"Standing United Together . . . Under the Cross of Christ"

Tonight We Pray

Dear Friends,

This weekend, our nation has been traumatized by two mass shootings, one in
El Paso, followed the same day by one in Dayton.

Tonight, we grieve for our nation, and we grieve for the families who have been directly impacted by these tragedies.
Truly, it is written: "There is . . . a time to mourn . . ." (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4)
In this Special Edition of the Daily Brief, we will leave it to the mainstream media to report the many, horrible details of both events. Instead, we turn to our Lord, asking comfort in this time of sorrow, and sharing our own thoughts and prayers with you as intercessors for our nation.
We trust you will be blessed and strengthened as you read the reports that will follow, for truly . . we are . . . ONE NATION UNDER GOD.
Thank you.

DAYTON, Ohio - Hundreds sang, prayed, locked arms, held hands and shed tears together Sunday afternoon in a downtown park.

The vigil, organized by Simple Street Ministry Joel Burton with other Dayton faith representatives lasted more than an hour at Levitt Pavilion several blocks away from the scene of the mass shooting. A gunman killed nine people and injured 26 others early Sunday morning in the city's Oregon District entertainment area. Burton said Love got Dayton got through deadly tornados and a KKK rally earlier this year.

Love is the way to overcome the events such as Sunday morning's mass shooting in the Oregon District entertainment area too, he said.

People linked arms and held hands as a man played a solo trombone on stage. There was a moment of silence broken only by the sounds of a few people sobbing. . . (Read more)

A prayer request from El Paso

A prayer request from El Paso

Editor's note,

Late last night, we received a letter from a pastor in El Paso, sharing her burden with us and asking prayer for several specific prayer points.

We ask you now to please honor her words, and to also add the families and victims in Dayton, Ohio, who also need our prayer covering at this time.

Thank you and God bless you all,

Please Pray for El Paso

My name is Pam Faraone. My husband, Sam and I have lived in El Paso, Texas for 35 years. Sam has been a city chaplain for 27 years, serving the Police Department, Fire Department, and Fire Medical Services. We have both served the DEA as chaplains, and I supported both the Texas and Southwestern Border Sheriff's Coalitions for 5 years, was appointed to the National Sheriff's Association Chaplain Committee, facilitated the Border Sheriff's Posse Prayer Network and founded Border School. For many years I have attended the monthly Law Enforcement breakfast for the leaders of the Law Enforcement community both in El Paso and on Fort Bliss, and currently give the invocation at the breakfasts. As I write this, my husband is at the reunification center waiting with families to learn the fate of their loved ones.

These prayer requests come in the wake of the horrific shooting at an El Paso Walmart on Saturday morning, August 3.

Our first reports were of a shooting at Cielo Vista Mall and a shooting at the Walmart next door, which is on the same property. There was also a report of a shooter a little further down Interstate 10, at Costco. When the dust settled, the actual incident took place at Walmart, and it was horrific. It will take a long time to heal.

One of the special things about El Paso is that the Law Enforcement community is well known for being one of the most unified in the nation, with federal, state, county and local agencies working extremely well together. When the heads of federal agencies rotate into El Paso, without exception they are amazed at the cohesiveness of the Law Enforcement community.

Please join us in praying that . . .

1) those 26 hospitalized in serious and critical condition will live and not die
2) the families of the 20 confirmed lost (5 children) will be comforted and supported
3) the churches of El Paso will be unified and favored to minister the healing grace of Jesus
4) the community will know exactly how to rally around and support Law Enforcement
5) the community of El Paso will be united and experience healing
6) attempts by anyone to politicize this tragedy will be thwarted
7) the fruit of this evil incident will break people's hearts and draw them to the Lord, bringing an awakening that will affect the nation

With MUCH gratitude for each one who stands with El Paso as we heal.

About CHPP

About Capitol Hill Prayer Partners

Our Mission Statement

Capitol Hill Prayer Partners (CHPP) is a ministry which is positioned on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., helping members of the Body of Christ to "pray for those in authority over us" in our federal government. Our primary purpose is to offer intercession on site for the members of Congress and their staffs each day that the Senate and the House of Representatives are in session; and our chief prayer focus is that "God's will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." [Matthew 6:10].

Because Jesus Christ has shed His blood for all, we, too, pray for ALL, in a nonpartisan manner. Also, because the scriptures indicate that "the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" (James 4:17), we are confident that fervent prayer, offered in the halls of the highest chambers of government in our land, can avail much for America. Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes those who feel called to join us, engaging in this strategic work of intercession for our nation: "For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God." [Romans 13:1]


Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes all who wish to pray for our leaders to join us in prayer for our nation. You may sign up to receive our alerts by sending an email to us at requesting that your name be added to our list of subscribers.
