DMIP is sponsoring a city-wide service of prayer and remembrance on Maundy Thursday, April 13, 2017. The service will be held at 7:00 PM at Mosaic Church, 2031 West Club Blvd. in Durham. Everyone is invited to attend and participate.
Several Durham pastors initiated and participated in this demonstration to the Durham community and to our nation that the Church in Durham stands as one in the love of Jesus against hatred. See the video and read more here.
Emergency Chaplains is partnering with the Durham Police Department in an outreach project to the homeless. The Fresh Start Outreach empowers officers to identify and help individuals that need medical or mental health services. They will also distribute Personal Care Pouches. DMIP is partnering by asking churches to donate the following items:
- Socks, Gloves, and Stocking Caps
- Chapstick/Lip Balm
- Sugar Free Cough Drops, Mints, or Gum
- Hand Lotion and Hand Sanitizer (trial size)
- Granola or Cereal Bars
- Toothpaste and Toothbrushes
These items may be collected up to December 12 and delivered to Emergency Chaplains, 3218 N. Roxboro Rd. in Durham. Or call 919-399-9468 to schedule a pick up. The goal is to provide two kits for every patrol officer in Durham.
Please pray for this effort and help if you are able. On behalf of DMIP, thank you for your support of Emergency Chaplains and the DPD officers that serve our city.
Durham is not the only place where God is raising up more prayer from His people. Prayer is going up all across the nation. Read this report to see what God did recently in Cleveland. For more information about similar gatherings around the country visit The Response: USA.
Today’s prayer walk was unusually poignant as we gathered at the site of the murder of a fellow minister, Pastor Jamie Daniels. View the video report. Please join us in praying for the end of violence in Durham.
The 2016 observance of the National Day of Prayer was held Thursday, May 5, 12:00 noon to 12:50 PM downtown at The Durham Convention Center. Originally scheduled to be outdoors on the plaza the crowd moved inside when it began to rain, filling one of the convention center meeting rooms and overflowing out into the hallway. Segments of prayer were initiated by ministers and community members with everyone gathering in small groups to pray together. The presence of God was powerful.
DMIP will host this event again the first Thursday in May in 2017. Please put it on your calendar now and plan to participate!
A group of over a hundred people gathered and prayed through downtown Durham. DMIP representatives participated along with people from many churches and organizations. We want to thank our friends at One Love Ministries for organizing this prayer walk. May God bless Durham.
Themed “If My People,” this celebration got 2016 started off right! With hundreds of people from more than 35 congregations coming together from different denominations and cultures, we were blessed to stand as a united community under the common cause of seeing Durham transformed by the power of Jesus Christ. You can visit us on Facebook to learn more. We’d love to have you join us any Tuesday morning for prayer or at one of our future events. For more information call 919-471-0220.
One of DMIP’s goals is to help promote, endorse, and sponsor more corporate prayer gatherings in our city. If your church or organization is involved in gathering people for prayer and you want to let more people know about it, we’ll be happy to help. Please contact us to get the word out.
