Pastor Donnie McClurkin is calling for New York pastors, civic leaders, organizations, politicians and government officials to meet at his Perfecting Faith Church for a prayer rally in light of the recent protests coming as the result of a grand jury deciding not to indict a police officer for killing Eric Garner.
McClurkin, the senior pastor at the church and gospel singer, called for people to come together for a prayer rally at his Freeport, N.Y. church Tuesday at 7 p.m. during a time of protesting around the country.
“I believe that the church body should not be a spectator, but a participant and leader in dealing with such issues as the recent verdict announced,” McClurkin said in a statement obtained by The Christian Post. “This is a time for the church to unite and raise their voices to God in prayer.”
The goal for the prayer rally is for, “leaders and their churches to come together, receive instruction and strategic steps through prayer, that will bring hope and possible resolve to the hearts of people in the community and globally.”
While McClurkin took to his Twitter account to publicize what he called a peace rally, he also made it clear that people could join his church in taking buses to Washington D.C. where people will march with Rev. Al Sharpton against the recent killings of unarmed minorities at the hands of police officers.
“PRAYER/PEACE RALLY 2NITE @PFCNY 7pm,” McClurkin tweeted. “Taking buses down to DC on this Saturday for the MARCH ON WASHINGTON w/#NAN & @revalsharpton ..join us 2Nite at 7pm and ride w/us on Saturday to DC!! Church must outcry against INJUSTICE-!”
McClurkin’s prayer rally will take placeTuesday, Dec 9, 2014 at Perfecting Faith Church 7p.m. ET located at 311 N. Main, Freeport, NY 11520. For more information please visit www.perfectingfaith.org.
Rev. Sharpton, the Baptist Minister and social justice activist who heads the National Action Network, explained the reason for the march that will take place in the nation’s capitol Saturday.
“On Saturday, Dec. 13, thousands will join the families of Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Akai Gurley and Michael Brown as they and National Action Network and other civil-rights organizations gather in Washington, D.C., for a march against police violence. Right now the nation is engaged in a thorough conversation about race, policing and healing,” Sharpton wrote in his Huffington Post blog. “While this dialogue is necessary and long overdue, we need more than just talk; we need legislative action that will shift things both on the books and in the streets.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
