Peacemakers Patrols praying Peace on the Streets of Bristol once again…

On her day off from Nursery, she happily accompanies her Mum on the latest round of foot Patrols, in the Barton Hill area of Bristol. Patrolling through the section  of a housing estate, with predominantly Muslim Somalian families, the Prayer Patrols found a warm welcome and positive responses.

THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD: Prayer Patrols Blessing the Community with Peace.

One young lady that  we spoke to said, ” ..What a lovely idea!”

Just over a year ago this area was at the height of Police investigations and continual focus from the Media. There was a lot of fear and concerns by residents, when body parts  of Becky Watts, a young 16-year-old girl were found in a terraced house, on the residential estate.  After many weeks of investigations, her  killers were caught and sentenced.  See HERE for full Story – BBC News

Today, we were joined by a woman who also lives in the area, she told us, how glad she was that we had come to pray in her neighbourhood. She said she there was still a ‘dark eerie feeling’ in the environment. However, at the end of our Patrol, she said she believes that the presence and prayers of the Patrols will help to transform the area, and uplift the mood around the lane .

“Releasing Peace on the scene where innocent blood was shed, is part of what we do,” says the Peacemakers Chief.   “This clears the area, recreating a more harmonious environment, and a sense of security and peace within those communities”

 

 

 

MAY: A Time of Hope

“For me, May means Hope. May is a time for HOPE, and HOPE makes one unashamed.” – Quote by Reverend Dawnecia Palmer

How these words sink into the very depth of the soul, filling all empty spaces with this glorious entity call HOPE. Here is the entry way to eternal rest. This was the promise of Jesus, the Christ to the world then. But for us today, in the twenty-first century, this still rings true for us, we do find our rest in HOPE.

HOPE: Heaven’s Open Promise on Earth. In hope and through hope we have access to things eternal. And this peace. This is rest. Right here and right now.

In this fifth month of each year, just before the half way stage, we get this stark reminder, as the month May. You may, I may, we may.  It is possible. All things are possible to those who believe. It has been said, “Take a leap of faith into the dark unknown”.  But I say to you today, “Jump! Go ahead, take a leap of faith into the light of all-knowingness, into all goodness, which is within you.”  This is the shift that takes place when one chooses to let go of their ‘what ifs’ and their incessant ‘buts’ to enter into the glorious state of ‘YES’.

May flowers The yellow emperorMay, is a word that works on the subconscious levels to bring us the reality we are seeking. It is ok to say Yes, and the truth is, that you will never know until you do.

After much meditation on the idea of May as Hope, a
whole new realm opened up to me. It is significant that it is the fifth month.  Five is significant on many fronts, examples: we speak about five senses of the body – sight, hearing, smell, taste and feeling. The five fingers of the hand. And five toes for the feet. I take in consideration and celebration those born without the full use of these faculties. There are also the five Elements of nature – Earth, air, water, fire, and ether or Air, fire, water, wood and metal.
May3“By this way of seeing and revealing, May then becomes a wonderful word of hope, a shift, spring time as grace, an unpredictable action, of many beautiful, spontaneous adventures.”

“I believe  that through ongoing collective prayers we are createing a supermagnifabilocious fortified field of goodness, and a magnificent presence on our planet. We must hold and maintain the vision that love, hope and peace is the climatory environment throughout the earth.

It’s a challenge to stay clear of the racus of bad news which often premeate the media.  And this we shall do, if we but set our intentions to right, seeing our atonement with Life, and insisting that we always hold a high frequency of gratitude.

It is high time to shake off the superstitions and suspicions, delete the outdated preset judgements, that only tends to immoral thinking and fake righteousness, and instead let’s think God, and get on with the imminent businesss of an awesome vision, the global mission of prayer patroling our beloved world.”

Easter Prayer Patrol Feedback

The three days Peacemakers Easter Prayer Patrols in Bristol was a blast! We wish to thank our ‘Prayer Shields’ for covering us in prayer as we patrolled the streets, especially for the late night Patrol in the heart of Bristol’s nightlife area.  I am pleased to announce that all went well! There were no adverse situations.  In fact it was all pleasantness and openness. We truly felt protected and had great favor with the city. We had many supermagnifabulocious opportunities to witness, and touch base with the local community. It was really great to pray with all the folks that we came in contact with over this Easter Prayer Patrol Triathon.

We began the first Patrol at  old Pub on Fox Road. We said prayers for Colin Winston’s family, and prayed for the safety of taxi drivers and their families every where. Although it was raining heavily, we continued to patrol the areas close by, and it was not long before the rain ceased and we were able to stop and speak with, and pray with folks.  WP_20160324_17_02_30_ProOne person we spoke with asked if  we would pray for her to have more patience…even though it sounded like a tall order, we knew that with God all things are possible. We were glad that we could be there for her.  I later thought about her request and even though we had had quite a few other requests up to this point, her honesty grabbed my attention and holds it still.  Here we were along the main Stapleton Road High Street, with its many shops and businesses, yet not one of these could supply the solution for this young lady’s need. Hers’ was not a commodity to bottled, tinned or packaged. It was not to be found on a shelf nor on the rails in any of these stores. What she needed was to be connected to the Source of Patience, and we were there as a reminder and advocate, to infuse her with comfort and a knowingness, empathy, understanding.  And to note that her request is valid.  I began to think about how many young mothers like her that had become hooked on drugs as a way out or those that had found themselves taking their frustrations out on their kids or the others that had thrown in the towel when things seemed unbearable, and had completely missed their God given destiny.  But thankfully, in this case we were able to administer some encouraging words, prayers and advice.  Rev also briefly introduced her to TBP ( a deep breathing technique with affirmations) and there was such a relief on the young woman’s face as walked away with her children.  A few minutes later as I pondered about the honesty of the request, her willingness to listen and receive, and the change that I had seen upon her face, I knew that if this was all that happened over the Easter Prayer Patrols Triathon, it would have sufficed, because here we saw hope; a hope that made our hearts to rejoice. Amen.

Good Friday – Easter Prayer Patrol Feedback    

 It felt good to be patrolling the streets of St Paul’s and Stokes Croft again.  There were many changes, new businesses and enterprise in the area, although we did meet several familiar faces.  It seemed a lot calmer and felt much safer as we walked along.   Someone we spoke with commented that they felt sure that the the area had became a lot safer over the years due to our presence.  For this we are truly grateful as there was definitely a sense of peace. Then an amazing thing happened for us, as we patrolled along the top of Ashley Road, a woman which we had not met before, came out of her house and wanted to know what we were doing, we explained about the Peacemakers Prayer Patrols, and afterwards said that she wanted to bless us, so she went back into her house and came back out with freshly baked hot cross buns, delicious homemade marmalade and napkins.

The Patrollers visited with several business places, including the famous Glen’s Food Bar on the grounds of the  Malcolm X Community Center in City Road.  And on Sussex Place they visited with a groovey Barbers, a newly opened Polish Supermarket, and a lovely little Craft and Grocers whose owners are originally from Sierra Leone …

*New: Prayer Patrol Alert! Pray for Brussels

Peacemakers Global  Prayer Mission has today sent out a Prayer Alert inviting pray-ers every where to join in Prayer for the city of Brussels and the victims of the recent terror attacks there.

“Our hearts and prayers goes out towards the people of Brussels at this time.” says Reverend Palmer, Facilitator for Peacemakers Prayer Patrols. “May the strong wind of Peace usher in a collective calm amidst the devastation of terror and fear.  We issue forth love, comfort and healing to those who grieve and are hurting.   Praying that there will be an overwhelming solidarity of support from the rest of humanity around the World, as they seek to rebuild and get on with living.”

Brussels is Belgium’s capital and home to the headquarters of the European Union

In January Belgium was on Block A,  the first monthly list  of 18 Countries scheduled to be prayed as part of PPP Global Prayer Mission. The Peacemakers Prayer Patrols were commissioned to invite pray-ers from every nation to join with them to pray for each of the 206 countries during 2016.  They would do this in Blocks of 18 countries per month over the 12 month period.

“There were several Signups but there should have been much much more.” says the Rev.  “I suppose if people really took the call seriously they would have been more alert to pray, to reach out, to watch.  Prayer is a powerful force for good.  When I was told about this act of injustice on Brussels this morning, the first though that crossed my mind was that this is an awful thing to happen, but how much more awful it might have been had we not prayed. We must not give in.  We must not give up. We must continue to pray.  We must be proactive in our prayers.  We cannot wait for some tragedy happen support our neighbors in prayer.  We must not wait for a specific event such as a Prayer Conference or a specific Day of Prayer. It must be a part of our awareness of our oneness in the Divine and each other. When will we see that separation is literally killing us.  Whilst governments must do what they must to secure their borders and to create safe areas to live, work, and play and to travel without fear.  We must pray for those who deliberately seek to steal, kill and destroy these freedoms.  Pray LOVE, HOPE, PEACE against which no hatred nor weapons can stand.”

What do we learn from these sinful deeds, done to innocent bystanders taken by unawares? It is this, the the people who planned and executed these acts, did not love nor have regards for Life.  Not their own, not the ones they cut down. And really tragically, not even God’s. There is only one Life not two nor three.  Not black nor white. The life of God is one life.  Life doth not seek to devour itself.  It is one life, in all.

No one group or person has the monopoly on life.

Although it may seem difficult to do,  the people of Brussels and the rest of the world must not give in to terror.  We must seek to rise above the fear and hold our vibrations high.  We must rally energies to unify on a common ground that everyone has the RIGHT TO LIVE.  The Love for Life must become greater than money and possession, status etc. Most people grew up never valuing life over money and status.  In fact most go through a whole 24 hr without ever becoming aware of the breath of life.  Is it little wonder that Ego plagues the tortured soul that does not know it’s true worth, and therefore seek not only to destroy others, which blames and hates, and also plans to destroys  itself.

In this Prayer alert for Brussels, Lets us pray then that love would seed every human heart, growing hope within each soul, until peace bud forth upon the earth everywhere .

The next set of 18 Countries (Block D) will be announced in April.

Prayer Patrols Blessing our Beautiful World

“Life has place an awesome shared responsibility upon us to bless and care for our world.” – Reverend Dawnecia Palmer

The words of the song below speaks of a Creator’s love and care for the world.   In like manner each of us as stewards of our world,  become creators of the change when we pray.  Through our prayers we become channels of blessings  for the environment within and around us, towards global peace and harmony.

May Peace reign through love today, thereby filling each heart with a bright hope for tomorrow. As we let it be, so it is. Amen.

Namaste!

A HAPPY NEW YEAR A HAPPY NEW YOU

It is called a new year, and so many people are wishing hoping praying even dying for the change they desire to see in their lives circumstances and situations.

Some will be investing vast amounts into projects, trips, inventions, classes courses, etc in the attempt to kick start a change.

So what is it that make us view the idea of a new calendar year as THE solution for renewal? Here you must stop and reflect and answer for yourself because only  you can answer this.  And each persons’ answer will reflect their personal assessments and desires.

This inherit tug towards Light or Change is real for all of us.  This ever unfolding of ourselves towards a higher better more perfect selfhood being, has been the most sought after existential quality since the beginning of time.  The Bible is one such book that relates the story of the first Beings on earth to reach out from beyond their already perfectly formed selfhood and sourrounding, in order to seek the advice and instructions and wisdom of an entity from without.  The results of such an adventure we are told is the backdrop for the illusion of the pain and sufferings we see and hear  about in the news media of our world today.

So how can this be the start of A New Year A New Year for You?

Make-2016-the-best-year-

I must let you in on the secret which is really no secret because the truth is it has been around before the beginning of time. You see once you get this truth, I mean really get it….The happy YOU  you are searching for is already at hand within you.  Your true self and Divine nature is waiting  to express and to be experienced. This self that has always been at hand.  It is perfect,  being one with Life and is accessible to you Now, without charge.  But has been hidden for the ages through superstitions, ignorance, greed, manipulation and fear.

However,  for my example today I will here use the man Jesus, as a reference point and as one such individual who as Christ within his earth span years, showed and proved to the world that it is  possible both to attain and maintain a beingness of wholeness, goodness, forgiveness and love which transcends our physicality, space and time.

And so it is, that you must begin by generating a feeling tonality of being grateful to Life within your breath.  Thrive to believe in the goodness it is within you and that it is your birthright.  Then trust that the Substance of All goodness, healing and forgiveness is yours to partake and enjoy Now.  Aim to claim and proclaim it straight away!  For this is your way to the Happy You and not just another New Year.  This is the Lifeline to a Lifetime acceptance of Peace Joy Abundance and Love.

Wishing you a totally ‘Happy You’ and a Substantially Happy and Abundant Life, throughout 2016.
