Montgomery Pastor sends out an SOS

A Montgomery pastor sends out an S.O.S.  The Reverend Paul Gourdine wants the city to turn to prayer in an effort to save our schools.  Reverend Gourdine of Dexter Avenue United Methodist Church is asking people to come to his church for a prayer vigil.

He wants folks to give one hour of their time Monday, March 16th at 6:00 p.m. to pray specifically for five areas. Pray that resources are sent to the city that enables it to not downsize education staff in the school system.  Pray that the teachers would be protected and motivated in the classrooms.  Pray that the teacher's motivation would be so contagious that the students catch it.  Pray that the students minds be centered on learning and share in the two way communication experience.  Pray that the administrators work with the teachers to develop new and creative ways to impact change in the school.  Pray that the superintendent, board of education, teachers and parents work together to stop students from dropping out of school.

"Our schools are under attack. Graduation rates are too low, violence in our homes and in the community are spilling into schools, and we have to come together to save our schools. Our children are the hope for tomorrow and the dreams of yesterday standing here today," Gourdine said. "It is our responsibility as parents, community leaders, pastors, educators, advocates, mentors, and caregivers of tomorrow's future to act now - today. The Bible says the weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds."
