Fayetteville pastor feels "spirit of God"

As reported in The Christian Science Monitor and many other media, Rev. Larry Wright (shown below, preaching) was speaking about violence in church during a New Year's Eve prayer service at his Heal the Land Outreach Ministries in Fayetteville, NC, when a man with a semi-automatic rifle in one hand and ammunition in the other walked in the door and down the center aisle.

Wright stepped down from the pulpit and met the man in the aisle, asking "Can I help you?" The man, still unnamed, said the Lord told him that he needed to go to church before he did something bad. Wright took the rifle from him, patted him down, and prayed for the man, who fell to his knees in tears. Someone called 911, and police quickly arrived, but were asked to wait outside until worship ended. The man sat in the front row as Wright resumed preaching to about 60 congregants, and during the alter call he came forward and asked for salvation. "He gave his life to Christ," Wright told the Fayetteville Observer.
