#PrayersForTexas Shooting

As many of you know, this past Saturday (August 31st, 2019), an armed gunman shot seemingly randomly at passersby between the towns of Midland and Odessa. At least 7 people were killed, and 21 others were injured. As news continues to flood in, I will try my hardest to keep this post updated.


Do you know Jesus?
It’s the truth: the end is near. Do you know where you’ll be after this life ends? Learn more about Jesus, who is the only way to heaven, here.


Please pray with me over those affected by this cowardly, horrific tragedy:

  • For the families of those hurt and killed in this tragedy to find comfort.
  • That the local churches in this area would open their doors to serve, support, and love those who have gone through this hell.
  • That people would be protected by Christ in such a dangerous, violent world.

Thank you.
