Prayer for Justice

June 28, 2020

3:00pm – 4:00pm

Category: Prayer Night | Coordinator: Amy Lathrop

As part of our commitment to partner with and learn from local leaders and pastors of color, the Doxa leadership and staff will be participating in a prayer event for racial justice at Bellevue Downtown Park. This event is open to the Doxa church family, the public, and all who want to learn, pray, and move toward informed-action.

This event is being led by Pradeepan Jeeva from Kalos Church (Doxa has supported Pradeepen and Kalos and Pradeepan has preached at Doxa) and Common Good. He is calling local churches together with this message: 

As our nation cries out against racial injustice, this is not the time for the Church to be silent. We are calling Christians to repent, turn to God, show practical support, and pray for Black lives. For all of us who want to support but aren't sure how, this is a great place to start. "Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?” Isaiah 58:6

Let’s pray in a way that leads to both personal and communal repentance and transformation. Now more than ever, we must allow this transformation to lead us into action in support of our Black brothers and sisters. Let’s come together to learn, pray, and take next steps to loosen and untie the personal and systemic chains of injustice in our hearts, our churches, and our city.
