Prayer Roundtable: Racial Reconciliation

Jun 05, 2020

On June 1, 2020, Pastor Gregg Matte and our three Campus Pastors hosted an online Night of Prayer for The Nation. The date fell in the middle of a season of unrest and anxiety in our nation following the brutal death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers in Minneapolis.

As the nation, the church, and individuals grapple with why and how this and other senseless deaths can happen, Pastor Gregg, Jason, Malcolm, and Lee call upon the Lord for wisdom and healing. Listen to their individual contributions below, or view the entire discussion here. In addition, a curated list of related resources is provided for your reference.

As always, you can share your prayer requests with Houston's First here, by texting PRAYFIRST to 41411, or by calling 713.335.6456.

The Bible is the definitive source for how we are to relate to one another — and how His followers are to model that for the world around us. This list of resources provides additional thoughts and insights from a variety of other sources. Some sources might open your eyes to another person’s point of view, and some might cause you to reflect on your own. As with anything, examine each one through the lens of what God says in His Word.
