This is Part II of a two part pancocojams series about the Christian saying "I plead the blood of Jesus" ("I plead the blood").
This post showcases three African American* Gospel videos that include the Christian saying "I plead the blood".
The lyrics for Charles Jenkins' Gospel song "War" are also included in that post. That song includes the words "I plead the blood."
* The choice of these videos does not mean to imply that this saying is only used by African Americans.

The saying "I plead the blood" is first found in this video at 5:16 as part of Rev. Norful's old school prayer.
Pancocojams Editor's Note: In response to a comment about the lack of social distancing because of Covid-19 at the event that is shown in this video,Yolanya Howard,a commenter in 2020, wrote "This is from 6years ago!!!!". Therefore, that event occurred in 2014, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This concludes Part II of this two part pancocojams series.
