Prayer Chain Day Happens Saturday In Downtown Flint
An amazing group of ministries will be coming together this Saturday at Flint's City Hall to pray for peace and healing for the city of Flint.
For as long as I can remember Flint has had a bad name. Before the whole water crisis issue Flint had a reputation for violence and crime. Not to mention one of the most economically depressed cities in the US, Flint has a lot of work to do to reverse the negative energy that clouds our city.
But with the assistance of these amazing ministries I think we are finally starting to realize that we have to put our best foot forward and combat the stigma with positivity. With over 100 ministries coming together this weekend to pray, it's showing everyone that we are capable of coming together.
Prayer Chain Day, started by Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell's late wife, Janet, will kick off with a prayer rally at Flint City Hall.
Between 100 and 150 ministries will be participating in the event. Pastor Scott Beck, of Bethesda Temple, on the city's south side, is overseeing the event.
"We have a planning meeting every month beginning in the spring to get everyone prepared for the event," Beck said. "I've been involved in organizing the event for the past six or seven years."
