🙏 Help Us Pray for France // Notre Dame Disaster 🔥

Dear Prayer Partner,

Thank you so much for agreeing to join with us in prayer for Paris. As you are likely aware, a symbol of French identity and western culture was badly damaged in a fire on Monday evening. The burning of Notre Dame Cathedral was a visual representation of the relationship with God that the French used to hold sacred.

France is largely post-Christian, with only 25% of the country identifying as Christian, and the majority of those are Catholic. Even with that stated percentage, only 6% of the French attend religious services regularly, and only 14% indicate that they pray once a week or more. As a Spirit-filled believer, these statistics are heartbreaking and stir up something inside of us to see a revival in this great country.

This time of national tragedy is, no doubt, causing many French people to reexamine their relationship with faith. Was it more than just a national symbol? We have to imagine that when the Notre Dame burned it begged the question, "Why do I care so much?”

Each cathedral that dots the countryside is a monument to a relationship with God the people used to have. We pray that God will once again open up doors for faith conversations. Help us pray that God will use this to open opportunities to minister to people who are looking for faith again.

As you are perhaps aware, 1.5 months ago our church engaged in a week of fasting and prayer walking around where we meet in the city. We were praying and believing for spiritual dominion and breakthrough. (We have indeed seen a revival that has begun with 13 being Spirit-filled, 1 baptized, 2 have had demons cast out, and much more.) It was reported the same week we did this that the witches of Paris assembled and did the same thing in the center of the city. There is a spiritual war taking place in the atmosphere here. Please keep the work in France in prayer.

We are attaching prayer points below this message to help guide your prayers.

Once again thank you for agreeing with us in prayer for revival in France!!

God bless!
