[Statement] Dr. David Jeremiah Calls For Prayer In the Face of Yesterday’s Terror Attack in New York City

Nov. 1, 2017

EL CAJON, Calif. — Pastor, Bible teacher, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated TV and radio host, Dr. David Jeremiah releases the following statement in response to the attack in New York City on Tuesday, October 31, 2017:

“Far too often, terrorism has fractured our peace as a nation and inflicted unthinkable pain upon our people. We must never succumb to a ‘spirit of fear,’ rather we must respond with ‘power, love and a sound mind.’ (2 Tim 1:7). We must meet this act of terror with the power of our prayers, and the evil that inspired it with the redeeming love of the Lord Jesus Christ. A nation that is “one nation under God” has no reason to fear. While today we grieve, we also thank God for His sovereign protection and for the local, state and federal authorities whose work has foiled plots we never knew were planned and who have responded, time and again, so heroically on our behalf. They are our heroes and God is our hope.”
