P. White: Address to Rally of Hope I

Address to Rally of Hope I
August 9, 2020


Thank you for the privilege of sharing with you today at this amazing Rally of Hope. I am honored to stand before such distinguished men and women. A special thank you to my dear friends, Dr. Michael, and Minister Reiko Jenkins.

There is one word that has great meaning for us all; that is the word “family.” Family is the root of everything we are. Family is what binds us together and family is the cornerstone of world peace.

There is one individual who understands and exemplifies true family, and that is Mother Moon. Her devotion, love, extraordinary compassion, and tireless efforts to create models for good governance and strengthening interfaith dialogue have earned her the affectionate title, “Mother of Peace.”

Mother Moon, I respect and honor you for your perseverance, for being a forerunner nationally and globally, for dedicating your life to establishing international peace and goodwill and for being a true lover of humanity. You have demonstrated that working with all people, no matter the color, creed, age, social class or background, is necessary and possible if all people adopt in their hearts the love for all people based on living for the sake of others as you do. Thank you.

These trying times

You know, God is the author of peace. True peace cannot exist without him. His word promises us that he will keep us in perfect peace if we keep our focus on him. We, as the family of God, the church, are called to bring healing to the nations, especially during difficult times. We are positioned to be used as we are walking in “his peace and confidence” as his leaders.

Our current world situation with Covid-19 is a great trial, but if we turn to God we will overcome and prosper. It is vital that we are respectful and cooperate among all nations. This is crucial. The Holy Spirit teaches how to respectfully come in the power of cooperation and agreement to harmonize together to make a symphony about all that we face as humans in our individual nations. May we bear with one another, and make allowances out of love, which comes from you, God. We are eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness produced by the Holy Spirit in the binding power of peace. May we commit according to the power of God that works in us to unite in spirit, sympathizing with one another, loving each other as brethren, as family—compassionate and courteous, tender-hearted, and humble-minded.

Thankfully, those are key to bring heavenly wisdom and insights to the heads of states and elected officials. May your spirit rest upon your men and women of God, filling them with wisdom and understanding. The spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge to be as the tribe of Issachar which told Israel what to do, having an understanding of the times.

We become peacemakers by being in harmony with the Lord. Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers... for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Jesus is our peace. We are accountable to God and each other as members of his household.

God, bring your people together and forgive us for any intolerance for one another. Lord Jesus came and preached peace to us outsiders and peace to us insiders. He treated us as equals and so made us equals. Through him we share the same spirit and have equal access to You, Father.

Second Chronicles 7:14 reminds us: “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sins and will heal their land.”

Could we be in a time of anointed release of the church to see the ancient wounds of God’s house rebuilt and the ruined cities, the desolation of many generations repaired? Well, I believe that God is at work. And so I pray right now for the reunification of South Korea and North Korea and pray that you move mightily, I pray that you release a miracle, God. And I pray over America, protected as a nation, that all nations will be blessed to achieve peace through cooperation. For your word declares: “Blessed is the nation who calls God Lord.” So right now, I thank you that there is a supernatural move of peace and also that you will protect all people from the coronavirus. For God, we can be certain in uncertain times, because you are Lord.
