The Sorrow of an Evil Act

My heart is so filled with sadness because of the evil that was done this morning in Connecticut. I cannot even imagine the sorrow and horror that these families are facing. My eyes are filled with tears as I type this and think about all this.

This is a horrible, evil act. The darkness of someone doing such a despicable act just confirms in my mind the truth of Ephesians 6:12, "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." Something dark and evil was put into this man's heart and he acted on it.

Please be in prayer with me for the families of these children and teachers. Please pray for those who are mourning and devastated by their loss. Pray for those children who saw the horror and were terrorized by this evil act. Pray for the Lord's comfort and love to be felt in these families lives.

Dear Lord,

I come before your throne and ask for comfort for these families who lost their children this morning. I pray that you would be with them, cover them with your feathers and give them refuge. I pray that they would turn to you and know that You are with them. I ask that you would also comfort those who witnessed these horrific acts and that you would give them the peace only You can give. I pray for those who were injured - that your healing touch would be on them. Oh, Lord, my heart is so hurting for these families who are grieving. Please make yourself truly known to them and give them refuge and comfort. I pray this through your son's Jesus name - Amen.

God bless you - Julie
