On June 21-22, 2019 we gathered at Breakthrough Church Tulsa to sign prophetically the Reconciliation Quilt at We Forgive Tulsa.
We gathered to honor Bishop Otis G. Clark, a survivor of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot and a true instrument of love and reconciliation. This is the 98th year since the riot and 400th year since the first slave arrived to America.
Now is the time to forgive, love everyone and move forward in God's divine destiny. We need a revival and move of the Holy Spirit to bring reconciliation and forgiveness to our land. It starts with us and now is the time.
We had a dynamic group of speakers and a panel discussion. Commendations, and proclamations were given. At key sites we held prayers, prophetic proclamations, and identificational repentance.
This was a Kairos moment. It is a new day for Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Blessings & Empowerment,

Tulsa, Oklahoma: Our Proclamation:
“We Forgive Tulsa” Day of Reconciliation June 21-22, 2019
WHEREAS, Otis G. Clark born on February 13, 1903 in Meridian, Oklahoma Indian Territory was a Survivor of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot and a true instrument of love, and racial & cultural reconciliation. We proclaim that June 21, 2019 will be known as “We Forgive Tulsa” Day, Healing the Wound of the 1921 Greenwood Race Riot; and,
WHEREAS, in commemoration of the 98thAnniversary of the Race Riots in the Historic Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma; during the “We Forgive Tulsa” event; and the 400th Year Anniversary of the first Slaves Arriving on America’s Shores; and,
WHEREAS, the daughter and grand-daughter of Otis G. Clark, Dr. Gwyneth and Ambassador Star Williams (Miss Oklahoma USA 2003 & Miss Black Oklahoma 2000-2001) will continue the Legacy of racial reconciliation and the “We Forgive Tulsa” Movement that promotes and fosters unity, peace and reconciliation of the races, cultures and people groups and stays true to our American foundation of “One Nation Under God Indivisible” locally, nationally, and internationally; and,
WHEREAS, we as African-Americans acknowledge that we can no longer withhold forgiveness from anyone and expect to progress. We acknowledge and release all oppression in the region of North Tulsa, among the African-American community and declare that “We will forgive, we will release the bitterness and choose to move forward. We seek not revenge but to be reconciled; because to move forward we must forgive them. We close this gate of the past and open a new gate of hope, progress, destiny and divine purpose. We acknowledge as African-American people that no man can do for us what God can do as our Jehovah Gemolah, the God of recompense; In the words of Otis Clark, when you’re on God’s side, you’re on the winning side and if you’re not on God’s side you are a loser; and,
WHEREAS, we believe the blood of the lives lost on May 31-June 1, 1921 cries from the ground, not for revenge but to heal the racial divide and bring restoration. We declare and decree a new day for Tulsa as a community – unified and healed; and that the dry bones shall live again. No longer, divided, wounded and bitter; but better - we are better together. Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Matthew 6:12 God bless Tulsa, Oklahoma and God Bless the United States of America.
