Justin Bieber took a moment to pray to God, during his concert in Los Angeles, hours after the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris killed more than 120 people. Watch his emotional plea for ‘restoration and peace.’
Justin Bieber, 21, prayed to God at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Nov. 13, in light of the evening’s terrorist attacks in Paris, which killed more than 120 and injured as many or more. Telling his sold-out audience, “God, we thank you and we trust you,” JB brought the arena to an utter standstill. Watch his gut wrenching prayer.
“God, we just thank you so much,” Justin said, in response to the seemingly coordinated attacks which wreaked havoc on Paris just hours before the concert. “Through all the pain, through all the darkness, God you still shine your light. God help us to just focus on you through it all, and not be distracted, God. We just pray for the families and pray for restoration, and just peace. It must be so tough, I couldn’t even imagine. But God, we just, we thank you and we trust you. Even though it’s hard and it’s hard for the families, we just trust you. In your name we pray, amen.”
The day, which marked the highly anticipated release of Justin’s new album Purpose, should have been one of the best for Justin, but it was of course mired in sadness following the devastation. Prior to the second of two performances, which were special events held to celebrate the new record, Justin took to Twitter to express his profound grief over the tragedy.
Had a great first show but just heard about what happened in Paris. Thoughts and prayers with everyone #PrayForParis
