As disciples of Jesus, we know that any form of racism is grievous to the heart of God who has made each person in His image. We also know that without the gospel, there is no hope for peace, and it is only in Christ Jesus where dividing walls between people are truly brought down.
Please select one or two meals for your fast. If you can’t fast from food, select something of great importance to lay down for the day. When you pray, focus on these three areas:
We must begin by humbly laying ourselves before God that He might search us. We will only be impactful in the world around us if we are first willing to let God's Spirit have His way in us. Take time and pray through Psalm 139 and ask God to align your heart and mind with His.
We are called to stand with and alongside those who are hurting and broken. Even though someone may be experiencing a completely different set of circumstances, we are still called to empathize with their pain and stand with them. Pray through Romans 12:14-19 and bring the pain of others before God in prayer.
Jesus specifically teaches His disciples to pray for God's kingdom to come and God's will to be done. As followers of Christ, we know that His kingdom has come in Jesus and will continue to break through until the day where God brings about total restoration. In that day there will be people of all nations and tongues worshipping Jesus. Pray through Revelation 7:9, Revelation 21, and Revelation 22 and pray for the return of Jesus and for His perfect and righteous reign.
