A prayer for Las Vegas shootings

From General Minister and President Terri Hord Owens

Oh, Lord – we ache for a day when peace will reign. The families and friends of those killed in the shooting in Las Vegas are in our prayers. We pray for their parents, for their children, for their coworkers to feel your loving arms around them. And God, we pray for healing – healing of physical wounds for those injured, healing of emotional wounds for them and others who experienced the fear of this attack, healing for those whose sense of safety has been dismantled. We pray for healing for this fragmented world where mass shootings are all too common. Lord, hear our prayer.
