Bridge, Old Church, and Mosque, 5th and final Prayer Stop.  On our way over we observed much to add to our Prayer Shields list for future prayer, of which Grafitti is the most obvious.

I am very grateful, extremely thankful, to those who gave up their time and came out on the day, as well as the invisible Prayer Sheilds, the invincibles who covered us in prayer every step of the way.  Most of all to LIFE with the invisible host of Heavenly Angels. Ameen.

NEXT PATROLS:  Wednesday 4th August 11 am.  Starting at Prayer point1 by Eastville Park and along Fishponds Road, towards the last Prayer Stop which will be the Cycle Track behind Morrisons.

 

A global network of prayer, a force for good, a beneficial presence in the earth: to bless, protect, and actively engage with local communities.
