GATHER TO PRAY ON MLK DAY

JANUARY 18TH

Join us as we stand together in unity to recognize Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and form a multi-ethnic prayer gathering to honor King’s vision for the Beloved Community. 

“But the end is reconciliation; the end is redemption; the end is the creation of the beloved community. It is this type of spirit and this type of love that can transform opposers into friends. It is this type of understanding goodwill that will transform the deep gloom of the old age into the exuberant gladness of the new age. It is this love which will bring about miracles in the hearts of men.”

– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. –

WHY PRAY ON MLK DAY?

Our cities are divided by streets that have chained us to inequity, created walls of division, and borders of fear that keep us apart.

It’s time for faith communities to take a stand and turn every place of pain, into a place of prayer. It’s time to make our voices heard in heaven, and to publicly demonstrate the transforming power of God on the earth.


What is Pray on MLK?

Pray on MLK ( PrayOnMLK.org ) is One voice united in prayer-fueled, hope filled action. We believe Jesus Christ is the answer to the complex cultural challenges that exist within the U.S. and across the globe. In this national moment of “racial reckoning”, the Body of Christ must put feet to our faith by leading the nation in truth and reconciliation. To that end, we are seizing the federal Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday as an opportunity for the Church to take a united step forward through corporate prayer, worship, and public action. As we enter 2021, we are covenanting to usher in a new era of righteousness and justice in united pursuit of God’s dream for all people. As people of faith take their place on the walls of history through the simplicity of the Gospel, we hear the chains of iniquity breaking.

FAQ

How does COVID-19 affect the event?

Please do not attend if you are feeling sick or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. Follow social distancing guidelines by keeping a distance of at least 6 feet, wear your mask or face-covering at all times, and use hand sanitizer before you come and when you leave.

Why are people wearing masks or tape with handwriting over their mouths?

While our voices are silent in the protest, our prayers are still being heard in heaven. In Isaiah 6, the prophet beholds the Lord of glory and realizes that he is a man of unclean lips and he lives among a people of unclean lips. The white tape symbolizes God’s purification of our lips and our hearts. The tape also allows us to protest in solidarity with those whose voices have been silenced due to acts of injustice
