Ardèche is Department 07 found in the Rhone-Alpes. This region has been inhabited for a long time. The paintings in the caves records the beginning. In the past this area was named Vivarais is reflected in their coat of arms. This area was fought over in the Religious Wars. Today many leave the area due to the economics. Many come to this department to enjoy the outdoor activities.
Father, we pray that the churches in the area will find ways to be your hands and feet to the people in Ardèche. Let them reach out to those in need. Open doors in marriages that are struggling. Create friendship between the young and the old. Strengthen the influence the local churches have on the people in their communities. Lord, allow your love to shine in this department so people will be drawn to you. We pray all these things in the name of Jesus our King. Amen
