Page 275 began with a beautiful star-filled sky greeting me on my way out the door this morning. It wasn’t long, however, until I began to hear and see reports of the horrific attack that took place in Las Vegas overnight. While my day was a somewhat normal Monday, those directly affected by the shooting occupied much of my thoughts and prayer time throughout the day. So instead of the normal rundown of my day and the lessons seen in it, today’s page is dedicated in prayer, and as a call to prayer, for the families mourning the loss of a loved one, those injured and in need of physical healing, those in shock and disbelief who need an emotional healing, and a nation that is in need of a spiritual healing before we decide that destroying one another is normal. And so I post some words and a photo I shared earlier today and I ask each of you to “keep on praying and never give up.”
No words, or even prayers, seem adequate in response to the horrific attack in Las Vegas, but silence seems even more inadequate so I pray for those who mourn, for those who are injured and in need of healing, and for a people in shock and disbelief.
