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 End-of-year Prayerthon

The stories following the 2020 Covid pandemic is not like anything the world could have envisioned as we came to the close of 2019. At that time PEACEMAKERS issued a CALL to PRAYER, inviting people to join them on the streets of Bristol and globally, to pray forgiveness, healing, and closure for the old – and blessings and favor for the new. The invitation was met with a mediocre response reflecting a business as usual attitude to prayer and the power of unified prayers.

WHAT?

As we approach the end of 2020 PEACEMAKERS is sending out a Global Invitation to join with the Bristol Prayer Patrol and City Safety  Patrols as they embark on 7 days online Prayerthon, which will include a Prayer Circle Meetup in Bristol.

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.”

PEACEMAKERS CONDOLENCE MESSAGE TO FAMILY OF murdered ANDRE GAYLE and heartfelt words with regards the recent knife crimes in the Easton Area of Bristol

A 24-year-old man will appear in Bristol Crown Court charged with murder, following the death of Andre Gayle. The 29-year-old died in hospital after being stabbed outside Easton Community Centre in the early hours of Monday, August 31.

City Safety Patols and Prayer 
Patrols maintain  prayer presence in the Easton area.

 

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. The fact that he was runing to save his life is testament that he wanted to live. The right to live is every person basic human right. Peacemakers are planning to rerun their campaign Respect 4 Life in light of the recent spurt of deaths, and serious injuries due to knife crimes. We pray that comfort, strength, and healing may prevail over hate, fear and revenge. May the Peace of God wash over those who are in grief and mourning at this time. Let there be love, let there be hope, let there be peace. Amen.”

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”

NEED PRAYER OR PRAYER SUPPORT AT THIS TIME?

Peacemakers are here to Pray for and to offer Prayer support for you and your loved ones. If ever a time we need Prayer it is now. Prayer can move mountain they say, but prayer can also be the quiet hush of comfort in your soul when you are worried, confused, feeling lost, do not know where to turn, feeling alone or abandoned, sick, or afraid.

Prayer Works both on a surface level but also on the inside as an invisible relief.

Why not try Prayer today? Go to the CONTACT US or PRAYER REQUESTS section on the website. Please enter your details there and what you would like us to pray about. Your information will be kept safe with us and it will only be shared with the Practitioners that are praying for you.

There is a scripture that speaks of five unwise people who got locked out of their blessings. These people were also called foolish ones. There are ten persons in total, the five not mentioned in our story today are called the wise ones. For our story here we will be looking at the foolish ones. They all had the same opportunities which were to receive a great big blessing, with the added bonus of meeting and spending time with the CEO and source of the blessing.

The foolish ones spent their waiting time looking about the physical readiness of the situation. Much like what is happening around us today. People everywhere are mostly concerned with managing their physical health, exercise, nutrition, and so on. And these are good, but, there is that which is better, and still, there is what which is best. And so the foolish people went off to do more of these good things, just in case.

And so it is that while they were gone or were otherwise preoccupied, their Blessing came, the CEO and source of the blessing came. The wise ones who were duly prepared and watchful received their Blessing and were invited to spend time with the CEO. By the time the foolish guys returned or tried to correct their attention, they realized that they had lost their opportunity to their blessing.

What is the moral of this tale for us today? The answer surely must be “Prayer in the time of Corona”. Yes, we need to safeguard ourselves physically, such as social distancing, washing of the hands for 20 seconds, not touching the face, etc, and, staying in except for emergencies. Even a child can roll off these todos.

But there is something higher, deeper, wider, that must take our attention, and that is Prayer. Prayer is our connection with the source of life, which is what we are all trying to preserve. Life is the CEO of our existence, yet most are unconcerned with this Life, whom some call God. Even in this time of pandemic Life does not seem to interest them.

“But, we need to turn in earnest to prayer, not to a god outside of ourselves as many have been taught to do, but to the Life of life that lives you even now. And there, in your faintest reaching out Life/God will rush in to assist. In fact, the secret about prayer is found when you come to the realization of your need to connect to the source of life. Here, you will have turned your attention inward to possibility, to the intelligence of your immune system which is full of all the vital information you need for a physically healthy immune system. And so your consciousness of Life sets the course for healing and health by sending a vibration of ease throughout the body’s field. ” Dr. Palmer – h.c. Wellness Studies, CCUIC
