Our prayers are with South Carolina
The American Renewal Project hosted in Charleston, SC, The Response: A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis, this past Saturday. The Response is calling the church of Jesus Christ to come together in unity for healing in our nation.
We are deeply grieved at the loss of nine brothers and sisters senselessly murdered last night at a Bible study and prayer meeting at Emanuel AME Church. It’s pastor, Clementa Pinckney, is the only name released of the deceased at this writing.
God’s Word speaks, Psalm 9:12, “For He who avenges murder cares for the helpless. He does not ignore the cries of those who suffer.”
Our heartfelt sympathy to the families of the deceased, we are praying for their families in their time of grief.

Return to Charleston, to pray . .
Tonight at dinner, I was asked by a fellow diner from Kansas what I was doing in Charleston. I explained that less than a week ago I was in town for The ResponseUSA held at the North Charleston Coliseum on Saturday, June 13th. Four days after thousands gathered to pray for a nation in crisis several local pastors were shot down during their Wednesday night prayer meeting in their own church in this city. I told her we were sent by The American Renewal Project team to comfort and pray for the pastors and people of Charleston. She said, “So you are like Emergency Responders.” I thought. She is so right. . . . . .
