Out of Our Seats & Into the Streets • Saturday, June 18th

As often is the case, our youth are leading the way!

More info on a Sidewalk Service in every neighborhood on that day is coming soon!

We’ll be looking for a take-the-lead church who will invite the other Christ-following congregations to partner together.

√out this notice from Pray Chicago Youth . . .

On Saturday June 18, Pray Chicago Youth Edition will “Take to the Streets” As the school year ends, the Youth shall lead the way in an atmospheric saturation of Prayer!!
We will first congregate at Greater Mt Hebron MB Church 8000 S Wood St our Host Church where Rev Dr EF Ledbetter-Pastor@11am…We will pray that the walk and words that will go forth might be found pleasing in the sight of the Lord. We will then depart the church and walk to Scott Joplin Elementary School (the school of the late Tyshawn Lee) at that point we will Pray for all of the school Children in Chicago as they enter Summer Vacation…. Leaving there we will walk to Palmer Park where we will Pray for the innocence of Youth, that they may stand strong against worldly temptations, and for those y who seek to protect them(teachers, counselors, parents, police, etc)… (in memory of this being the park where Tyshawn Lee was lured from, and his murderer had planned to massacre all the children playing there), after that we will walk to the alley (where Tyshawn Lee was killed) where we will pray for the souls of those youth that have been slain, an end to the spirit of anger, for the restoration of the Christian family unit, for a spirit of peace in the neighborhoods, in the hearts and minds of would be perpetrators, and an end to homicides, especially those involving youth… We will then, Have a victory March back to the church (proclaiming the Victory in Jesus’ name to all that we have asked on this day…. At the Church we will have final Prayer, fellowship, and dismissal….

Please notify all Youth Groups, Pastors, Organizations, and schools to join us and Proclaim the Victory in Jesus name.
