Pray for the Victims in Texas, United States

A deadly mass shooting took place on 5 November 2017 in Texas.

A gunman opened fire inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs on Sunday. 26 people were killed and 20 were injured in the attack, ranging in age from 5 to 72 years old. Victims included a pregnant woman and the pastor’s young daughter. The suspect was later found dead inside his vehicle.

The Hong Kong Christian Council asks that the Hong Kong churches earnestly pray for the victims in Texas. May the Lord comfort and aid especially those grieving the tragic loss of loved ones and those in shock over this senseless violence in the house of God. O, Lord, extend your mercy and care to those suffering in body, mind, and spirit and be with the victims in the hospital undergoing surgery for critical wounds. In dark times such as these, may they experience the support and love of the whole community and may the country be more united and determined to stop gun violence and to work for peace and justice for all.
