Jesus Teaches About Prayer

Updated: Jun 12

#PrayerChangesThings Matthew 6:5-15



June 12, 2023 #ThePentecostProject, Maseru, Lesotho -- A Higher Court is bending the long arc of the moral universe closer to #KingdomFellowship. Trustees for the historic Free African Society (FAS2) petitioned the Judicial Council of the African Methodist Episcopal Church for a decision today, believing, “The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.” The petitioner, on behalf of Generation Alpha heirs, envision a Judiciary that, “functions most efficiently in the administration and dispensation of Justice.”

GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER at #MyFathersHouse? -- The Reverend Floyd W. Alexander, Sr. "Preached" his own eulogy in celebrating "The Dash" of our father, The Reverend James Milton Stradford. A U.S. Marine veteran once asked his pastor, "Who is in charge of the African Methodist Episcopal Church?" The former #IamAME General Officer counseled his trustee in a parable, "When you find out, a lot of folk need to know." Our next interaction with an #IamAME General Officer echoed "Big Mother's" perspective on reality. It came through The 20th Editor of The Christian Recorder, Dr. Calvin H. Sydnor, III, U.S. Army, Retired -- #PrayerChangesThings.

Trustees are on track to achieve #NoPoverty2030, the first of 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Remnant factions of the historic Free African Society are calling on the Judiciary to make #BlackLivesMatter a rule of law. In civil court, any threat to the economic security of Generation Alpha believers is a threat to the Kingdom’s national security. In a more perfect union, the court, the legislature and executive branches must agree. History reveals evidence of models that have fallen short in the administration and dispensation of justice for all.

The Mother Ship is scouting Lesotho and other nations on the African continent in anticipation of a safe, sustainable landing. The development of Holy Trinity African Methodist Episcopal Church offers one shovel-ready model for “making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

Faith leaders see “no shortage of natural resources here.” The Right Reverend Francine Brookins, 141st elected, consecrated bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, inspires leadership across generational and geographic barriers. Leadership development. Her 10-year Capacity Building plan centers on family trust in a global model for sustainable change.

The #TumeloFamily trust model budgets $100 million USD for investment in the future. Generation Alpha includes believers born after 2010. On Pentecost Sunday, June 9, 2030, this generation is the ground crew for an anticipated safe landing.

Trustees are connecting with family members around the world, sponsoring virtual tours to places like historic Mother Bethel A.M.E. Church, Philadelphia, PA. They will be praying and paying close attention to the carpet on the floor. That carpet, said Bishop Jeffery N. Leath, Ecumenical Officer for the A.M.E. Church, “is a custom reproduction for the circa 1888 sanctuary floor. It’s design, a geometric repeat in six colors, including a rich red background, remains there today. Digital remnants offer evidence of stolen people, bound by faith and encouraged through prayer.

The property at 6th and Lombard is the oldest parcel of real estate in North America continuously owned by Free Africans. Richard Allen, co-founder of FAS, is said to have purchased the land between 1787 and 1794. He is believed to have have worked as a chimney sweep, contracted to work at the residence of George Washington, the first American president. Its first building was a frame structure originally used as a blacksmith's shop, which was hauled to the site.

This building was later replaced by frame structures in 1805 and 1841. The 1841 church was reported to have a tunnel connecting it with a nearby Quaker meetinghouse to facilitate the movements of fugitive slaves.

KEA LUMELA, the 2023 fair market value, calculated in Stolen Peoples’ Equity, compounded by 400 years interest, arguably exceeds the U.S. National Debt by an estimated $100 trillion USD.

Jesus taught, 5 “When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites. They love to stand in the synagogues and on the street corners and pray loudly. They want people to see them pray. I tell you the truth. They already have their full reward. 6 When you pray, you should go into your room and close the door. Then pray to your Father who cannot be seen. Your Father can see what is done in secret, and he will reward you. 7 “And when you pray, don’t be like those people who don’t know God. They continue saying things that mean nothing. They think that God will hear them because of the many things they say. 8 Don’t be like them. Your Father knows the things you need before you ask him. 9 So when you pray, you should pray like this:

‘Our Father in heaven, we pray that your name will always be kept holy.

10 We pray that your kingdom will come. We pray that what you want will be done, here on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us the food we need for each day.

12 Forgive the sins we have done, just as we have forgiven those who did wrong to us. 13 And do not cause us to be tested; but save us from the Evil One.’ The kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours forever. Amen.

14 Yes, if you forgive others for the things they do wrong, then your Father in heaven will also forgive you for the things you do wrong. 15 But if you don’t forgive the wrongs of others, then your Father in heaven will not forgive the wrong things you do.
