ISAIAH 62 PRAYER MINISTRY

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.”
(Isaiah 58:6-9, NIV)

Honoring the Victims of the Virginia Beach Municipal Center Shooting

Dear Friends,

I just wanted to take a minute to honor the 12 people who passed away last Friday, May 31st, in a shooting in the Virginia Beach Municipal Center building in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Each of these people were precious in Jesus’ sight, and they deserve to be remembered.

Please pray with me, as these people’s loved ones now have to live their lives without them.

“Dear Jesus,
You are God alone. Though we don’t understand why these things happen, we choose to trust You.
Please be so near to the families of these 12 people… we pray that You would comfort them, and that they would allow You to comfort and strengthen them.
You are unstoppable, Jesus. Please bring good even out of such anguish and tragedy.
In Jesus’ Name we pray,
Amen.”
