God has given us the power to tread on serpents and scorpions! We are looking for those who want to “tread” around our city as we stake our claim against violence, drugs, alcoholism, divorce, murder, suicide and destruction. Before the snow begins to fall, we want to take advantage of the cooler weather and come together in unity to wage war against darkness. Those individuals who are interested in joining the prayer walk can contact Natasha N. Mackey at 1-855-622-5397. There will be a shuttle available for individuals who cannot walk, but who are willing to join with us in prayer. Date, time and place are to be announced. Everyone is invited to attend! We will be praying in the name of Jesus.
