Prayer List

I came across a list of suggestions that you can use to guide your prayers in light of last Friday's tragedy in Connecticut. 

The Christian Post has issued a prayer list for those wanting to pray specifically for the needs of those affected by the Sandy Hook school shooting last week.
  1. Pray for emotional healing for the families and friends of the people killed in this massacre.
  2. Pray for the victims familes to get the emotional, spiritual and financial support they will need to rebuild their lives.
  3. Pray for school officials as they appoint a new principal and possibly other school personnel.
  4. Pray that the missing persons will be found safe.
  5. Pray that no one will imitate Lanza's actions and attempt copycat killings.
  6. Pray for people with mental illness to be healed or to be able to cope with their illness and find the help they need.
I would add a few others:
  • Pray that many will turn to Jesus during this tragic time. Jesus is our only hope.
  • Pray for the church's as the minister and reach out to those who are hurting. Pray that they will make much of Jesus.
