Forgiveness and Healing

Forgiveness is the first step to healing. Unfortunately, many African Americans and Alaska Natives have harbored bitterness for a long time due to the trauma inflicted on them by racism.

Prayer for Racial Reconciliation and Healing

We need divine intervention to stop racism. Racism is a sin of the heart that needs to be rooted out supernaturally. We need God's help to change our mindset across racial lines. We need healing from the trauma of racism. We need God in our communities.
