Yesterday our country learned about another tragic and horrific event. To do a linkup today just seems so trivial, and so, there will be none.
May we take this time to pray …
Lord, there is no way we can ever make sense of evil. Today we pray for the families who suffered the loss of their children, and for families forever changed. Bring Your peace and Your comfort.
Be with the children and teachers who witnessed this event which will forever mark their memories. Bring healing and help them in the days ahead. Give them courage to return to school when the new school year returns.
Be with all the children and teachers who must yet attend school. Bring Your peace to each of their hearts and minds. Surround schools with Your protection for You alone are our safety and refuge.
It is in Your Name we pray, Amen.
