"The world seems to have forgotten what Martin Luther King, Jr. knew; we need God's help," said Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Maritn Luther King Jr. "Pray for President Trump, America, and the World. We must return to God."
Alveda King commented on the performance by well-known country music stars Reba McEntire and Lauren Daigle, who sang 'Back to God' at the 2017 American Country Music Awards. According to a press release, King agrees that "as people of One Blood, we must repent, Pray and Unite. 'Back to God' was just the right direction for the times," she said.
"Today, April 4, 2017 marks the 49th Anniversary of the death of my uncle. It is fitting therefore to call for the initial 'A Time of Love and Reconciliation' which is being read by talk radio hosts of all political leanings drawing attention to H.R. 194 (110th), a resolution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on July 29, 2008 that 'apologize[d] to African Americans on behalf of the people of the United States, for the wrongs committed against them and their ancestors who suffered under slavery and Jim Crow' and 'express[ed] its commitment to rectify the lingering consequences of the misdeeds committed against African Americans under slavery and Jim Crow and to stop the occurrence of human rights violations in the future.'
"It's an appropriate tribute to MLK's 49th anniversary of his life and legacy. If he were here today, I believe he would agree with Ted Hays, leader of Heal America Collaborative, Reba and Lauren, and yes, me, and prayerfully lead people everywhere to return to God," urges King.
