After Paris We Need To Pray!

The terrorist attack on Paris this weekend has me thinking. Something that horrific happens let no more people than usual show up at church here. Yet if you really think about them the attacks illustrate the folly of relying only on intelligence and security forces to keep us safe.
If you remember 9/11 you’ll also remember how packed the churches were afterwards. An article today shows the same thing happened in Paris. A better thing would be to not wait for an attack then run to church.
Now before any attacks hit this country is the time to pray. We need much more than Homeland Security. We need God’s protection. We live in a target rich country. How many stadiums will be filled with close to 100,000 people as college football rivalries take place next weekend? How many basketball arenas and NFL stadiums will be packed. The opportunities are endless. We desperately need God’s protection.
As a people we need to return to church. We need to begin praying desperately for the conversion of this nation. We need to become once again a country worthy of God’s protection.
