I beg you to read this short prayer.
something horrible and tragic happened to many families in Connecticut today. There are at least 18 dead little kids in that elementary school and several staff who died trying to save them. I ask you today to bless and comfort the members of those families. I ask that you throw the biggest, funnest party ever for your newest members of heaven. I ask that you show justice to the monster who committed the crime. I ask that you show mercy and comfort to the law enforcement and medical team who are there trying to sort through the bodies of children and keep themselves together. I ask that you guide the rest of this country in a nationwide effort to protect our children, friends, and other family from future harm. I ask that you touch the hearts of politicians who can make a difference. I ask that the arms of Jesus be around all the parents, siblings, and friends of those who so needlessly died. And finally I thank you so so dearly that my precious little girls are safe at home with me and for all the many blessings I take for granted every day. I thank you for every smile and every laugh. I even thank you for the frustration I sometimes feel because at least it means my babies are alive and healthy enough to get on my nerves sometimes. There is no greater joy in a person's life than the joy provided by their child and no greater pain than the loss of a precious child. There is so much my heart wants to say and though I can't find the words I know that you hear them anyway. Let your peace find these families. Amen.
