NAD Day of Prayer for Racial Justice and Equality (June 27)


The leadership of the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is asking its members, churches, ministries, and services to join in a special day of prayer on June 27 for the deep hurt and frustration that racial injustice and inequity have caused in North America. As the conversations on racism in society and in the church continue to grow, we are urging the 1.2 million church members in the territories of Bermuda, Canada, Guam/Micronesia, and the United States to come together and prayerfully seek God’s guidance and leading in our lives, especially in how we relate to one another, and how we can help stop injustice against people of color. As leaders, we want to ask the Holy Spirit to open our hearts and ears so we may understand and listen to our brothers and sisters, specifically in the Black American community, as they share the pain and anger they have experienced over the years. We want to ask for forgiveness, and we want to ask for compassion and strength to have the tough yet necessary conversations so our church can move forward in healing the wounds that run deep in our faith community. By coming to God in prayerful surrender to Him, we can become the church God wants us to be to reach out to those hurting in all our communities.

ADRA Canada Denounces Racial Inequality in the United States

“The past couple of weeks have shone a spotlight on the systematic inequalities that exist in our society. At ADRA Canada, we believe in the inherent dignity of each human being. Racism at all levels must end. We work in Canada and around the world with vulnerable people groups who are subject to poverty, violence, and distress through no fault of their own. As we strive to meet our purpose “To serve humanity so all may live as God intended”, we will not rest while such disparity still exists.

We will stand for the oppressed to correct injustice to the best of our capabilities. ADRA Canada affirms our support of the statement “Denouncing Racial Inequality in the United States” issued by ADRA International.”
