Bishop's Call To Prayer

Bishop Eric Menees

Today, without provocation or warning terrorists attacked several public gatherings in Paris killing over 150 people.  Once again we are graphically reminded of the fact that we live in a fallen and dangerous world.  Please join me in praying for the people of France – the leaders – the first responders and most especially for the families and friends of those killed or wounded in this evil attack.

“Almighty God and Heavenly Father.  We come before you with heavy hearts for the scores of men and women murdered in Paris in the terrorist attacks.  We plead your Grace and Peace to surround that City of Light and all of her citizens. We lift before you the French government officials responding to these traumatic events. We lift before you the terrorists themselves and pray they will renounce such violence and evil, repent of their actions, turn themselves in to authorities and most importantly turn their hearts and minds to Jesus Christ accepting your Son as Lord and Savior.  This we ask in the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen”
