We know that in Christ and through the power of His love and life we can see the walls of bigotry, racism and injustice come crumbling down and the healing process begin." - Rev. Patrick Mahoney

(Sanford, FL)—The Prayer Meeting will be broadcast live to the nation through the internet using Ustream and Facebook.

There will be also be a "Foot-washing Service" as part of the Prayer Meeting in which members of different races will wash each other's feet as a sign of humility, forgiveness and healing.

Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition in Washington D.C. and one of the organizers, states;
"Over the past several weeks, our nation has been riveted and divided over the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. This tragic death has opened up old wounds of racial injustice, bigotry and anger. It has also reminded us that race is still a major issue in America.

"Sadly, the loss of this young man's life has been turned into a political issue fanning the flames of hatred, bitterness, division and finger pointing.

"As people of faith, we believe it is important for our nation to come together for prayer and reconciliation. We know that in Christ and through the power of His love and life we can see the walls of bigotry, racism and injustice come crumbling down and the healing process begin.

"Our event in Sanford, Florida is not a protest or demonstration. Rather, it is a public witness that prayer and humility before each other and our God can end racial divisions in America."

Corry Robinson, Worship Pastor from Orlando Florida, adds, "There is a great need in our culture for true justice. Blind justice. Until the Church learns to celebrate-rather than tolerate-our ethnic diversity, there can be no true justice in the world, of which we are called to be salt and light."
