    Loving Father our hearts and minds grieve for our brothers and sisters who were slain and injured in this horrific attack. Your Word says we will all have to endure hardships, failure and tragedy in our walks with You. It is all part of living and walking in this fallen world. We pray for Your comfort to be with those who’s loved ones were killed and those who are injured. May the Spirit of Christ be close to them and may your grace abound in and around them. Your Word is a love story, one about Your love for us. Lord give these people a double portion of Your love that they may not only endure but come closer to you as well. We pray all this in the precious name of Your Son and our Lord, Jesus Christ amen.
