I Prayed have prayed
Father, restore law and order in our nation, and put an end to the calls to defund law enforcement. Reform our policing, give our cops courage, Lord, and keep our streets safe.

These kind of crime spikes can go nationwide if we are not careful. We have to have law and order in our streets and neighborhoods.

From Fox News. Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., who has repeatedly called for defunding the police, has seen skyrocketing crime in the Northern Bronx part of his district….

Who is praying on the wall?

 

“A system this cruel and inhumane can’t be reformed. Defund the police, and defund the system that’s terrorizing our communities,” Bowman tweeted the month after his election on Dec. 29, 2020….

Since taking office, Bowman has seen violent crime on the rise in the Northern Bronx region of his 16th congressional district, which includes the Spuyten Duyvil, Woodlawn, Eastchester Heights, and Co-op City neighborhoods of the New York City borough.

According to the New York City Police Department’s crime map, Bowman’s district encompasses all or part of precincts 45, 47, and 50 in the Bronx. Every week, the NYPD publishes statistics regarding the seven major crime categories in each precinct, which includes murder, rape, robbery, felonious assault, burglary, grand larceny, and grand larceny auto.

Fox News Digital took the total number of violent crimes reported in those three precincts so far this year (3,396) and compared it to the total number last year (2,609), according to the NYPD’s Aug. 1-Aug. 8 report.

The analysis found that violent crime is up roughly 30% overall in the Northern Bronx compared to last year, with the biggest uptick occurring in Precinct 50 with a 74% increase. That precinct, which includes the neighborhoods of Spuyten Duyvil, Fieldston and Riverdale, also recorded a 123.5% increase in robberies and a 153% increase in grand larceny auto since last year….

“I stand with the movement demanding a real $1 billion cut to the NYPD and reallocating resources to public health and the social safety net. We don’t need to hire more police,” Bowman tweeted in July 2020. “Let’s keep building power and organizing to transform our communities.”

Despite repeatedly calling for the defunding of police and calling the system “cruel and inhumane,” Bowman requested police protection at his Yonkers home days after the Jan. 6 Capitol attack….

Praise God, praise God, we thank you Lord for your mighty power to be used to support the police. Make them invisible to the criminals so they will be caught. Protect them from the evil one so they can protect our nation and it’s constitution; so they can stop the bleeding at our borders; so they can make our cities safe again. I’m Jesus mighty name, Amen

RESPECT for marriage ACT———////// My thoughts on this radical bill: is a ploy for getting abortions back, destroy the American family, power for Democrats and destruction of family values. At this point a person can choose God or Satan——-Marriage is clearly stated in the Holy Bible in Mark 10- Male/ Female. They are the only ones to make connections in a marriage. Not male, male/ not female, female. God planned this from beginning of creations. V. 6–Gods plan was to have a gift of a family, that is one of the reasons he made a woman to bear children not man. 1 Corinthians 6, 7 state to avoid sexual sin/ are idol worshiping, male prostitution, homosexual, adulterers, will not enter the kingdom of heaven until you make it right with God to never return to sin. What a lot of people who do not understand is that we our bodies are actually parts to Christ body. So if you sin in a homosexual or prostitution life you are because it is a sin of immortality. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy spirit who lives in you. This is the gift Jesus left us when he ascended to Heaven. The respect of marriage act is a : If this bill is passed–it is now in the Senate and sadly has the backing of Senators in both parties–it would mean that states no longer have the authority or ability to define marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman. It would also require federal recognition of polygamy if one state chooses to recognize it. This bill not only woefully brings to an end the defense of marriage act, but infringes on the religious freedom of millions of people of faith with this proposed federal law to uphold radical views. You (we) do not belong to our selves, God bought us with a high price his son Jesus who paid it all. This bill is only written to allow sin of condemnation to be ok to practice. Homosexuality, gay, LGBTQ, in a married state to each is sin. In a unmarried state between man, woman. It also is sin. It is better to stay single if you can contain lust. Being married man, to man, woman to woman is a grave sin and you dishonor God. 1 Corinthians is a clarification of what sin is. As a person of faith, I am deeply concerned about the recently proposed Respect for Marriage Act It is a evil agenda to take condemnation away from our human side, but sin is still sin just like there is a Heaven and A Real Hell. A real Satan who is passing these thoughts of this bill imbedded into peoples minds and hearts as lies to destroy our beliefs in God and a real marriage. Republican senators Do not be fooled by this bill which has nothing to do with marriage it has every to do with control and breaking the family apart forever to destroy the building of a true family and the Democrats to have this elite power and money.
