30 Days of Prayer for CMPD
This is the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s 3rd year seeking the prayers of our faith community. Last year, 2020, brought increasing violence, world-wide pandemic, civil unrest, and a contentious election to the forefront of our lives. It also introduced new ways to imagine policing and new ways in which to involve community organizations and members in addressing public safety so that all residents feel safe. We are in this together as never before.
Friendship Missionary Baptist Church and other congregations from across the greater Charlotte community are praying for 30 days in a row for the CMPD, other public safety officials, and our great city.
The vision for our day includes prayer for:
▪Members of the CMPD, their safety and integrity, physical and mental health, andfor compassion and empathy as they serve our community and for our families;
▪Other public, health, and safety officials, for their strength and perseverance andfor wisdom to guide their decisions as they serve our community and for theirfamilies;
▪Our community, that all people, whether black or brown, male or female, policeofficer or protester, gay or straight, Christian or Muslim, be recognized as createdin the image of God; and,
▪Our community, as we look more deeply into the causes of unrest,homelessness, and injustices exposed by the pandemic and work together torespond in acts of loving kindness and in tangible ways that make a difference.
