The Power of Praying for Your Enemies

For the past 21 days, we have been participating in the “Pray for your Enemies” led by Angela K. Chambers, the founder and CEO of The Greenwood Beat – WFPG. This challenge has truly been a transformative experience, the power of praying for those who have hurt you is rewarding.

 

Throughout the challenge, we have been encouraged to pray for various aspects of our enemies’ lives. We have prayed for their joy, their soul, their success, their family, and even their businesses. These prayers have been filled with genuine love and compassion, and we have seen the goodness of God move in our own lives as a result.

Many participants have shared their testimonies, expressing how unresolved issues have been resolved through this challenge. One person who accepted the challenge shared, “I appreciated the reminder. The more I prayed, the less I desired revenge.” This statement resonated with me deeply, as I too experienced a shift in my perspective towards my enemies.

Praying for compassion for my enemies gave me a different perspective on the issues and challenges they face. It allowed me to see beyond their hurtful actions and understand that they too are human beings with their own struggles. This challenge has truly opened my eyes and given me a greater awareness of the complexities of human relationships.

One participant shared, “I have NEVER prayed for anyone that did not like me. This was a great experience and challenge. It has helped me with my journey with God and being obedient.” This sentiment is echoed by many others who have taken part in the challenge. Praying for our enemies is not an easy task, but it is a powerful act of obedience that can lead to profound personal growth.

Throughout the 21 days, each daily topic or focus has allowed me to reflect on specific situations and areas where I can pray for my enemies. It has given me a framework to approach my prayers with intentionality and purpose. I am incredibly grateful to have found this challenge and the support of Angela K. Chambers LLC.

If you are interested in joining the challenge or learning more about Angela and her work, I encourage you to connect with her on Facebook and check out The Greenwood Beat – WFPG’s YouTube channel for inspiration. You can also reach out to Angela directly for prayers at prayers@thegreenwoodbeat.com or angela@thegreenwoodbeat.com.

Take the Challenge: Pray for your Enemies for 21 Days

Take the Challenge: Pray for your Enemies for 21 Days

Take the Challenge: Pray for your Enemies for 21 Days that The Greenwood Beat – WFPG founder has started. Research indicates doing something twenty-one times will become a habit. Thus, Angela K. Chambers has shared this challenge on her social media platform, Angela K. Chambers.

Angela says, “As I seek God more, my heart posture changes and my greatest desire is to be obedient and follow his commandments. Matthew 5:43-45 states: You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. ‘ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. I want to know that I am a child of my Father in heaven.”

I was going to schedule the post God gave me, but that wasn’t what he told me to do. So, each morning, I pray and then share what God gives me to share. God reminded me that this is daily mana for me. I choose to be obedient. The blessings revealed for my obedience cannot be measured. 

The Soul of our enemies was the first prayer area for our enemies on Day 1. To date, we have prayed: Day 2 – Health, Day 3 – Mental State, Day 4 – Relationships, Day 5 – Finances, and Day 6 – Family.  

“It is not too late to join us on this journey. I would be delighted to have anyone agree with God’s Word as much as possible, says Angela.” Connect with me on Facebook for daily prayer areas. 

Obedience is better than sacrifice.

Tulsa’s CEO’s Night Out is Catching on and Growing

Tulsa’s CEO’s Night Out is Catching on and Growing

The CEO’s Night Out, which Katina Walker started in her beauty supply location, Roots Barber & Beauty Supply (Roots), has grown and has been a big hit for business owners in Tulsa. CEO’s Night Out was created to help promote Tulsa’s founders, entrepreneurs, CEO’s and visionaries. She worked to form a solid community of entrepreneurs who were passionate about helping others and diversity and inclusion. A primary goal of CEO’s Night Out is to create networking opportunities, which include education, information, and testimonial business journeys. The space also allows the attendees to share and discuss challenges and solutions.

Attendees’ demographics comprise different cultural, economic and social backgrounds, which provides a broad scope of information. Katina met several of the entrepreneurs as she created opportunities for local entrepreneurs to showcase their products in Roots. She also became known as “Tulsa Entrepreneur HUB.”

Katina and her husband opened their first storefront in 2019, “Preme Cannabis Company LLC.” Her second business name was given to her in a dream, “Roots Barber & Beauty Supply.” So in 2020, she opened the second storefront and began making her products of sugar scrubs and body butters as therapeutic supplements. She creates products for men, women, and children.

CEO’s Night Out has collaborated with The Greenwood Beat – WFPG to create “CEO’s Night Out Meets The Greenwood Beat” and will host events every second Saturday of the month from 4-7pm at the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Tulsa, 415 S. Boston Ave, Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The Greenwood Beat – WFPG, Oklahoma’s first black, women-owned radio station located in the Historic Greenwood District, also known as “The Original Black Wall Street” in Tulsa, Oklahoma. WFPG launched on June 8, 2023. Angela K. Chambers is the Chief Executive Officer, and Francetta L. Mays is the Chief Operations Officer

The first event under this collaboration will be held Saturday, August 12, 2023, from 4 – 7 pm with guest speaker Raymond Walker. Walker is a businessman with experience in helping entrepreneurs from startups through scaling.  

Walker co-founded Walker Co. with over 12 years of advertising design and consulting experience. He shares his experience and is determined to create mission-aligned, people-empowered cultures through Brand Augmentation (TM).
