Florida School

Dear Lord, 

I’m so glad when I attended church on Sunday that the Pastor gave a memorial & song for the Florida students & teachers who were killed in last week’s attack.  We pray for the families & friends of those passed away to bring Comfort & Peace & holy remembrance of Your Compassion & Love, and fond memories of their loved ones.

May we hold our days as precious time to do Your will while we are on earth.  And help us to share our love & knowledge of You with everyone we know so they can have Your Peace (John 14:27).
