Pray For Charleston

By now, you’ve likely heard about the tragedyΒ of the Charleston Church massacre. I found out about it yesterday, from a news article online as well as a post from a fellow blogger. Since then, I took the time to read an article detailing the events of the massacre. Speculations say that the shooter, Dylann Roof, has been planning this shooting for a long time, and that the shooting was race-related.

It’s a very frightening event for America. In the past, we have heard about school shootings, but now the violence is entering our churches as well. I urge churches across America to have security, to prevent something like this from happening again. I also find it sad to hear about another race related hate crime. It seems that a sharp division is developing between races in America, which is something that should have ended with Martin Luther King Jr. Thus, I ask you to pray for reconciliation in America, the people who attend the Charleston church, and for God’s hand of protection over churches throughout America.

  1. I have been and will continue to pray for the families of the victims and the community of Charleston, SC. What a terrible crime. I am also praying that any other people who seek to divide and destroy the US by taking innocent lives, will be stopped before another tragic event occurs. I second your call for churches to add more security. There’s really nothing you can say or do in this situation other than pray for the community. Such a senseless tragedy!
