Surviving and Healing from the Aurora Theater Shooting; Prayer for the Grieving and Traumatized
Our love and prayers are with the people of Aurora, Colorado and those who lost friends and family members in the theater shooting this week. We also extend our prayers to the first responders and emergency personnel, as well as all who are grieving in the aftermath of this senseless tragedy.
“If God is good, why would he allow this to happen in the first place.”
If you are ready to seek God’s help, pray this prayer:
Dear Lord,I give you my wounded, broken heart, please restore it with life, and eventually even joy.(Now, put your hand on your heart and pray the following:)I canceled the assignment of the spirit of trauma that would hold me captive, and I speak God’s peace, life, and hope into my very soul in it’s place. I also cancel the assignment of the spirit of suicide that would attempt to make me another casualty of this terrible evil. I choose to be a victor in God’s love, and ask that God ignite my spirit with life, purpose, and love. I pray this in the power and authority of the name and the blood of Jesus.Amen.
