City Transformation: Culture of Life through ending suicides
- Pray for an end to suicides in our region, especially among our youth, and for the Church to reach out with hope and healing for those in despair.
We continue to pray for a culture of life in our city and a reduction/elimination of untimely and/or violent death. Our region’s suicide rate is 18.6/100,000 (way above the national average). We are above the national average in murder, rape and assault, as well, and our military personnel often “bring home” the traumas of death and destruction. Our region continues to reap a legacy of lawlessness and murders, some still unsolved or unpunished. We as the Church can intercede for a reversal of that legacy.
