Let’s get rid of any attitudes that ignore prayer and believe “gun violence won’t happen in our local schools just because ____.” We can fill in the blank with whatever sorry excuse we might have for not praying for our schools.
Today, another school shooting took place at Great Mills High School in Great Mills, Maryland. One student killed and two others shot.
Great Mills is unincorporated town of 7000 citizens. It’s considered a “safe neighborhood” with 33% of the population being college graduates, 79% being married, and 72% owning homes.
But today, Great Mills joins the long list of schools being attacked by an armed murderer.
My prayer today:
Lord, give us willing spirits to overcome our fleshly attitudes so that we will watch and pray for our local schools. And Lord, we cry out to You to comfort the suffering students and parents at Great Mills High School today. You are the only One who can do this. (Based on Matthew 26:41)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for school children.
