Prayer for France: Seeking Solutions to Pension Reforms

24 Marzo 2023

We pray for France, which is experiencing massive strikes and protests in defiance of Macron’s pension reforms. Public anger rose when people knew that the government wants to hike the retirement age. Violence has intensified in recent days. The bill must pass to a review by the French Constitutional Council before becoming law. According to the President, the retirement system needs to be modified to keep it financed, while opponents propose another solution to increase taxes on the wealthy or companies.
