PEACEMAKERS CITY PATROLS will be out on the street of Bristol brandishing the good news in an innovative way on Good Friday.
“Every day is a good day,” says Peacemakers leader, “but on Friday 19th April 2019, we are actually setting apart this day to use as the platform to do something good, by providing ‘a good Friday service’ which shares goodwill for all. How do we hope to achieve this? Our goal is to give out our ‘Life Loves You’ stickers to passersby, on a day that is regarded all over the world by many as Good Friday.”
They are inviting everyone to come and spread the love around town. They will be setting up a stand at the front-side of Debenhams, in Broadmead Shopping Quarter, Bristol from 11 am to 1 pm. There will be balloons, stickers with ‘Life Loves You’ written on them, and of course, a free Easter Egg.
The Emphasis behind this Initiative is the powerful, positive 3 worded sentence. They hope their efforts will raise the morale of shoppers and visitors to the area, to create a greater sense of worth and wellbeing, as well as a safety deterrent. Reverend Palmer, the visionary behind the project says, “When a person feels valued they are able to value someone else too. A small gesture such as our ‘Life Loves You sticker’ is very likely to create a ripple effect of an environment of charged with positivity, love, harmony, and peace. When a person learns that their own life is lovable, they can begin to see the value of life in another, hatred through fear of difference, and intimidation gives way to self-esteem, tolerance and kindness so that we can all enjoy a more peaceful and just society.”
Sometimes people just need a reminder … a little love can go a long way towards healing old wounds. We hope our presence will help to Make Bristol Better – Peacemakers City Patrols.
May is indeed a time of refreshing as it is a time of hope.
As we advance toward the half-year mark we stand on this one step that stands, as it were, between what has been, and what is possible.
So here we get to engage and participate the greatest opportunity of our lifetime, the opportunity to choose.
What will your choices be? Here you are given the chance to step in and step up, to the helm of your destiny: your unfolding.
Who and what am I? This fundamental question from which answers might well determine the rest of the year, the rest of your life.
At the core, you are the stuff from which you were beautifully formed. Designed to prosper in health and strength, beauty and love. All you could ever wish for and more that these are already within you. This, my friend, is the truth of your beingness.
And so, realising the truth about your essence will inform your choices going forward.
The way ahead is clear, inviting you to enter thereon, in the knowing that all is well and better still that all shall be well.
May each of us for the all of us, echo the soul’s sweet refrain ‘and so it is!’
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

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.
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.
All days are good, and all numbers too, but it so great to live in them when they are in the synchronicity of numbering, as they are today. They become great reminders of the one (1) Power, one as in (1st) First, and One as in an undivided unified field. The number seven (7) represents perfection.
Prayer for Today…
I pray on this day, the seventh day, of the first month of the year 2017, that peoples of the world, of the varying tribes, nations, languages, social status, political or non-political biases, would become as One, in The one Power – Love, and that through this wonderful vibration of Love, we may begin to enter a season of Peacemaking treaties with ourselves, each other, and God, in an undivided unified field of blessing on earth, as in heaven. Thus fulfilling the golden prayer of Jesus the Christ “…on earth as it is in Heaven.” Amen.
May Magnificence find an open sign at your soul’s door and may on entering in finds a welcome, and on dwelling there find a fully surrendered attendant, a humble steward, an open heart.
No gold, diamonds nor pearls can compare to the strength, power, affluence, and influence, of the most powerful thing on above and beneath the earth… Life … and It is available and accessible to you in every breath. May you become so conscious of your life, in each breath you inhale, for there you will find Magnificence, the life of God.
And that dear one is the supermagnifabulocious way to enjoy health and vitality, peace and love, abundance and favor in 2017.
Peace and Blessings to you, your household and all you do.
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.
It 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."

– Quote and prayers by Reverend Dawnecia Palmer, 11th September 2016.
Today, with thanksgiving and comfort, we hold in our prayers the lives of the precious ones which died on September 11th, 2001, in the ghastly Twin Towers attack, and for their beloved ones left behind.
As we remember, we do so in the knowing that they did not live in vain, nor did they die in vain, because we will never forget them,
endeavouring to keep the memories of them alive forever, within our hearts and lives.
On behalf of LIFE bestoweth Love, Hope, and Peace to all.
**Whilst we are specifically naming these 14 countries this month, we wish to make it clear that we are always, in the continuum, recognising the oneness of our world. We are Blessing the whole, at the same time, within our awareness that all Nations are connected through the one, the all good, and glorious flow of Life. Our Prayer, as it stand for this year, Let Love reign. Let Hope reign. Let there be Peace. And so it is, Amen.- One Global Family - Peace Garden, Bristol, 2015.
