IN REMEMBERANCE

Lest we forget…

Lest we forget, Andre Gayle,

Lest we forget, Colin Winston

Lest we forget, Evon ‘Bangy’ Berry

Lest we forget, Stephen Lawrence

Lest we forget, Victoria Climbie & Baby P

Lest we forget, George Floyd

Lest we forget, Breonna Taylor

And the list goes on…

These are some of those whose lives and substance were brutally stricken from them, torn down too early, defenseless murders.

In our prayer today, we remember them. We give thanks for having known them, and for having heard about them. Whichever the case, the memory of their lives leaves a stain on our consciences, a reminder, that must never forget them. It speaks to us that we must ensure that justice is brought to bear so that their death is vindicated.

They did not live in vain

Our prayer for Justice goes deeper than hearing that their murderers are caught, convicted, and doing time in jail.  And this we demand as part of our prayer.  However,  a prison term does not suffice their innocent lives pleads for. They ask for justice that says we should all be given the chance to live out the full term of our lives.

Life is God-gifted RIGHT

Every individual, in reference to skin color, learning and education, financial worth, ancestral heritage, religious belief or none, disposition and creed – ALL of the equal value where the safety,  protection, and preservation of life is concerned. And this is the foundation, root, and tenant of our prayer.

Our prayer today is a demand for fairness and justice, value and choice for ourselves and of our fellow beings, from every nation.

Let there be love peace, hope.

In closing, we pause to give thanks to LIFE, sometimes call God, or Allah, Source, or Divine Intelligence, and the list goes on. By whatever name, this one thing is certain and we can all agree is LIFE! Without LIFE there is no existence, meaning nor purpose. So, in the name of LIFE, we decree liberty of choice, right of life, fairness of recompense, and peace to feel safe. AMEN.

New-look for City Safety Patrol! & Upcoming Prayer Surgery

PEACEMAKERS City Safety Patrol is hoping to resume their regular rounds in Bristol with a fresh New-look this Summer! See Below

In order, to comply with the UK’s Government Lockdown guidelines and restrictions,  as well as Peacemakers Global’s strict health and safety measures, the City Safety Patrols placed the peoples’ safety health needs first and foremost.  And in light of these continuous social distancing procedures, there have been fewer and fewer visible patrol activities on the streets.

However, Peacemakers continues to be a beneficial presence,  creating fresh innovative alternatives online, reaching out, and offering that all-important prayer support, a listening ear,  reassurance, healing, and support.

A Google Meet  Prayer & Healing Surgery is planned for Friday 28th May 2021 at 12 Noon through 1.00 pm.  During the hour PEACEMAKERS Chief will listen, pray with, encourage, and console individuals whose lives have been dramatically impacted by the pandemic.  Please pass this information to anyone whom you think might be interested or that may benefit from this opportunity.  Please use our Contact US form, the Prayer Request TAB, or Email: peacemakersprayerpatrol @gmail.com. to get your Google Meet Link.

If you are interested but unable to attend and have prayer needs or concerns that you wish to share privately for prayer. Email us directly at peacemakersprayerpatrol @gmail.com.

We have been made aware that sometimes people would dearly like to join a Zoom or Google Meet gathering, but do not wish to be seen, this is totally understandable. This is often because they are unaware that if they turn off their camera before clicking the Join now link, they will be totally hidden and no one will be able to see them.  Also, If they do not wish to speak, or wish to hide their background noises, they can do so either by Muting their Mic before joining or by doing so at any time during the event. Thank you.

Please find below Words to Bless, Heal, Comfort, and Encourage your faith.

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.

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”

Halloween – Peace Angels in Easton

Teams of Peacemakers City Patrols were out and about in the Easton and Old Market areas of Bristol on Thursday 31st October.  as part of their ‘Be Safe Nights’ Initiatives planned for Bristol 2019/20.  They set off from the St. Marks Road at around 6.30 pm, it was dark, wet and cold and the atmosphere outside was charged with the smell of fireworks.

They passed clusters of adults and children dressed in horror costumes going from door to door ‘trick or treating’ along the way, and however innocently this may sound, there is always a chance of danger and ‘bad-will’ so Peacemakers hold that their  visible presence as ‘light’ which will help to ensure a certain amount safety in the areas they patrol.

All Hallows Eve or All Saints Eve was first observed as a Christians remembrance and celebration of the lives of devoted loved ones including saints known as hallows, martyrs and other faithful figures of the day.

The Patrols stopped to pray and to remember the life of taxi-driver Colin Wilson, at the very spot where he was robbed and brutally stabbed and died some years earlier.  At the time Prayer Patrols rallied members of the Easton Community as well people from across other parts of Bristol to join in a Respect4Life March through Easton and St. Pauls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some Christians abstain from eating meats on All Hallows’ Eve, a tradition reflected in the eating of vegetarians foods such as apples, potato cakes, and soul cakes.

Soulcakes are little cakes, made with allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, other sweet spices such as raisins currants with a little cross on top, these were given to the children and poor that would go from door to door begging, singing and offering to pray for the givers and their families, and some even offer to pray for their pets during the month of November. Over time it became a more commercial and seen more as a secular celebration and the soul cakes were replaced by trick or treating giving of sweets, costume parties, carving pumpkins into jack-o’- lanterns, playing pranks, telling scary stories, creating haunting attractions and bonfires.

The Patrols aims to be a beneficial visible presence and a source for good during Halloween and Bonfire Nights.  Their Bright Fluorescent jackets can be seen a good distance away, cars. They do not go from door to door offering payers as per the All Hallows Eve Tradition, instead, they are ‘prayed up’ using a modality termed Pre-empt or ‘Operation Presence’.

 

The patrol from St.Mark’s Road, Easton to Pennywell Road, was fairly unconfrontational until they got to the Goodhind Street area. There they found a medium-sized group of boys, some standing and the others sitting on a low wall-fence. They were swearing and speaking loudly, and a member of the group ran across the road, placed something in a letterbox and shouted  ‘come out you cowards.’  Another larger group of young people ran towards the direction of the Patrols. They were hurling fireworks onto the parked cars, shouting, swearing as they randomly threw more fireworks on the pavement and in the middle of the road. The Patrols then gathered in to pray, then formed themselves in a line and stood motionless in silence. Perhaps it was the light from the jackets and the effects of prayers but the older boys scampered and raced towards Pennywell Road, and a short time later the smaller group also fled the scene too. The night ended peacefully as the Teams gathered in at another crime spot along Stapleton Road where a few years ago a Solamilan youth was viciously stabbed to death.

The next ‘Be safe Night’ Patrol will be in the Broadmead area of Bristol Bonfire Night Tuesday 5th November 2019.  To join the Peacemakers prayer patrol or City Patrols please telephone the Commissioner on 075 083 90298.

Peacemakers are also advising people to report any of illegal activities that they are aware of through CrimeStoppers or directly to the Police 999 in cases of real emergencies. See Crimestoppers number below or because you are already browsing our website you can find more information about this service on Our Partner Organization page or view directly on their website.

 

PEACEMAKERS Happy Patch, snatch a little Happiness!

The City Patrols and Prayer Patrollers were out in support of the Spread a little Happiness Day initiative last month. The day created great opportunities for them to speak with, encourage and support visitors at their ‘Need Prayer’ table, as well as to laugh and share the happiness tone with the vast array of passersby, in the busy Broadmead Shopping Quarter of Bristol. It was reported as a hugely successful day which saw them handing out hundreds of Happy Patches. And  although there were several other events also taking place around the precinct on the day, they said their event attracted a steady flow of people throughout, and shoppers and visitors to the area danced to the upbeat music which was belting out through the speakers of their small PA, which was hidden from view beneath a medium-sized A board on which was written in bold letters ‘come and get your happy patch here today.’ (see Youtube video footage below)

 

PEACEMAKERS 2018 End of Year Message

As we approach the last few days of 2018 what lessons have been learnt? And are we any wiser going forward? Because if we haven’t learnt Life lessons and are none the wiser, we might very well find that instead of going forward, we are even further back than where we were, when the year begun.

In order to move forward, we must rid ourselves of these 3 things – Worry, Want, War.

Worry not – because we cease to be in the now – we have forgotten what we are.

Want not – because we haven’t yet learned that all is as should be – we have forgotten whose we are.

War not – because hate, fear, anger, guilt and pain consume, consummate and separate – we have forgotten who they are.

So as 2018 fades into history, let us be mindful of the follies that separatism brings,  disasters and wars. Wars within, and those without,  of personal, societal and country. Gross consumerism, materialism, maltreatment of the ozone through greed and political tyranny, gluttony and competitiveness increase the illusion of not-enoughness, and the incessant vacuum of discontent.  And so, we fill our world with fears and stress and worry. Worry, the no.1 killer and not only does it kill personal joy, but it holds nations in terror, blocks out the light of camaraderie and trust for humanity, and in fear they subscribe to war.

Prayer " How good to know that God Is, Peace, Constant Supply, Blessed Assurance. How pleasant also to know that our life is the the life of God, and that, that Life lives and moves us all. It is good, it is very good. And standing on the final step of 2018 we delcare, war no more, I AM my supply, both now and always. Amen, amen, amen."

The PEACEMAKERS Prayer Patrols teams are as rays of light, bringing hope and uplifting communities in the areas they Patrol.  If you are interested in joining or creating a team in your area please do get in touch with us through the Contact Us page.

Namaste and Blessings.
