Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother
sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to
him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times
.”………………………Matthew 18:21-22

Forgiveness is not that stripe which says, “I will forgive, but not
forget.” It is not to bury the hatchet with the handle sticking out
of the ground, so you can grasp it the minute you want
it………. ……… ..D.L.Moody

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for sending Your only begotten son to suffer and die for
the salvation of my sins. Dear Lord, I pray that I extend this same
forgiveness to those who have offended me. Let me not keep count of
the number of times they have offended me, but truly forgive those
who have repented with sincere hearts. I pray for those, Dear Lord,
who harbor unforgiveness in their hearts; those who allow past hurts
to eat away at them, refusing to let go of the past. Open their
hearts so that they may let go of the pain and their wounds may be
healed. In Jesus most precious name, I pray. Amen.

Georgia may decide to execute an innocent man. Help, please

Tomorrow, Georgia may decide to execute an innocent man.

Call the State Board of Pardons and Paroles, and ask them to grant clemency to Troy Davis: 404-651-6599.

Many ColorOfChange. org members are calling and getting a message
that says “the mailbox does not exist.” The number we included in the
email is correct (404-651-6599) , but it’s unable to handle the number
of calls we’re making. If you keep calling back you’ll eventually get
through. You can try later in the day or alternatively you can try
another number: 404-656-5712. We apologize for any confusion or

In just over a week, Georgia may execute an innocent man. Can you make a call right now to the State Board of Pardons and Paroles to ask them to spare the life of Troy Anthony Davis?

Troy Davis was
sentenced to death for the 1989 murder of a police officer in Savannah;
a murder he maintains he did not commit. There was no physical evidence
against him and the weapon used in the crime was never found. The case
against him consisted entirely of witness testimony that was full of
inconsistencies. Since then, all but two of the state’s non-police
witnesses from the trial have recanted their testimony. Many have sworn
in affidavits that police pressured or coerced them into testifying or
signing statements. Former FBI director William Sessions told the
Atlanta Journal-Constitutio n: “Serious questions have been raised about
Davis’ guilt. It would be intolerable to execute an innocent man.”

The State Board of Pardons and Paroles is meeting today to decide Troy Davis’ fate. Can you call them right now
and ask them to spare his life? Call (404) 651-6599 and tell them you
are for clemency or commutation for Troy Davis because you don’t want
Georgia to make the mistake of executing an innocent man.

Once you’ve called,
please let us know by sending an email to calls@colorofchange .org.
Then, please pass this on to your friends and family–Troy Davis needs
all the help he can get.

Last summer, the day
before Troy Davis’ original execution date of July 17, 2007,
ColorOfChange. org members flooded the phone lines of the State Board of
Pardons and Paroles asking for clemency for Troy Davis. The board
granted him a stay of execution stating, “the board will not
allow an execution to proceed in this State unless and until its
members are convinced that there is no doubt as to the guilt of the
accused.” The Georgia Supreme Court and US Supreme Court have refused
to hear new evidence in the case–ensuring that doubts about his guilt
will always remain.

Once again, Troy Davis’ life is in the hands of the State Board of Pardons and Paroles. They are meeting today
to decide whether to move forward with his execution. Every ounce of
pressure will be needed to reverse the course of this injustice.

Can you take a moment
to call the board and ask them to commute the death sentence of Troy
? Call (404) 651-6599 and tell them to grant Troy Davis clemency
or commute his sentence. Then let us know you called by sending an
email to calls@colorofchange .org.

Thanks and Peace,
