I think more than enough commentary is going on about this issue… but here’s what it comes down to for me (BTW, it’s all 5-10 min from my house)…
God is still on His throne. We need to seek His face in this situation. Pray for revival to come and for souls to be set free. This can only come from Jesus and by the power of His name and blood, and from the saints getting on their needs and crying out for His will to be done.
“Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city… Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” Jeremiah 29:7.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27.
From Family Force Five’s Let it be Love:
“I’ve never seen a soul set free
Through an argument
I’ve never seen a hurt get healed
In a protest…
It’s not about the stand we take
But the grace we give”
And from one of my favorite artists, Chris Tomlin, here’s a video of God of this City
