I went back to my office. I sat down. Then people came running into my office asking me what did I do to her. I said nothing. I said I would pray for her to change her wicked ways. They said the woman was admitted into the emergency room screaming and seizuring.
That made me think. I got really scared. Up until this point I never saw a direct correlation between silent protest for justice, and the power of prayer. I was humbled by it.
From that day forward I promised to watch my words.
And to be careful about my prayers, God listens.
I knew that God sees me, hears me and does take action when it comes to me.
I know he does that for me and he does that and more for you.
Today, I am more mature in my walk as a Christian. I wouldn't walk up to someone and tell them I am praying for them. I would just pray silently for God to intervene in the situation,take away my anger and for the best outcome to happen. And then I show up, without stress, worry or concern and let God handle the rest.
People have seen other people yell and scream at me and me not raise my voice. React. I hear them out. Then I patiently respond and remain professional. People ask me don't I feel weak? Don't I get angry? Don't I want to punch the person in the face? And I say to them, I am not in charge of this situation, God is. God has never failed me and he will avenge me in this situation. And you will see it. And sure as my legal maiden name is Charmaine Day justice comes to pass.
So if you find yourself in the midst of a situation where someone is attacking you, don't think that there isn't power in prayer. Your prayer is the most powerful weapon that you can evoke. Its power reaches beyond this situation and sometimes generations in terms of outcomes. You are not a victim but victorious.
On another note of silent protest, I am boycotting the NFL by not watching any football games or sports commentary on football because the NFL owners have not hired Colin Kaepernick because of his silent protest against police brutality and racism. I realized that right now I am witnessing a man who took a righteous stand be persecuted as a result. That's not right. I will continue to boycott until Colin Kaepernick is gainfully employed as a quarterback in the NFL.
I am praying for Colin's protest against police brutality and racism to bring changes in America.
Colin Kaepernick is our generations Muhammad Ali.
There is power in prayer.
There is power in silent protest.
