Prayer | Sandy Hook Elementary

Every era brings forth new enlightenment, new technology, new discoveries, new terrors, a new strand of hatred, a new degree of violence. “The heart of man is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: Who can know it?” I came home today with full intentions of giving my 8 year old son a stern talking to for forgetting his homework at home again this week. Instead I just  hugged him, pinched him and kissed him all night. I understand that Sandy Hook Elementary school could of been, or possibly be, my son’s school. I thank God that tragedy passed over my door step and family today. At the same time I am deeply saddened that tonight, at this very moment 20 parents will not be able to pinch their child, hug their child and kiss their child all night.

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting is a horrific tragedy no child, parent, school administrator or community should have to experience. Today we witnessed the result of sin being introduced into God’s perfect creation. Today we as a country cried out in unison to the one source that could console us and give us strength, God. Please continue to pray for the victims, their families and the healing of this nation.
