"We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools,"
The niece of civil rights hero Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a message of peace and compassion after a white nationalist rally turned violent Saturday, leaving the nation reeling.
"I was blown up by the Ku Klux Klan in our home, but we knew that the goal was to transform the laws and transform the human hearts towards compassion," Dr. Alveda King told "Fox & Friends" on Sunday.
"Racism is sin. Hatred is sin," the pro-life activist stated, adding that she is a serious Christian.
"We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools," King said, quoting her uncle Martin Luther King. "I have decided to stick with love. Hate is to great a burden to bear."
President Trump received criticism for not naming the rioters as white supremacists when he condemned them yesterday, but King said the main thing is to speak to everyone about ending the violence.
"We've got to stop the violence," she said. "The president is right about that."
While removing confederate memorabilia does not immediately solve the problem of racism in America, it belongs in museums and in its proper context, King said.
The following is a word from highly esteemed POTUS SHIELD council prelate, Alveda King.
I've often been asked to share the King Family Legacy's approach to nonviolent conflict resolution which is introduced here briefly:
SIX STEPS AND PRINCIPLES FOR NONVIOLENT SOCIAL CHANGE - A sequential journey to victory:
Principle 1: Nonviolence is not passive, but requires courage.
Principle 2: Nonviolence seeks reconciliation, not defeat of an adversary.
Principle 3: Nonviolent action is directed at eliminating evil, not destroying an evildoer.
Principle 4: A willingness to accept suffering for the cause, if necessary, but never to inflict it.
Principle 5: A rejection of hatred, animosity or violence of the spirit, as well as refusal to commit physical violence.
Principle 6: Faith that justice will prevail.
Understanding this, we apply the six steps of nonviolent conflict resolution:
(1.) Prayerfully enter into a process by conducting research and gathering information to get the facts straight;
(2.) Continuing in prayer, conduct education and awareness campaigns to inform adversaries and the public about the facts of the dispute;
(3.) Prayerfully commit yourself to live and manifest a nonviolent attitude and actions;
(4.) Prayerfully mediate and negotiate with adversary in a spirit of goodwill to correct injustice;
(5.) Prayerfully apply nonviolent direct action, such as prayer vigils, marches, boycotts, mass demonstrations, picketing, sit-ins etc., to help persuade or compel adversary to work toward dispute-resolution;
(6.) Prayerfully anticipate reconciliation among adversaries in a win-win outcome in establishing a sense of community which should now be achievable.
Considering the times, I am grateful to be a part of a biological family as well as a spiritual family who embrace these truths. Won't you join us?
1) North Korea--Let’s continue to cover the North Korean situation and, in the authority that has been given to us as intercessors, bind the evil spiritual powers behind Kim Jong Un and his cronies with “fetters of iron” (Ps. 149:8, Matt.18:18-19), asking the Lord to "bring down the wicked" as David prayed (Ps. 55:23), so that they are unable to cause the destruction to Guam, South Korea, Japan, the USA or any other nation that they intend. Pray that the Lord, the great Redeemer, will turn this perilous situation around for the good of the two Koreas that they may even become one again through this very crisis.
2) Iraq--As the prayer team is now beginning its work in Iraq, I just received this additional request for prayer from a pastor friend in Baghdad. (Shia and Sunni are the great divisions within Islam that are both found in Iraq and are behind so much of the conflict and deteriorating conditions there.)
“There is a huge tension building up rather quickly that may lead to conflicts around these points:
1. Differences among Shia divisions themselves.
2. Historic hate and revenge between the Sunni and Shia that started more than 1400 years ago and has never ceased.
3. Kurds plans for separation that may lead to confrontations with bitterness.
4. High percentage of unemployment and it is now too expensive to live, besides high rate of kidnapping cases, killings and organised theft.
Our church contractor was kidnapped 90 days ago and never released even with a ransom of $45,000 being paid for his life.
5. Rate of migration is still on, where Christian's presence has come down from 10% of the population to less than 1%.
However, in the midst of all of these concerns, the blessing is that there are enormous crowds of souls coming to the Lord on a weekly basis, thanks be to the Lord!”
Let’s thank the Lord for all those coming to Christ in Iraq and continue to pray for His healing and deliverance according to these specific above concerns. Pray for this dear pastor and the other believers in the midst of it all, and for the prayer team to be anointed, empowered, protected and used greatly as His instrument during the coming days there.
3) The North American Prayer Summit came into being shortly after the launch of the International Prayer Council in 2002 in South Africa. At that gathering, close to 300 prayer network leaders from around the world built enduring relationships and formed many regional prayer networks that have held subsequent prayer summits to pray for the nations of their regions. NAPS has since that time gathered prayer leaders and intercessors from Mexico, Canada and the USA every two to three years to pray over the spiritual and political issues of each nation and for our common concerns as a continent. This year, we will have presenters share on economic and political issues, the threat of Islamization, as well as what God is doing through transformational prayer efforts to bring breakthroughs, such as is happening in Juarez, Mexico. Through a movement of united prayer leading to joint action by the churches and the public authorities, Juarez has become one of Mexico's safest cities after being "the murder capital of the world".

We found this throwback to January at the Inauguration! It is interesting to see what has happened since then and what is on the line with our prayers! Keep praying POTUS SHIELD! We are making a difference and what many have said can't be done is being done! Never forget that what is prophesied needs to be soaked in prayer and watered by God's people! We are POTUS SHIELD!
Men and women from our council of prelates that are especially gifted to help discern and present spiritual plans to prepare the way for transformation, reformation, and revival in our nation.
