The State of France

The Anchoress has posted an email from a reader who lives in France reporting on the state of the riots in her country, and pleading for prayers from Christians across the world.

May I ask you to pray for us in France, just ordinary decent people who do no have the means to go elsewhere? I do not sleep much. The situation is frightening.
Apparently the French media is not any better than ours about reporting the truth about what is going on in their own backyard:

To night, one state channel, FR3, has decided not to speak about burned cars. No fire reported=no fire at all. Most people don’t even know that dozens and dozens of little churches all over France have been set on fire during these past years. Our media don’t like the Catholics and as they despise the ordinary French people, they did not want us to put 2 and 2 together.
When we dare to grumble, when we dare to murmur that Islam is a religion of death, that we do not want to become an Islamic republic, the media and the politicians also scorned us saying we were racist and fascist and anti-arab, and islamophobic, and anti-Semitic.
We pay, with our taxes, scores of “associations” full of communist-islamics and we just have to shut our mouths and say amen. Well, not “amen”; amen is not politically acceptable.

She closes with a verse from the New Testament book of Ephesians:

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Please read the entire letter from Marianne, and be in prayer for the people of France.

Thank you to the Right Mom for pointing us to this great post!
