#PrayforParis ... Pray for the WORLD

My fellow Americans, my brothers and sisters across the world,
We MUST call evil, evil. 
We must stand steadfast in the face of fear and be courageous, and we must stand together against those who would seek to spread terror, violence and horror. 
This is not a time to withdraw, or to build walls. 
This is a time to reach out and take each others hands, to walk united - in a show of force - a force of good. 
This is not a time to be politically correct. 
This not a time to be worried about causing offence, this my friends is a time for serious action - from the streets of small towns to the paved walks of great cities, WE MUST CRY FREEDOM. 
DO NOT LET YOUR VOICE BE SILENCED BY FEAR.
Today I pray, not for the peace the world would give, but that peace which only God can give, that peace that passes understanding. I pray for those in the line of fire, those searching for hope, that they would be given the strength and courage to endure. May God bless us and have mercy on our souls, in the matchless name of Christ the King. Amen. 
-JLR Grace
