TURA: shocked by the cowardly terror attacks on Christians and innocent civilians in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, citizens of Resubelpara and Mendipathar in North Garo Hills organised a  One day Solidarity Prayer Movement for the victims on Wednesday evening in which hundreds of concerned citizens gathered at Mendipathar Railway Station for a solemn event.

With hundreds of candles lit, citizens of the region offered prayers for the more than 350 departed souls and speedy recovery of the 500 other injured persons in the multiple suicide bombings that targeted Christians during Easter Sunday service in that island nation.

Prayers and words of solidarity were also offered to the families who have suffered from this terror attack in Sri Lanka.
“WE DO NOT SEEK ANY REVENGE BUT FORGIVENESS TO THOSE ENEMIES SO THAT THEY BECOME LIKE ONE AMONG US ONE DAY. AS JESUS SAID TO FATHER ON THE CROSS, ‘ FATHER FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING”, echoed from the general participants in the Prayer Movement.
The Peace Club Violinists of Resubelpara who took part in the solemn event presented a special musical number “I HAVE DECIDED TO FOLLOW JESUS”.
Church elders and youth leaders who took part in the Prayer Movement also made appeals for Peace in Shri
Lanka.
“Our heartfelt condolences to those bereaved family members who lost their loved ones to the terror attacks in Shri Lanka. May their departed souls rest in eternal Peace. May God console the aching hearts of all
the bereaved. May God heal those injured ones those who are under treatment” said Ripseng Marak an organizer of one day Solidarity prayer Movement for Shri Lanka during the programme.
