Evangelist Alveda King with Post Election Prayers for the Holidays

Dr. Alveda King : Nov 23, 2016  The Elijah List

"...during this 2016 winter holiday season, let those of us who will, agree that for Thanksgiving, we will carve the turkey and not each other with our words. Then in repentance and Agape Love, for Christmas, let us celebrate the birth and Gospel of Jesus Christ—the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world."

FOUNDING EDITOR'S NOTE:

Happy Thanksgiving to our dear Breaking Christian News readers!
Perhaps, the wisest woman I know (and it's a pleasure to call her my friend) is the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

You've seen her many times on Fox News, Fox and Friends and many other places.

Watch for a notice in a couple weeks as we are publishing Dr. Alveda King's newest book, "America Return to God."

Wow, are we privileged.

Read this amazing exhortation to the Body of Christ. Here is a quote from the Word below:

Dr. Alveda King:

America has elected a new president, Mr. Donald Trump. He needs our prayers, not our vitriol. The fussing and fuming is hurting our fragile relationships in our homes, our churches and in the marketplace.

Throughout the 2016 debates and elections, many, including "yours truly" have reminded America that with prayer, we can do as my Uncle MLK often said: "We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish as fools."

Let's do what Dr. Martin Luther King suggests so we don't "Perish as fools!"

From our family to yours ... Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at BCN and the Elijah List.

Bless you all!

"Evangelist Alveda King with Post Election Prayers for the Holidays"

"Stay on good terms with each other, held together by [Agape] love." Hebrews 13:1 (MSG)

The 2016 Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are at our doors. Yet, so many Americans are still reeling with post-election shock. Several weeks ago, I realized that if God didn't touch our hearts with healing, during the holidays many of us would have miserable times around the "family and friend" tables of America. (Photo: Dr. Alveda King)

So I rolled up my sleeves and got on my knees, so to speak, and began to pray for America. Then I designed a holiday meme (below) and began writing this message.

Somehow, America has elected a new president, Mr. Donald Trump. He needs our prayers, not our vitriol. The fussing and fuming is hurting our fragile relationships in our homes, our churches and in the marketplace. (Meme by Alveda King)

Throughout the 2016 debates and elections, many, including "yours truly" have reminded America that with prayer, we can do as my Uncle MLK often said: "We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters] or perish as fools."

My Uncle MLK, Daddy Rev. A. D. King and Grandfather Daddy King often taught from Acts 17:26: "Of one blood, God made the human family to live together on the earth."

So we are not separate races, from womb to tomb, we are one blood, designed by our Creator to live together on the earth.

Honestly this has been a very difficult season for me; testing my faith and my love for God's human family.

From the onset of my publicly acknowledged support for the 2016 candidacy of first, Dr. Ben Carson, and then Mr. Donald Trump, I have received so much angst that if it hadn't been for God's mercy and forgiveness in my heart, for myself and for my loved ones—friends, family, church members and others—I would have fallen into sin by either striking back at those who don't agree with me or at least trying to defend my position.

Never mind that during the elections I wrote many blogs and participated in many interviews explaining that in accord with Proverbs 3:5 and 1 Timothy 2:2—we Americans must trust God and not the human candidates to rescue America from this present state of disharmony. People still continued to flay each other with words, and in some cases as with the violent protesters, with physical acts of anger.

Yet God continues to shine through our 2 Chronicles 7:14 prayers, and we must continue to pray and trust that even in the midst of the Book of Revelation Days, God has not abandoned us. (Photo: King Family Legacy/Thanksgiving 1963)

In closing, during this 2016 winter holiday season, let those of us who will, agree that for Thanksgiving, we will carve the turkey and not each other with our words.

Then in repentance and Agape Love, for Christmas, let us celebrate the birth and Gospel of Jesus Christ—the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.

Let Agape Love prevail.
