Stage 5 Arras / Amiens Metropole
Department 62 Pas-de-Calais will be our focus here in stage 5 located in the region for Nord-Pas-de Calais. This region of France was battled over in WWI and WWII. Here you will find many reminders of those who died for freedom. In the city of Arras from the 10th century men have dug cellars to harvest large stones of calk and lime stones to build the important buildings in this area. These cellars called Les Boves are connected together by tunnels, the citizens in the past have used them for shelter for themselves and for plants, food, and wine.
Dear Father, we pray for the department of Pas-de-Calais and the people who live in this area of France. We pray that they will come see you as David did as their shelter.
Psalm 91:1 Whoever dwells in the of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Lord we pray that the people of Pas-de-Calais will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. We pray all these things in the name of Jesus. Amen
