Louisiana State Representative and Monroe Minister to Host Community Fast and Prayer Event to Address Violence | KTVE
MONROE, The. (KTVE/KARD) – A state official called on people to unite in the face of communal violence by hosting a community fast and prayer event. According to District 17 Louisiana State Representative Pat Moore, on October 30, 2021, elected officials, community leaders, faith leaders, and others gathered at Richwood High School to address community violence.
The community fasting and prayer event is scheduled for Monday, May 2, 2022, on the steps of the Courthouse of the Parish of Ouachita from 5:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information contact Minister Marion Obafemi at (318)-418-9162 or representing Pat Moore at (318)-235-3508.
Moore said those in attendance not only talked about doing more to fix this problem, but they pledged to do more to fix the problem.
“We believed God had heard our cry,” Moore said. “I support this fast and truly believe that we need to come together as a community and ask God to help us with violence and other issues in our community. We want God’s will to be done and we want God to guide us as we move forward to solve the problems of our community. We admit that we cannot solve these problems, but God can.
I am grateful to God for placing this prompt request from the community in the heart of Minister Marion Obafemi. Minister Marion Obafemi works daily with our most vulnerable population who have made bad decisions in their lives and now have to live with the consequences of those bad decisions. This weighs heavily on Minister Marion Obafemi’s heart and I am happy to be able to support the fast and his program which he will implement later. I am committed to praying and fasting, and I pray that others will do the same.
