Video of Christian Rapper Praying with Police Officer Goes Viral

Amidst all the turmoil, racial tension, and back and forth arguments on the news and social media, here is one positive thing you can share that shows two sides coming together under prayer.

Facebook user, Rayshone Burke Manuel, put up an inspiring post that features him praying with a police officer in the middle of a parking lot. Manuel, also known as the artist, I AM BURKE, used his hip-hop track, “WAR ROOM (No Prayer, No Power)” as the background track for the video.

“Right after my last post this officer pulled up and my heart dropped due to all the chaos going on, but God has not given us a spirit of fear,” Manuel posted. “After talking car business as he walked off I felt led to pray for him. I understand that the only solution to America’s problem is JESUS. Jesus needs to be in the hearts of the men on both sides of the gun.”
