I received a txt saying “We are having a prayer & fasting meeting next week in my church to pray for peace in the DR Congo & in Africa, & I’d be glad if you can make it since you’re so concerned about the continent. What do you think?”.
I had tears in my eyes, & I asked myself if she was aware that in the Eastern part of the DR Congo the majority of our sister, mother, father & brother are Christians? She doesn’t think they prayed to come out alive from that mess?
Unfortunately she asked me what I thought of it… “Waste of time! If you want peace you prepare for war, but if you don’t want war… Remove the word peace from your vocabulary”.
It’s not prayers that keeps the Palestinians alive. It’s individuals on different levels of life dedicated their time some to inform people about what’s going on & they put the information right in your face, some organize & put money together then use the power of economic to try to influence things in certain ways, some physically go on the ground & try to help there ect… People on many level.
In the 60s it’s not prayers that helped African countries to gain independence it was all sorts of struggle throughout the continent political struggle, wars struggle, art struggle, life struggle all sorts of struggle were touched just for freedom & a freedom which the majority of those who stood up for it, haven’t even tasted the fruits of their work Patrice Lumumba, Steve Biko, Amílcar Cabral, Dedan Kimathi, Marcus Garvey, Sekou Touré, Thomas Sankara, Kwame Nkrumah, Kwame Toure, & many more… They had a vision, they stood up right, sensibilize the people, organized then centralized… In fact if it was just for prayers we’ll still be in chains"
I think the biggest turn on is knowing you turned someone else on.
