Prayer For The Good Life

by

Dr. Gale A. Ragan-Reid (August 17, 2014)

“Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men” (Psalms 12:1, King James Version [David craveth help of God]).

Greetings in the Holy Name Of Jesus,

My brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, living in a world of sin, “Where is the happy medium?” How long will you not do unto others as you do unto yourselves or love one another as Jesus loves you? How long will you not be your brother's keeper? How long will you deny the saving grace of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus? How long will you not love our LORD, God Almighty?

David to the chief musician upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David (12: 2-4, KJV) speaks, “They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: Who have said, with our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?”[David craveth help of God].

Howbeit, “13 percent of the United States of America's (USA) population---African-American's suffer a 50 percent homicide rate of which 90 percent of the homicides are committed by African-Americans on African-Americans known to us as black-on-black crimes” (Meet The Press, 2014)? LORD, save us from a sinful nation that practices hate---our own people! Howbeit, “100 African-Americans are killed by white police each year” (Meet The Press, 2014)?

LORD, save us from the white sinful nation that practices hate---of black people! It is not too far-fetched to think in the month of August in this year 2014, “How many black people have the white man killed this year, 2014, so far?” If, the number is 70 black people killed so far in the month of August by white police, then, that means the average of 100 black people killed each year, left 30 more black people to die at the hands of white police this year? LORD, how can we protect ourselves and our children? LORD, what about our own people killing at a rate of 50 percent, “How many have they killed this year, 2014, so far? If, the percentage of 50 percent of African-Americans killed by 90 percent of African-Americans is at 25 percent, then, that means the 50 percent homicides, left 25 more percent of black people to die at the hands of 90 percent of their own black people?

David in Psalms (12: 5-6, KJV) said, “For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times” [David craveth help of God]. There was an unarmed teen in a town named Ferguson, Missouri, which was incorporated 100 years ago. Yet, in the town of Ferguson the white men LORD as gods over the oppressed poor of which 63 percent are African-Americans but 93 percent of the arrests made in that town are of African-Americans---arrests made by a police force of 50 white police and only 3 black police, initially thought to be only 1 black policeman on the police force in that town so much so until when the riots that began over the killing of the unarmed teen slated to go to college in less than a week's time occurred the powers that be on a state level and national level decided to send in the highway patrol staying the perceived persecution that the local level police would inflict upon the neighbors that they oppress daily with false arrests and now the killing of the golden child---the child that made it out---the child that was accepted into college but the child did not get to make it out for he was killed by a police; his potential was snuffed out by the gun of a quiet policeman---the police of the year, supposedly mild-mannered with contained emotions nevertheless this same mild-mannered policeman almost emptied his weapon upon the golden child. Yes, the golden child is dead---a mother's child is dead---another mother's child is gone.
