Please join me in praying for Las Vegas, all who are physically wounded and all those who are emotionally wounded more than words will ever be able to describe.
Lord, our hearts are broken for everything that is happening in our country and our world. Today our minds are in shock and our hearts are shattered for the evil that occurred in Las Vegas last night. There are just no words to express the heartache for the people and families impacted by this horrific tragedy.
Please heal those in the hospital and provide strength and wisdom to the medical staff in all the local hospitals especially when weariness begins to set in. Give unexplainable peace and comfort to those parents and families and friends who are grieving a loss that should never have happened.
Make Your Holy Presence known and deeply felt by those who feel abandoned and those who are beyond brokenhearted. Draw people to You who need a Savior now more than ever.
Use us all throughout this country as the hands and feet of Jesus in whatever ways you orchestrate in these coming weeks and months, regardless of where we live. Compel everyone’s hearts to pray for those who are hurting and to stay focused on what really matters.
Protect us from evil as a nation and as individuals. We know and believe You are still on the throne and that You are sovereign, but we ache over the evil in the world. The unfairness of tragedy and the people who are so lost and filled with evil that they can commit such heinous crimes is impossible for our human minds to process and understand.
Help us see You at work in this tragedy somehow. Bring our nation together and help us to be united and not divided, especially in the aftermath of this tragedy.
God please bless America. Amen.
