Praying with James Nesbit…October 3, 2017
Heavenly Father, on this 256th day of Donald Trumps Presidency, we are thanking for your comfort to all of those who lost loved ones in Las Vegas, and the wounded who need Your merciful touch.
I felt today that we should magnify President Trumps words from yesterday.
“My fellow Americans, we are joined together today in sadness, shock and grief. Last night a gunman opened fire on a large crowd at a country music concert in Las Vegas, Nevada. He brutally murdered more than 50 people, and wounded hundreds more. It was an act of pure evil.
The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are working closely with local authorities to assist with the investigation, and they will provide updates as to the investigation and how it developes.
“I want to thank the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and all the first responders for their courageous efforts, and for helping to save the lives of so many. The speed with which they acted is miraculous, and prevented further loss of life. To have found the shooter so quickly after the first shots were fired is something for which we will always be thankful and grateful. It shows what true professionalism is all about.”
(Father, we lift up a roar of thanksgiving for all those serving in law enforcement in our nation, thank You for keeping them safe, and bless them and their families beyond measure.)
“Hundreds of our fellow citizens are now mourning the sudden loss of a loved one. A parent, a child, a brother or sister. We cannot fathom their pain, we cannot imagine their loss. To the families of the victims, we are praying for you and we are here for you, and we ask God to help see you through his very dark period. Scripture teaches us the Lord is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit. We seek comfort in those words, for we know that God lives in the hearts of those who grieve. ”
(Father, we join in whole hearted agreement with these precious words, that point to You and Your goodness, released by our President.)
“To the wounded who are now recovering in hospitals, we are praying for a full and speedy recovery, and pledge to you our support from this day forward.”
(Father, we appropriate the healing power of blood of the Son on their behalf. Thank You for releasing creative miracles where needed.)
“In memory of the fallen, I have directed that our great flag be flown at half-staff. I will be visiting Las Vegas on Wednesday to meet with law enforcement, first responders and the families of the victims.”
(Father, we thank You for being so present with our President as he visits those affected by this tragedy, thank You for supernatural comfort beyond measure being poured upon grieving hearts.)
“In moments of tragedy and horror, America comes together as one. And it always has. We call upon the bonds that unite us: our faith, our family, and our shared values. We call upon the bonds of citizenship, the ties of community, and the comfort of our common humanity. Our unity cannot be shattered by evil. Our bonds cannot be broken by violence. And though we feel such great anger at the senseless murder of our fellow citizens, it is our love that defines us today, and always will forever. ”
(Thank You Father, for causing the fire, the winds, the hurricane, and even this horrible pain, to ignite a transforming awakening throughout the land.)
“In times such as these, I know we are searching for some kind of meaning in the chaos, some kind of light in the darkness. The answers do not come easy. But we can take solace knowing that even the darkest space can be brightened by a single light, and even the most terrible despair can be illuminated by a single ray of hope.”
(Yes Lord, we are thanking You for releasing a supernatural outpouring, of blood bought illuminating light, bathing every bloodline and family tree in our nation with fullness of revelation concerning Jesus Christ .)
“Melania and I are praying for every American who has been hurt, wounded or lost the ones they loved so dearly in this terrible, terrible attack. We pray for the entire nation to find unity and peace, and we pray for the day when evil is banished and the innocent are safe from hatred and from fear. May God bless the souls of the lives that are lost, may God give us the grace of healing, and may God provide the grieving families with strength to carry on. Thank you, God bless America.”Tweet
