Both in America and China today, children were attacked wholesale; in America, 20 children were killed by a gunman in Newtown, Connecticut, along with 6 teachers; and in China, many were slashed with a knife. Innocence was attacked globally and we must pray. God be with those touched directly and indirectly by these horrible attacks.
Lord, Jesus Christ, Almighty God the Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth and all that is seen and unseen. May your Holy Spirit dwell in the hearts and minds of those grieving because of these incidents and bring them comfort amdist their sadness.
I know you care and love us and are our sovereign Lord and it grieves you to see these innocent children killed and terrorized across your world. Sins such as acts like these occur in this world because it is still subject to sin. Forgive us our sins Lord.
Your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, suffered and died for us and I thank you for the fact that we can be freed from the sins of this world when, in relationship with you through the Holy Spirit, and shielded by the Son as intercessor for our sins that, in the flesh, we continue in till the day we die, we can, nevertheless, come to you for help, assistance, guidance and comfort.
Please Lord God Almighty, comfort those who have lost their children today and this world that, today, has lost even more of its innocence.
In your precious name, Jesus Christ, I ask this prayer be heard by the Father and that, though tragic as this is – we can rest assured that those little ones are now comforted in your loving arms. It is we who suffer the grief of their loss. Thank you Lord for restoring them – with you they’ll not suffer ever again. Fear and terror are vanquished in your presence and assuredly, they are in your presence. May those who lost these little ones rest comforted by this fact and look forward to being reunited with them, in the world to come.
This world shall pass away and our lives with it, but the Word of the Lord shall not; nor will the continuance of our lives in Christ cease. Nothing shall separate us from the love of God.
God Bless all of you who have lost their loved ones today and may the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you, now and forever, Amen.
