Keep America in Your Prayers

newtown

Words cannot describe the emotions America is currently dealing with as we remember the innocent lives taken in Connecticut last Friday. Prayers have been offered all over the country for those affected; we here in Brooklyn Park are among the many who continue to pray for God’s peace, strength, and grace to surround those affected by this senseless tragedy.

For parents, especially, this situation hits home as we try to comprehend the loss of innocent children these Connecticut families are facing. President Obama stated it well when he said, “Every parent in America has a heart heavy with hurt” as well as his statement about “holding our children as close as we can and reminding them how much we love them.”

As we move forward as a nation, remember that prayer is vital. Keep every child, parent, and family affected in your prayers. Pray for Sandy Hook Elementary and Newtown, Connecticut. Pray for America’s leaders as they address how to move forward as a nation, and pray for America. America needs God more than ever, and your prayers pave a way for Him to work.
