There are no words to describe how I am feeling right now except pure sadness. It seems that everyday there is some type of killings or pre-meditated murders. When I heard of the shootings at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida and at last count 50 killed and 53 critically injured (CBS News), my heart is broken. And I know I am not the only one that feels this way.
On July 20, 2012 my cousin, Matt McQuinn, was one of the victims in the Aurora Colorado movie theater shooting. There are no words that comfort you when tragedy like this happens. We knew Matt loved Jesus and we know he is with him. That was the best comfort we could have.
Dear Lord Jesus,
We don’t know why things like this happen? We don’t understand, but we know that you have plans for all our lives. Lord I know that you will cause good to come out of this horrible tragic situation. Lord I ask you be with the family members that lost loved ones, for all the survivors and for everyone that has been affected by this senseless killing, yet again. I come to you, and ask that you pour out your peace upon each and every one of them and comfort them. In your Holy name, Amen.
