Some ways to #PrayforParis

prayforparisThe overwhelming support expressed for Paris in a myriad of ways over the past few days has been an encouragement to us. We hope you are taking the need to pray for Paris seriously and making time to do it. Here are some ways to get you started:

  • For God’s comfort for the family and friends of those who died so suddenly and needlessly.
  • For the survivors and all who were directly affected. They will remember and for some relive this tragic day for the rest of their lives.
  • For emergency and military personnel, police officers and hospital staff, all of whom are tired and facing stress-filled days.
  • For peace and justice to be restored as the government searches for those involved. Pray that leaders would display wisdom and humility as they respond.
  • For a response of love and restoration to spread throughout the city and country, rather than reactions of racial tension or xenophobia.
  • For wisdom for us and others in knowing how to respond and share the love of Christ with our neighbors and friends and that churches would be well-equipped to communicate hope.
  • For many to put their hope and trust in Christ, the only true light that exists in the darkness of our world.

We recommend this article at Christianity Today featuring interviews with Parisian pastors that many of us know, as well as this summary at the Gospel Coalition written by someone working in France.
