SPRINGDALE, Ark. — Dr. Ronnie Floyd releases the following statement on the administration’s decision to intervene in Syria:
“While it is not up to us to decide, or even know, the best course of action when our nation intervenes in an international conflict, as Christians we can always turn to the most effective form of intervention we know is available to us: prayer. So I say to every Christian in America, pray for our leaders that they may have the wisdom to act with both strength and compassion during this critical time. And pray for the people of Syria. May God grant them the peace and freedom they have so fervently longed for the past six years.”
