Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4)
PRAY IN HOPE
"The most powerful weapon at our disposal against evil is the hope-filled prayer of God’s people."
EVIL IS REBELLION
"Make no mistake, we are at war: an insane rebellion against our Creator God is the root cause of this murderous action."
GOD SWALLOWS THE CURSE
"Though the whole human race participates in this defiance, God is unshakably committed to extending his healing grace as far as this deadly curse is found."
THE WORLD WILL NOT ALWAYS BE THIS WAY
"Yes, evil is real and this act reminds us, once again, that we need the hero who is able and willing... Jesus Christ the righteous..."
GRIEVE WITH HOPE
"Turn in prayer to the captain of our faith who settles hearts and deploys the power of his gospel to the places of greatest need. Saints, he hears your prayers and delights in answering them in heartbreaking moments like this."
