My heart is heavy today. I’m sure many of you feel the same way in light of the events in Connecticut this weekend. On top of that I have two brothers in Christ who lost their fathers this weekend. I know first hand what it is like to deal with the death of parents. With all the tragedy of the weekend I want to simply offer up a prayer for today.
Father, my heart is heavy. I am stricken with grief for people I do not know. I pray Lord for the families in Connecticut who are grieving the loss of their loved ones. God only You can offer any peace during a time of so much tragedy. Father, bring peace and comfort.
Lord, I lift up my brothers, Alexis and Kyle today. As they grieve over the loss of their fathers may they find peace in You. Allow them to rest in the knowledge that they will be reunited one day in heaven with their loved ones. Lord, may they remember the good times. I ask that you use them during this difficult time to be a light for You. Father, comfort them and their families.
God, we know You are in control. May we rest in You through all the devastation and turmoil. Hold us in Your love, mercy and grace.
In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
