"There is swearing, deception, murder, stealing and adultery, they employ violence so that bloodshed follows bloodshed. Therefore the land mourns and everyone who lives in it languishes" (Hosea 4:2-3a).
Let us all take some time to pray for the families grieving over such horrific sudden loss of their loved ones. We mourn and languish with them. In times like these, it is the task of the politician to attempt to legitimize ways to decrease such instances. It is the task of law enforcement to attempt new means and methods to discover and disrupt future attacks. But as people of God, we hold a power that the world cannot offer. We have a God who hears and who acts on behalf of those prayers. If ever a change is needed, it's now and prayer changes things.
