"Behind every black cloud of crime there is a Silver Lining of Hope through prayer";

"Behind every black cloud of crime, there is a silver lining of hope"
Pastor Bell is requesting that we include the dismissal of violent crimes as a prayer request priority. This violence is ripping our families and communities apart. We must ask God to fix it. The violence has to stop. This prayer request will be included in our 11:00 am Sunday Morning Worship Altar Call and our Wednesday Night Prayer/ Bible Study and should be included in your daily prayers. This is not a selfish act, but a divine step to harmonize all people.
Silver Lining of Hope is asking all supporters to wear a black ribbon which is lined with a silver ribbon. The symbolism of the ribbons represents the black cloud of crime that has invaded our homes, neighborhoods, communities, cities, states and our country AND the silver lining of hope which encompasses faith and the belief that God will intervene.
Reference scripture: II Chronicles 7:14
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Pastor Bell recalls that it came to him in a vision that the symbol of the crusade should be a black and silver ribbon.
