Prayer For Connecticut for those affected by the shooting in CT
Posted 15 December 2012 - 06:59 AM
We lift to you those who are suffering as a result of this terrible shooting. We just cannot understand how people can do this to one another, especially innocent children in a setting in which they are supposed to be safe. Lord, this turns everything upside down for us! We even question you - wondering how you can allow such awful things to happen. But in our pleas and anguish, we remember that there are those who do not chose the path of peace and turn their hurt and anger into violence against your children, their own brothers and sisters.
So we ask you now, have mercy on us. We call upon your promise, "The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18) Be present among the families who suffer pain and unbearable heartache at the loss of their spouse, children, siblings, cousins. Be present with the friends of these families who do not know what to say or do to give comfort, and are suffering themselves. Give guidance to those are in the position to help, using their hands and feet as your own. Help them to trust You as their God of hope. Fill them with Your comfort, peace, and hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We praise you in the midst of all of this. You help us to bring light where there is darkness, healing where there is brokenness, and peace to all of the earth's inhabitants. Guide us all through these dark days and bring your light to our lives, so that we may see your goodness, even in our mourning.

Thank you for the beautiful words, Elisha. My heart goes out to all who are suffering from this tragedy. God gave man free will with which to choose the path he would walk upon. Unfortunately, some choose the dark path while others choose the light path.
