More than 1,000 faithful from multiple Christian denominations gathered Aug. 15 in downtown Oklahoma City for the first-ever Unity Prayer Service and Walk. The event provided an uplifting opportunity to pray, sing and praise Jesus in response to a satanic ritual performed in the city and against violence and hatred around the world.
Rev. William Novak, vicar general for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, welcomed the crowd.
“I stand here tonight with leaders and representatives from many Christian denominations and faiths. We are all brothers and sisters unified in peace and in prayer. As we stand here in this particular place, we are reminded what evil has done to our city and the lives it has destroyed, but we are also aware of the good that rests in every human heart; good that overcomes evil; that seeks healing and community and peace. We ask God to dispel all darkness and evil of every kind from our city, our nation and our world.”
