“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families of the tragic shootings that took place today in Paris, France. The world we live in is filled with darkness that spans the globe and no country or region is exempt. The hatred that is most often expressed through violence is nothing short of horrific and is sadly a sign of the times.
Terrorism in any capacity is difficult to swallow, hard to understand, and usually results in tragedy that rips families, communities, and cities apart. Now more than ever, we as Christ followers need to rally together and pray for hope and healing in a hurting, fallen, and broken world.
May the Comforter, the Holy Spirit of God, descend upon that city and heal the hearts, bodies, and minds of those victimized by terror. May the strength of the Father, the grace of His son, and the anointing of The Spirit fill Paris with shalom from above. In Jesus name. ”
