Elementary School Massacre Responses

CT Tragedy

The news is still rolling in, as are updated numbers, to the massacre in the CT elementary school.  The prayers and responses are also rolling in.  Listed below are some notable responses:

Chris Morgan:

O gracious Lord,
hear us as we pray with those who mourn today
because of unspeakable tragedy.

Be merciful to all who grieve
and seek to make sense of the incomprehensible.

Let your love surround families who have suffered loss
and the community of Newtown, as many walk
through the valley of the shadow of death.

Once more we pray that your kingdom may come,
and we look in faith and hope to that day when you will
wipe every tear from our eyes, and death and mourning
and crying and pain will be no more.

Come, Lord Jesus. Amen.


John Myer

Senseless and rotten. Just found out about the Connecticut shootings of those 26 people (20 were children). For those who do evil to the innocent, Jesus has this to say:

Luk 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

The cowardly gunman committed suicide, thinking he would quickly escape justice for what he did. It only means he hurried off to be dealt with by the Great Judge of all, who will render justice much more severe than anything given in a human courtroom.
