Prayers for Our Friends in Boston & Texas



Update: Lisa here, requesting additional prayers for all of those who lost their lives and loved ones in West, Texas. We will resume normal publishing on Monday and appreciate your prayers during this time of loss. LMH

This morning, our country is on edge, praying with and for our friends in Massachusetts as we watch a week of tragedy and terror unfold.

In light of the events of the week and in order for all of us to focus on prayer for the safety of the law enforcement officers and the souls of those who have been lost, I am electing to suspend our normal publication schedule on through Monday. As we watch the bravery of our Boston friends, it feels somehow wrong to continue things here with “business as usual”.

Please join me today in prayer and feel free to leave your comments and prayers below.

May God continue to protect those who so valiantly serve to keep us secure. May the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.

  1. Cathy Harrell on

    Please also offer a prayer for those in West, Texas – 14 bodies have been found. I am sure there will be a few more. And so many physical and emotional injuries. More than 50 homes destroyed. The prayer service at the Catholic church was heartbreaking. There has been little media attention because of Boston, but it has been a very sad week on both places.

  2. Praying for all the victims, their families, and everyone who helped the people of Boston. I was born and raised in the Boston area and there is no place like it. I am heartbroken to watch my city go through the events of this past week. The only bright light was seeing all the good that came from such a tragedy.

    Praying for the people of Texas too. Our country is suffering right along with them as well.
