Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV
… Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Luke 23:43 NIV
Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with Me in paradise.”
Be strong and be assured that these courageous teachers in Connecticut and the precious little ones are now with Him and discovering all that is newly theirs. As the father of one of the little ones we lost said – “They beat us to paradise”.
Lord, thank You for lives of these teachers and students. We pray for your healing hand on these families, school staff and students. Help the first responders to cope with the images that will surely stay with them forever. Heal our broken hearts. Help us find forgiveness and the right words to explain this to our children so that You are glorified even in this unspeakable and miserable tragedy. We pray this in the name of Jesus, who is the Christ. Amen.
God bless all involved with this horrific crime!
