Pray for Paris

Earlier in the year we all proclaimed 'Je suis Charlie' following the attack on the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine offices - after Friday, 13th November 2015 following multiple attacks on the population of Paris and all nationals visiting the French capital, we were exhorted to 'Pray for Paris'
