Prayer for the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas


Heavenly Father,

We praise You alone as the Creator of heaven and earth, sovereign over all things above and below. In the midst of our brokenness and broken world, we grieve with You against the offenses our sinful state creates. We are brokenhearted with the tragedy that has come to First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. At Wightman UMC we join in collective prayer for the families affected by loss of loved ones and those recovering from sustained injuries. We pray this church and their families will feel Your Mighty Presence, strength and comfort in powerful ways. In the midst of evil, we proclaim that You alone are good, pure, and perfect. We pray that Your ways – love and mercy – prevail, especially in these times.
