PEACE IN Troubled Times – VIGIL FOR MANCHESTER VICTIMS

Peacemakers with deep compassion for the people of Manchester and their loved ones wherever they are, and for the rest of the UK sends thoughts as prayers throughout. And it is from this place of vigil we pray again the words of our motto ” Let Love, Let Hope, Let Peace Reign, we let it be, and so it is.”

For many, this prayer may seem a complete waste of time, but in our hearts, we feel the love and peace, the only real anchor on which any people or nation can ever hang hope, in the knowing that love never fails. And so, in these times of seeming adversity, we reach in and up to the place of knowing and there find peace. Our prayer is evidence that peace exists in Manchester, and everywhere, despite ongoing news of terror, most assuredly PEACE reigns.                                             -- Her ladyship the Hon Reverend Dawnecia Palmer, Bristol Prayer Patrols

Manchester attack: Theresa May terror threat speech in full

  • 9 hours ago
  • From the sectionUK
Theresa May
Image captionThe prime minister said she did not want the public to feel “unduly alarmed”

Theresa May has raised the UK terror threat level to critical – meaning an attack is expected imminently – after 22 people died and 59 were injured by a suicide bomber in Manchester.

The prime minister made a statement after a meeting of Cobra, the government’s crisis response committee, on Tuesday evening.

Here is her speech in full.

I have just chaired another meeting of Cobra, where we again discussed the callous and cowardly terrorist attack in Manchester last night, and the operational response from the security service, the police and other emergency services.

It remains the case that, other than the terrorist himself, 22 people were killed in the attack. Fifty-nine people remain injured, and many of them have life-threatening conditions.

As Greater Manchester Police confirmed earlier today [Tuesday], the perpetrator was Salman Ramadan Abedi, a 22-year-old who was born and brought up in Britain.

And as the emergency services have confirmed throughout the day, his victims were innocent children, young people and their families.

Our thoughts and prayers are with them all.

I want to reiterate what I said this morning about the professionalism of the emergency services and the bravery of the people of Manchester. Through their actions, they proved that cowardice will always be defeated by bravery, that evil can be overcome by good, and that our values – the liberal, pluralistic values of Britain – will always prevail over the hateful ideology of the terrorists.

In my statement earlier today, I said that the police and security services needed to investigate whether or not Abedi was acting alone. Those investigations continue. But the work undertaken throughout the day has revealed that it is a possibility we cannot ignore that there is a wider group of individuals linked to this attack.

This morning, I said that the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) – the independent organisation responsible for setting the threat level on the basis of the intelligence available – was keeping the threat level under constant review.

It has now concluded, on the basis of today’s investigations, that the threat level should be increased, for the time being, from severe to critical. This means that their assessment is not only that an attack remains highly likely, but that a further attack may be imminent.

The change in the threat level means that there will be additional resources and support made available to the police as they work to keep us all safe.

As a result of the JTAC’s decision, the police have asked for authorisation from the secretary of state for defence to deploy a number of armed military personnel in support of their armed officers.

This request is part of a well-established plan, known as Operation Temperer, in which both the armed forces and the police officers involved are well-trained and well-prepared to work in this kind of environment. The secretary of state for defence has approved this request, and Operation Temperer is now in force.

This means that armed police officers responsible for duties such as guarding key sites will be replaced by members of the armed forces, which will allow the police to significantly increase the number of armed officers on patrol in key locations.

You might also see military personnel deployed at certain events, such as concerts and sports matches, helping the police to keep the public safe. In all circumstances, members of the armed forces who are deployed in this way will be under the command of police officers.

Precisely how the military and armed police officers will be deployed is an operational decision for police commanders and Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley of the Metropolitan Police will be making a statement giving further details at New Scotland Yard later this evening.

In the coming days and weeks, there will of course be many events hosted up and down the country. The police will work with the organisers and hosts of these events, to come to a judgement about how they can go ahead while making sure the people who attend them are safe and secure.

I do not want the public to feel unduly alarmed. We have faced a serious terrorist threat in our country for many years. And the operational response I have just outlined is a proportionate and sensible response to the threat that our security experts judge we face. I ask everybody to be vigilant, and to cooperate with and support the police as they go about their important work.

I want to end by repeating the important message I gave in my statement earlier today. We will take every measure available to us and provide every additional resource we can to the police and the security services as they work to protect the public.

And while we mourn the victims of last night’s appalling attack, we stand defiant. The spirit of Manchester – and the spirit of Britain – is far mightier than the sick plots of depraved terrorists. That is why the terrorists will never win, and we will prevail.

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

“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”

Next prayer patrol, this Saturday9th July, in the notorious  Miami Gardens known for its weekly drive-by shootings 

PEACEMAKERS PRAYER PATROLS IN NEW YORK – JAMAICA QUEENS ’40’ PROJECTS’

According to Wikipedia, Jamaica is a middle-class neighbourhood  in the New York City borough of Queens. The neighbourhood is part of Queens Community Board 12, which also includes Hollis, St. Albans, Springfield Gardens, Baisley Pond Park, Rochdale Village, and South Jamaica.[4] Jamaica is patrolled by the NYPD’s 103rd, 113th & 105th Precincts.

As of April 30, 2016, the United States has a total resident population of 323,730,000 and the population of Queens was 217,00 in 2010. The Ancestries in the area are as listed below:

  •  Black
48.2%
  •  Hispanic
22.1%
  •  White
19.9%
  •   Asian
10.5%
  •  Other
9.4%

You can See the 2015 Crime statistics for the area  *HERE – report from The Queens Ledger, serving Queens since 1919.  Most Queens neighbourhoods ranked highly in DNAinfo.com’s Crime & Safety Report, with nine of its 15 neighbourhoods ranking in the top 20. That’s a far cry from the early 1990s, at the height of the crack epidemic, when the borough racked up nearly 300 murders — three times the amount in 2010 — as well as 17,000 muggings, which breaks down to nearly 50 per day.

ppwideIt was an exceptionally warm Saturday afternoon, as the Peacemakers made their way into the hood of the South Housing 40’s Project.

Before going out we usually approached the local authorities Police to make them aware of our presence, in their Precinct.  This is not because we are expecting trouble, but, because we believe that after a patrol, the transformation begins, and often before the regeneration to come into fruition, the Police should allow the process. Although, sometimes, we have seen immediate effects. During our brief with them, one officer appeared sceptic and said “seeing is believing” when we pointed out some of the changes that  were are expecting to happen to the area, as a product of our patrols. However, we were very thankful that there was at least one officer who said he had heard about our work before, and that he too believed that our Prayer Patrol could possibly bring big changes to the community, uplift the residents and help to reduce crime.”

“The first person that we saw was a Muslim man. he chatted with us in a friendly manner, and although he said did not wish us to pray with him,  nevertheless, he also said that he would not mind a blessing. We were happy to bless him, then shook hands heartily before moving on.

We had many favourable instances to speak with, to pray with, to weep and laugh with, to encourage, motivate and bless the members of this community. WP_20160625_15_44_16_Pro 1                                                                        ^Pic: Barbara Haughton

There was also a positive response to our work with great testimonies of encouragement for what we do.

We had a  positive response to our work and great testimonies of encouragement from the residents for what we do.  WP_20160625_15_44_10_ProThere are so many wonderful stories that we could share with you that took place this day.  However, we will only be sharing half a dozen in this post, adding more in due course.    WP_20160625_15_44_52_Pro In the Project we found debris of all sorts strewn on the sidewalks, it is a busy area, people sit out in their front yards, on the pavements, standing outside shops, and in a tiny the park nearby, children play, oblivious that there may be danger close by.  And so, we find here a different sort of wealth, it is one of the soul crying out for change. Crying out for a chance for ‘better than this’. This is a people hungry for change”

(In some instances we might not use the person’s real name)

We stopped to speak with two men and a lady, at first they were  reluctant to speak with us, but, as we explained our purpose and  shared some life-changing stories of our prayer patrols, they began to warm towards us. Our first story is about Joe. We soon learned that Joe’s son, of 24 years of age, was brutally killed only two weeks earlier, near to the very spot on which we stood.  WP_20160625_14_54_45_Pro  As you can see from the picture, Joe is a tall, strong man. He has two other sons, and the one they killed was his youngest. He was a broken man. he cried as he shared his story. Joe did not ask for vengeance,  instead, Joe was hoping to see change for better in this neighbourhood. Sister Barbara encouraged and prayed with him. And at one point, it seemed as if he would fall out, so we both held him up. After prayer he allowed us to take photographs with him, and when we shook hands goodbye there was definitely a sense that his healing had begun.

Then there is Brendan, WP_20160625_14_54_26_Prohe is smart, feisty and humorous. It is obvious that he had been drinking, but he is not drunk. He said, “if it’s not about money, you might as well just move on.” But a little while later and after we had been speaking and praying with his friend Joe, he spoke with us and we had the privilege to bless his life, and impart some beautiful prophecies, which was very well received.  Before we moved on he said, “O man, I wish that I was in England wid you guys.” ” O man, this is great!” I assured him that Goodness is everywhere, right there, as the life of God in his breath, and not just in England.  As we hugged him, I knew without a shadow of a doubt, that a transformation had taken place, and that he knew it too.

“We were not permitted to photograph Dorothy, the lady that we met with the two men mentioned above. Dorothy was sitting on top of her makeshift seat, along the sidewalk. She is a pretty lady but her eyes and face are sad and depressed.  She has been drinking, and while I do not wish to judge her, I can smell alcohol on her, however, she is not drunk. She says that she wants a blessing too.silohette As we began to pray with her, I felt empathy towards her situation and the circumstances which account for her present condition. I felt impressed in my spirit to pray for her grandchildren and to prophesy that they will be the catalyst for change in the family, and not just for her family alone, but for her neighbourhood. I was vulnerable in prayer because indeed she had not yet shared any personal details with us. And soon as the prayer came to an end, and she could hardly wait to take out her cell phone from her pockets, and showed us a lovely photo of a baby girl.   Dorothy’s face beamed as she told us that she was happy that I mentioned her grandbaby, she says that the baby was  born June 4th and was not yet a month old. We continued in prayer to bless the child, and when we had finished we, we gave her a small  token of blessing for the child.  She tucked it into her pocket and set about telephoning her daughter to tell her of the prophecies. And when I indicated to her that she must see to it that the child receive the gift, she  seemed offended, saying,  “Do you think that I could rob my only grandbaby, who is going to do it for all of us.”  And we moved on knowing that we had been definitely in the right place, and at the right time, for this woman and her family”

WP_20160625_15_30_57_ProWe met up with Apostle Ralph Edwards of  One Way Intl Ministries INC. His Ministry is mainly on the streets but often lends a helping hand to some of the local Churches. WP_20160625_15_33_48_Pro

WP_20160625_15_33_09_Pro

Of this derelict site on the left, Rev says, “It shall surely come to pass that this place shall be a place of sanctuary. A place for new life. A space of God.” Apostle Edwards confirmed that 4 years earlier while he was in the area, at a prayer meeting, he heard the Pastor praying very similar words for the site.”

Below : a Picture of Solomon and the Rev

“And so, as came to the end of our New York Queens, South Housing 40’s Project Prayer Patrols, we cross path with a young man, whom we shall Solomon.  As here neared us, we stopped him, to ask for directions.  Courteously he showed us the way, and, as he was moving away, the Rev said that she was prompted in her spirit to talk with him about the work of the Peacemakers Prayer Patrols.

WP_20160625_15_50_49_Pro

The young man appeared very interested and was attentive to every word, hardly blinking and for the whole time he did not so much as move a muscle.  He agreed to let us pray with him, he thanked us profusely and  with a confident smile on his face, shook our hand and walked away, head held high.  “That’s a King Solomon in the making. That is if he really gets it,” says the Rev.

NEXT PRAYER PATROL – MIAMI USA – in Miami Gardens,  Saturday 9th July, 2016

PEACEMAKERS PRAYERS FOR VICTIMS OF ISTANBUL’S AIRPORT BOMBINGS

At the beginning of the year 2016, we were commissioned to pray for the world. Love, Hope and Peace is the charge. Six months in, and we have heard of scores of murders and all sorts of atrocities, on a global scale. We can choose to follow the charge and believe for change; or we can continually shift our focus to the terrible news reports of terror and fear. I recommend that we continue to pray, unceasingly, with great fervency and determination to see the invisible good, even amidst the illusions of chaos with its temporary disorder.

world of people2

“And so, in the wake of the Istanbul’s bombing, I pray.    I pray thanksgiving for the lives of the innocent dead. Strength comfort and healing for their relatives and friends. And reiterate the charge of love, hope and peace for the rest of us.”

While the killers are strategizing their next move to steal kill and destroy lives, I am hereby advocating a movement to protect, preserve and save lives. We might not all be able to perform the great action of actually stopping further murders, but, at least, we can all play a part.  world of peopleIf individuals would think of a country, and pray (an intentional thought for safety) for the people of that country, we would soon create ‘an intentional quota of goodwill’ for the preservation of dignity for the human race, where the safety and value for life is upheld, and permeates the whole world.

Peacemakers Prayer Patrols in Atlantic City

According to Wikipedia, Atlantic City is a resort  city in Atlantic County, New Jersey known for its casinos, boardwalk and beach. In 2010, it had a population of 39,558

Atlantic City was the inspiration for the original version of the board game Monopoly, especially the street names. Established in the 1800s as a health resort, today the city is dotted with glitzy high-rise hotels and nightclubs. In addition to gambling at slot machines and table games, the casinos offer spa treatments, performances by famous comedy and music acts, and high-end shopping.Undistracted by the glitz and gambling, in the early hours of the morning, Peacemakers,  Prayer Patrol a street of a neighbourhood, in a less glamorous area of the city, not far from the glamorous prestigious Caesars, and Tropicana Resort Hotels. WP_20160616_08_46_54_Pro WP_20160616_08_43_22_Pro                                      WP_20160616_08_48_14_Pro

 

 

 

 

Here we met a young woman,  she is a prostitute. She  seemed distracted as she spoke with us, her eyes busily scanning each car that passed by.  We told her what we doing out on the streets and she said ” we all need prayer around here”, most of her front teeth was missing or rotting.  There was a sense of hopelessness in her her voice. Reverend Palmer prayed for her and gave her words of hope.

WP_20160616_08_47_48_Pro

Just a couple feet away at the next corner and across the road from a strip club, stood ‘Johnny'(not his real name), a strong looking young man. He is dealing drugs, and it is not yet 9 am. He listened intently as the Rev shared a few inspiring words with him. He seemed touched by their conversation and accepted prayer. As they shook hands in parting, his demeanour softened, moist-eyed, he appeared genuinely transformed and thanked her, in a quiet soft voice. 

“There was also a small window of opportunity to meet and speak with, and to pray for, a few more people before the sudden outburst of heavy rain, which interrupted and cut short the Patrol.  The Rain fell continually over the following 2 days, and all we could do then was to pray from the view of our Hotel window.”  >See video clip below.

“There has been a ton load of petition, supplication and all sort of prayerful activities with certain amount of evangelism going on within this area over the years, along with many of these well meaning, goodwill ventures, and entwined within their programmes, has been the subtle hint of the ego, and a mega-fest of infighting for ownership of the presumed results.  This way of doing things is so putrid to the taste bud of a Holy God, and the way of Grace, that there remaineth the seeds of greed, conspiracy, corruption and a false sense of self-righteousness. No-one has the monopoly on God. No. Not a man, not a woman. Not a class nor creed. Not the Church and certainly not the state. We cannot outwit His righteous decrees. We cannot manipulate His hand to work within our set programmes nor our manmade schemes, for the sake of our lust and the intent of some grand position. No.  His Way Is perfect. His Way is Just and Right. It hath been declared ‘not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit’…and Spirit doth not need help. It is only as we are willing to align and attune with The Spirit of Life in God that true transformation happens.  By true transformation, meaning, where no one person, (that includes me) can be attributed the glory.  I think that for too long the spirit of Detroit has been glorified.city Hall atlas                               And it is about time that the Spirit of God is the true Spirit IN Detroit. I say Let it be so dear Lord. Amen.”
