Staff from Southeast Christian Church met on the corner of 6th and Jefferson streets to pray Tuesday, June 2, at 8:30 a.m.
Senior Pastor Kyle Idleman prayed for the peace, truth and justice of God to reign over communities.
“God, I just pray that you would bring peace to our city, but that it wouldn’t be a cheap peace,” Idleman said. “It wouldn’t be a peace that is pseudo or settles for everyone pretending like things are OK when they’re not. We pray for true peace and oneness—true brotherhood and sisterhood. Lord, as we pray together for our city, would You break our heart for what breaks Yours? Would You help us to see people through Your eyes? And God, I pray that as a church, we would model that. We have an opportunity to model that in a way like we never have before: To be able to stand alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ and to be able to say that our greatest identity is who we are in you. That matters more than anything.”
The prayer gathering Tuesday is part of Southeast’s Prayer on the Move initiative. All are encouraged to take some time in the coming weeks to participate in prayer walks in neighborhoods around the area.
Join in with friends and family, plan a time and place for a walk and pray what God has laid on your heart. Southeast will be praying through 1 Peter 3 as a church.
