Praying, Hoping, and Helping Ayiti Will Make a Difference

Updated: Apr 4

On the heels of Easter celebration, let us extend the spirit of resurrection and renewal on a nation in desperate need of revival. In the midst of the turmoil and uncertainty plaguing Ayiti, there exists a profound call to action for those who hold faith close to their hearts. As Christians, we are not merely called to observe from afar but to actively extend our hands in prayer, hope, and practical assistance. The current crisis in Ayiti demands not only our empathy but our unwavering support in both spiritual and tangible ways.


Prayer: A Foundation of Strength

In moments of chaos and despair, prayer becomes our stronghold. It is through prayer that we connect with the divine and intercede for those in need. Prayer is the lifeline between us and the Almighty God. It is oxygen to the body and healing to the soul. God is the only one who can bring lasting comfort to the afflicted and guidance to the leaders of Ayiti. Pray for the safety and protection of the people, especially those who are vulnerable and marginalized. Maybe you don't have money or resources to give, but your invaluable time interceding on behalf of our nation is more precious than gold. Stand firm on the promise that if we as a people, who are called by His name, would humble ourselves, and pray, and seek God's face, turn from our wicked ways; then God will hear our cries in heaven, forgive our wrongdoings, and heal our land.


Hope: A Beacon of Light

In the face of adversity, hope becomes our guiding light. Though the situation in Ayiti may seem dire, we must hold fast to the belief that brighter days lie ahead. Let us be beacons of hope in our communities, spreading positivity and encouragement wherever we go. Share stories of resilience and perseverance, reminding others that even in the darkest of times, hope has the power to uplift and inspire. Be mindful and stubborn about the narratives you allow to penetrate your mind. Guard your belief with an arsenal of wisdom because there is blinding smoke everywhere, not just in Ayiti. Let our hope be contagious, igniting a flame of optimism that cannot be extinguished by the trials of our country's current circumstances. Let's counteract the traumatic images and rhetoric of Ayiti with positive messages about the island. Since I've been gifted with the ability to write poetry. I just released a piece, called "Standing on the Corner" that I pray will assist with a spark of hope and awareness. It is available on ALL streaming platforms under the name Underscore305.












Help: Practical Assistance with Purpose

While prayer and hope are essential, they must be accompanied by practical assistance. Ayiti is in desperate need of aid, both in terms of humanitarian relief and long-term solutions. As Christians, we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus, reaching out to those in need with compassion and generosity. Consider supporting reputable organizations that are actively involved in providing aid to Ayiti, whether through medical assistance, funding self-sustainable projects on the island, or infrastructure development. Here's a list of organizations you can look into to entrust your hard earned funds. Do your due diligence before sending funds. If you're aware of any companies that are vetted and grounded in the transformation of a better Ayiti, feel free to add them in the comment section:


Furthermore, let us not underestimate the power of advocacy and awareness. Speak out against injustice and corruption, amplifying the voices of the marginalized and advocating for systemic change. Engage with your local representatives, urging them to partner with the diaspora to prioritize aid and support for Ayiti until the country is able to function on its own. By standing in unison with our brothers and sisters in Ayiti, we can work towards a future where peace, stability, and prosperity are attainable for all.


In conclusion, let us heed the call to action and stand in solidarity with Ayiti during this time of crisis. Through prayer, hope, and practical assistance, we can make a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by this crisis. Together, let us pray, hope, and help, knowing that with God's grace, all things are possible.
