We pray for our elected leaders who so desperately need wisdom from beyond themselves.
We pray for the clergy in Florida who care first-hand for the spiritual needs of those who have experienced this great tragedy.
We pray for the Law enforcement agencies who seek to find out who would do this so they might be brought to justice.
We pray for our nation — that this event will bring us together and turn our thoughts toward helping each other to overcome the threat of terrorism.

May God break the cycle of violence to make a difference for His Peace and Grace in this sinful world. Amen.
