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,

Jesus Christ died so that we might live with Him forever. Learn more about who He is, and what He has done for you and for me, here.
