Christians from across America have converged on Charlotte, North Carolina – ministering to local residents impacted by the riots and unrest.
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, headquartered in Charlotte, is leading the way. They’ve deployed Rapid Response Teams with chaplains and other personnel to minister in the hot zones.
Franklin Graham asked a very important question: Haven’t people learned by now that violence doesn’t accomplish any good for anyone?
“What does work is prayer,” he said in a Facebook posting. “And I encourage individuals, pastors, and churches of all denominations across the city of Charlotte, the state and across the country to pray. Our nation is in trouble not just politically and economically – it’s in trouble racially, and only God can fix it.”
Watch this video from the BGEA:

It’s a reminder that our law enforcement officers are good and decent people. They truly want to protect us and serve us.
So don’t buy into the narrative that the Mainstream Media and the liberals and the professional race agitators are trying to advance.
This photograph shows North Carolina State Troopers having a word of prayer before being deployed on the streets of Charlotte.
“Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they work to protect us and help the city rebuild,” read a message from the NC Troopers Association.
Consider this message from North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory:
