2017 Prayer Patrols ‘FOOT SOLDIERS’ in Bristol

By the end of April 2017, it is hoped that Peacemakers Prayer Patrols should once again be seen regularly on the streets of Bristol.
However, this will be a brand new way of prayer patrolling the streets, the leader of Peacemakers disclosed.

The revised team of patrollers will meet to pray, discuss and hopefully recruit new patrollers for this new phase of the project which started at the ending of 2002 when street crimes, guns, gangs, and street voience, was at its highest in areas of Bristol, namely the areas of St. Pauls and Easton.

Street crime soon fell significantly, and the Project was awarded by the then Cheif Superintendent Mike Rowe, for their contributions and hands-on involvement, which helped in addressing and reducing much of the gangs and street violence in these areas.  Over the years they continued to be a regular beneficial presence throughout other areas of Bristol and the UK.

In 2010 they launched their highly respected and effective crime-reducing strategy abroad.  And as the areas patrolled in the UK regained stability, the presence of patrollers on the streets became less prominent, although the work continued and increased globally with the installation of their website.

Through this media, Peacemakers successfully extended their reach as an online presence, to bless, encourage, support, inform and provide schools of training, equipping other prayer patrols worldwide.

 

A kickoff Meetup to discuss the new framework, strategy, dates and the future of Peacemakers Prayer Patrols is due to take place in Cabot Circus, Bristol, at noon,  on Wednesday 26th April. If anyone is interested to know more or wishes to attend this meetup, they are invited to use the contact page on this website, here they can leave their contact details, stating their interest, and someone will get back to them.

Namaste.

Five days until the end of 2016! and here, listed below, are the final 27 Countries of the 206 Countries Peacemakers have pledged to Prayer Patrol this year, by BLOCKS.

world-image-quoteIt has been a terrific year to date. There have been many published stories of horrific wars, millions of people were killed, injured, and suffered tremendous losses. But, there have also been much more glorious testimonies, of celebrations, victorious and courageous acts of giving and kindness, amazing stories of gratitude for lives saved, encouragements, personal development and numerous transformative adventures and innovations, the likes of which our planet has never before experienced, and Peacemakers are thankful to have had the opportunity to participate, by offering the global invitation to signup for the 2016 Peacemakers Global Prayer Patrol Mission.

"We are grateful for all who signed up to realize Peacemakers Vision for Global Peace in our world, country by country, one day at a time. It takes courage to hope amidst threats of terrorism.  It takes guts and personal strength and integrity to love the seemingly unlovely and to pray for peace despite ongoing news stories of the climate and economic disasters affecting nations.  Peacemakers are sowing seeds of Hope across nations.

The world needs love. If we must have hope in this world then let this be it, that Peace may reign in each person, starting with us, and to the world, Let there Be peace! Let's do this. Let's do it now. Amen." 
 
- Comments and Prayer by Her Ladyship, Reverend Dawnecia Palmer, Peacemaker Prayer Patrol Commissioner.

Peacemakers Prayer Patrols warming hearts in Fishponds and Easton

Feedback for Fishponds Patrol

It was good to be out Prayer Patrolling on the streets of Bristol again, especially as we were going to be in Fishponds, an area that we had not prayer patrolled before.  This is a very popular shopping area consisting of the usual Post Office, banks, supermarkets, retail shops and general stores, small local enterprises, schools, churches, bingo hall, public houses, car showrooms, and a thriving convenient bus route into City Centre, train and bus stations.wp_20161022_14_30_17_pro_li

So, it was a big shock to us, as well as for the residents of the Fishponds area, a couple of weeks prior to our patrol, to learn that a young 10-year boy was viciously attacked by thugs as he walked home.  The boy suffered grievous injuries to his head and body after he was beaten up and thrown to the ground, and kicked many times. The thugs then ran off and left him there until a passer-by came along and found him bloodied, lying on the pavement only  a couple of yards away from the main traffic light and pedestrian crossing. [*See Newspaper report on this story at the end of our reports]

wp_20161022_14_36_07_pro_liIt was a bitterly cold Saturday afternoon but we were determined to bring the  warmth of our prayers and goodwill to the streets of Fishponds. We felt that Prayer Patrol would serve as a timely crime prevention tool and a good way to help re-boost morale and confidence on the streets.  It was a very interesting and well-received Patrol.  Several Passersby stopped and engaged at our Prayer Stops, where our two youngest patrollers, ages four and five, along with older members of the team prayed with them. Many people told us that they were moved by the braveness and prayers of the children.  One man was so moved that he ran across the road  to the Bakery and came back laden with cakes for them.

It appears that the incident with the boy was a one off, the perpetrators were caught, and the attack is in no way a reflection of this usually peaceful, contemporary area of Bristol.

Feedback for Easton & Old Market Patrol

It had just started to rain as we headed out for the Easton and Old Market Prayer Patrol, but our spirit was high. It has been a while since we did patrols on this particular route. The streets were exceptionally quiet, perhaps because it had been raining on and off during the afternoon.

Our starting point for the Easton  Patrol was St Marks Churchsugar-loaf which is next door to Sugar the Loaf Pub. The church was closed and not one church member in sight, but the pub was open and three men sat outside having a drink in the drizzling rain. At first, they were intrigued with our high viz jackets and then became even more interested when we told them that we were out Peace-Keeping and blessing the area. The rain continued to fall, becoming heavier as we went along, soon there was no sign of anyone walking the streets, so we decided to take a shortened route back to the base.
3-back-birdsNearing the Three Black Birds Pub we noticed a man standing in the doorway, drinking a beer and enjoying a cigarette.  As we got to him we did our usual greeting and he responded cheerfully and wanted to  engage us in conversation, he also had a prayer request, which we told him we would pray about once we got back to base.  But as we were moving away he called out “Please. Please, Please remember to pray”, it was urgent and we did.

Our final prayer stop was at a newly opened Resturant in the area. The owner welcomed our prayer for his new business, and even offered to feed us, and although the food smelt lovely and the atmosphere inviting but we had to decline his offer as we were still on duty.

This was one of our shortest ever patrols owing to weather conditions, and we finished soaked but greatly inspired.

Peacemakers “FOOT PATOLLERS” are back on the streets of Bristol

Global Prayer Mission- November

Once again the Peacemakers Team of hopefuls will take to the streets of Bristol, with much enthusiasm and positive determination, that their Prayer Patrols will be a beneficial presence and great upliftment to these communities.

Prayer Patrols started in the then crime-torn area of St. Pauls, Bristol. There were several street gangs and drugs influencing the peaceful neighborhoods then, making it very unsafe to walk about, day or night. Together with the community policing, and the involvement of other community groups and organizations, along with some residents, Prayer Patrols were at the center of providing a valuable, visible  presence in the area.  At one time they were patrolling the streets almost 24 hours per day.  They also opened an office in the area, the Peace Embassy, for concerned residents,  youths, and local groups.

Today, it is a different story, street crime in St. Pauls is at an all time low in terms of street gangs, community violence, or hostilities. WP_20160325_14_32_51_ProThen, the City Council allocated funding to community groups and projects, regenerated the area with new buildings and other neighborhood improvements, in housing, gardens for residents, and parks, etc. The streets are definitely safer these days, we found new communities have moved into the area, and there are quite a few new enterprises dotted around.

Peacemakers, however, are keen to maintain rapport, as a peace agent and a beneficial presence for good, in these areas. So, from October to December 2016, they will be out again rigorously patrolling the streets of Bristol. **See below for areas, dates and times**

 Autumn 2016 Prayer Patrols in Bristol:

*Fishponds                                  Saturday     22nd October        2.00pm (Meet up outside Morrisons Supermarket, Fishponds, on the forecourt to the side, and by the steps a couple of feet away from the Bus Stop)

*Easton & Old Market          Friday          18th November     6.00pm (Meet up on the street, outside st. Marks Church, Easton,next to the pub)

*St.Pauls & Stokes Croft      Friday          9th December        6.00pm (Meet up outside St. Pauls Learning Centre, St. Pauls)

The 2017 UK Patrols will include Bishopston, Staple Hill, Park Street, Bedminster, Barton Hill and St Werburghs.  Dates and times of these patrols are still to be decided and will be published at a later date.

If you are interested to know more about Peacemakers or wish to join us on any of the patrols, please do get in touch with us via the CONTACT US page.

Peacemakers Prayer Patrol Global Prayer Mission : September 2016

Whilst a vast number of the individuals all over the world are  focused on a seemingly problematic  world, Peacemakers Prayer Patrols focus is to bless humanity with prayers and loving thoughts for the upliftment of the entire world, in the awareness that all creation is held in the mind and bosom of Blessedness. And holding this vision, we pray ‘Let Peace Reign’.

WP_20160124_12_59_40_Pro “Our prayers works brilliantly, says Reverend Palmer,  and even though we hear of wars and rumours of wars in the media almost every day, I am absolutely conscious and resilient to a transparent knowing that good prevails, no matter what they say. We have got to hold this vision. And as more and more of us hold the vision of a peaceful universe, vibrating peace through everything and everyone, eventually it will break through the illusions of fear, panic, hatred and greed. The majority of people long for peace, but our leaders make preparations for war, this sends a mixed message to the universe.”

PPP Global Prayer Mission Focus for September is  as listed Below :

 Please sign up to join our 2016 Global Peace Mission for a culture of peace on earth and goodwill towards all humanity.

 "We pray believing that all is well, because someone has got to see it so. Someone has to raise the bar to high vibrations of inner eye seeing (insight) that all is well on behalf of humanity. 
Right now, in time, this may appear to some as a rather simplistic ideology, but is it not better to hope towards the good, than to wallow in the the aftermath of what has been, the destructions and fragmentations of dashed dreams? 
I think that it is high season to awaken to a call to service, to pray peace and abundant blessing for all of humanity. 
We need to begin to see as God sees, faithfully sending sunshine and rain upon the just and the unjust alike, and so we too must arise as conscious rain through our peace-full thoughts upon this pleading earth, until there is peace, respect and safety for all. 
For the sake of mankind and the future of our planet, I let it be, and in faith proclaims, and so it is"

Peacemakers Prayer Patrols USA – Last stop, Tennessee!

Our last stop for PEACEMAKERS Global Prayer Mission USA was Tennessee, Nashville’s Cumberland View Projects, aka, the infamous Dodge City. We were told that this was one of the most crime-ridden areas, and had a string of weird looks and much discouragements from residents living outside the area. They told us that it would be unsafe for us to go there. But, this was not the first time we were told this about an area, town or city which we were about to Patrol. Thankfully we had Prayer Shields in the UK, New York, and Florida.

On the morning of the Patrol, our guide did not turn up and we were unable to make contact with him by telephone.   However, we had a friendly  bus driver who was familiar with the area and along the journey, we had opportunities to listen and chat with computers, and to pray.

As we were approaching Dodge City, the heavens opened. It rained continually, and so heavily, in fact, it lasted  the whole period designated for the Patrol, so that we were forced to stay on the bus, and to pray from the bus.  We could barely see through the rain drenched windows, and the little that we did see driving through the projects, was not a pretty site.dodge city

On our way back into the City, the rain began to lift, and we got off the bus outside Nashville’s Women’s Rescue Mission.  We were not met with kindness nor empathy, and we were not allowed to speak with the women inside nor on the grounds outside. Someone said this was perhaps because we did not contact the Centre manager beforehand, and therefore we had no permission for a visit.  But, there was a sheltered area about 200 yards across from the main Mission building, where several women sat smoking, taking cover from the drizzling rain. These women were extremely hard to reach. Some of them swore, some turn their backs as we approached them, one woman spat on the ground and a few  just looked as if they were looking straight through us, their eyes appeared glazed as if staring into space, while some chatted in small clusters. However, of the lot, one young woman agreed to speak with us. She said we should refer to her as Dee.

WP_20160817_10_31_33_Pro_LIDee has been homeless for around 4 years, spending time in several shelters, and moving through a few States, but had been at this one for almost 2years. At first, she appeared sarcastic in tone, but as we engaged in conversation, she became less suspicious and became open and engaging. She told us that it was hard for someone to get out of this sort of situation, but that she longed for change. She was hopeful that one day she too would have money, get a place of her own, and make a better life for herself as well as having sufficient to also help others. She was keen that that break would come about from the lottery or some other big break like the Lottery.  Dee had done some volunteering in the past, she had seen others getting out but somehow it seemed that she was never fortunate to be offered that chance.  She also said that women sometimes were raped, robbed and abused in some of these Homes, and she was tired of this way of life. We listened and prayed with her, during the prayer a worker came over and ask us to move on. We truly felt that this was a case that Peacemakers could adopt and offer some sort of sponsorship.  Dee would not give us her full name nor a personal contact telephone number, but she did promise to visit our website and that she would contact  Reverend Palmer through the Contact Us page.  So far, we have not heard from her. It is our hope that in time she may get in touch.

Dee remains in our thoughts and prayers, and although we were not allowed to use our camera on the grounds, we got one of Dee and the Rev as they sat in the shelter across from the Mission Centre.WP_20160817_10_31_05_Pro_LI (3)

PEACEMAKERS “DESPERATE MEASURES FOR DESPERATE TIMES ” – Peacemakers Prayer Prayer Chief response to recent Dallas Shootings

> Right: See Video recording  of Minnesota Police shooting

 

“It appears that we are living in desperate times,” says Peacemakers Prayer Patrols Chief Reverend Palmer this morning, in response to the recent civilian and Police shootings in Minnesota, Baten Rouge and Dallas. She continues, “It seems that the world is gone mad, quite mad. When persons aren’t planning to kill themselves, they are out there planning to take the life of another.

This insurgence of an insatiable desire to kill must not become the expected reality for our world.

We are being fed bad news of these atrocities day in and day out. There is also a surge to watch, listen to or else to participate in the most despicable killing acts, through the games being built and manufactured or through the films and programmes being made and produced. All in the name of industry, greed, in an  unconsciousness of psychological disorder.

But in all of these bizarre random and sometimes coordinated acts of violence, we must realise that these aren’t really new to the planet.

These barbaric acts of violence may appear new and unsettling for our times, but acts of this sort has perpetuated the earth ever since mankind yeilded to the temptation of fear, to himself in separation, and away from the perfect alignment of the All Good, the glorious source of Life itself.

And although throughout the annals of history we have been shown redemptive processes, even the ultimate act of sacrifice and service to restore us to an original statehood of love and wholeness; mankind still crumble to the temptation to yield to the wretched insane idea of the basest of selfhood mentality, which is so totally off key, seeking to die and to kill, instead of yielding to the call to live, full, vibrant, magnificent lives.

Desperate measures mean not yielding to the fear of the hurt we think we feel about ourselves. Also not yielding to the fear of being hurt by others. Nor yielding to the fear which tempts us to hurt others. Therefore in true order, we should begin to love value and respect life itself. Then and only then, may we be able to love, value and respect it within ourselves. This would cause us to value and respect life in others, and ultimately,  begin to hope that other people are also seeing life in the same way.

This is a rather simple but important measure, imperiative for the regeneration of our planet and ongoing good of mankind.

In fear, a person plans to take his own life. Feeling that his or her life is worth nothing in this world or at least, they feel that their life is of a far lesser value, especially in the cases of some suicide, and other cases where suicide bombers do it for rewards in the afterlife. In both instances, they were unconscious that the same LIFE that gave life in one existence is the same life everywhere.

At the root of all this destruction is fear. It is not about race, creed nor colour. It is about fear. It is this same fear and total disregard to life which prompts a Police officer to kill an unarmed man, and visa versa, an armed civillian killing an armed Officer. Fear takes on many disguises.  

Fear has built and instituted religion so far back that unless man wakes up now, we will keep destroying ourselves, each other and the planet. A person might even say I am all alone, I feel so lonely, not realising or conscious that the life which breathes them is everywhere present. We are therefore never alone in life. And life is always good and magnificent.

Someone once told me that it would take a miracle to change the world, and I have pondered these words for years.

                   A miracle is a desperate measure.

A miracle to me means that something that is beyond the scope of the mere matter. And you know as I do that us humans, animals, in fact, everything in which the breath  of life has a domain, which is the entire stuff of existence, including things inanimate; yes, you and I know that we fear everything that we do not quite understand, including ourselves.  Have you never heard of the person who asks himself why am I like this, why can’t I stop this?….  And so it is that we have become afraid of ourselves. And this fear drives us to overeat, to get angry with ourselves, so much so that we seek ways to cheat and so to kill this self, in hope of escaping from the lesser we feel we are now, because of the false illusion self we think we should be, or have, or gain or become.

                          Love, Value and Appreciate life FIRST

But I encourage us all, including myself, that life is magnificent still, it will always be as it is. There really is no now in life, even this newness we speak about so mindfully  is simply like a drug to hide away, to cushion and protect ourselves or else to create a false sense of a better self.  No no no, we must see that it as we begin to Love, Value and Appreciate life FIRST, then life within our individual selfhood, that we could even begin to hope for change. All the praying will be in vain until this action is taken. Praying does not stop anything until the thing we pray for is stopped. However, our prayers can and do influence the good change we wish for. WE must all seek to become the good we wish to see in our society, in order for the miracle of a radically transformative environment on earth as in the Heaven.

Do you love, value and respect Life? In your own body? in others? When we speak of others, it is interesting that people often categorise this ‘others’. They speak as if the life itself within a close family member such as  child or parent, husband and is different in an in-law, a close friend, a neighbour, a workmate, the person we meet on the bus, the doctor, or the distant person of another tribe and country. And so you can begin to see that it is truly only as mankind is sent back to the drawing-board, ego-free, to begin again. To look and see Life in Its totality, fairness, opulence, magnificence, beauty, fullness, allness, and okness. Only then, will mankind catch a glimpse of what he can become, of who he truly is, and who you and I truly are.

Years ago one man tried to decree that this was the way to peace, love, and life. And as we know the story’s end, the people groups of the world back then, stoned, beat, and killed him. But truth cannot be stopped, the truth cannot die. The truth is an eternal concept that will spring up again and again,  even though it may be chopped down time after time.

And so, I resurge this truth again today, it is no new truth. This is the truth that Life itself which is outside of time.  It is my wholehearted wish that these few words, as desperate as they may seem in our seemingly desperate times, that they will make a difference and leave an impression on at least one soul, as so create a spark of hope for a new earth. Amen. Amen”
