President Donald Trump will hold a video teleconference with state governors, law enforcement, and national security officials today regarding the outbreaks of violence in cities across the nation. The discussion will center on the restoration of order to the impacted regions and how to maintain peace. The president is focused on the safety and security of American communites.

In the wake of the killing of George Floyd by a police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota one week ago, riots have erupted in urban areas around the country. What had started out as peaceful protests against the tragedy rapidly escalated to looting and the setting of fires. The violence began to break out in several other metropolitan areas, such as Los Angeles, Atlanta, Boston, New York City, and Washington, D.C.

Curfews have been issued by mayors and governors in affected areas, with some officials declaring states of emergency.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president as he strategizes with federal and state officials.
  • For discernment in the necessary steps to take to safeguard the populace.
  • For the Lord to guide everyone in positions of authority during the agitation.
