“So much pain and suffering, I pray God does a Romans 8:28.”
God bless, Anon
“Instead of turning away from my faith such atrocities reinforce my Christian beliefs because l know that the perpetrators (like us all) will one day face the Divine court. People do not have to believe in Christ, His Return and His Final Judgement for Him to be true. My heart goes out to Manchester.”
“I pray The Grace for Today reading yesterday which was Numbers 6:24-26. Every blessing on everyone involved.”
“Our Father God, please pour out your grace & mercy on the people of Manchester. Cause this tragedy to draw the people of Manchester and the UK close to You, in the name of Jesus – Amen.“
Bob from Kingston
“Lord Jesus, we are hurting, angry and deeply saddened by this awful bombing. My prayer is for those in the emergency services who faced unimaginable horrors. Be with them Father, send them support and gifts please. Jesus we know you wept at death in the Bible and we know you weep with us today. Your will be done Father, Amen.”
Jennifer from Southampton
“I agree with all in prayer, for all hurting souls in Manchester and for those who died- especially justice to those who had caused this pain.”
“This is what I read last night and this morning. John 16:33 ‘I have told you these things so that IN ME you may have peace. In the works you will have trouble. But take heart I have overcome the world.’ In Psalm 27 verse 13, the end it says this, ‘ I will remain confident in this. I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Verse 14, ‘wait for the LORD, be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD’. I pray that Gods goodness will shine through the bleakness of this time.“
Chrissi from Aberdeen
“Prayers and thoughts with the families and friends of those affected by the attack in the Manchester Arena. I take comfort from the verse in Psalm 34:18, “The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” It has been a real help in the midst of tragedy, that God is with us, even when life is at its most challenging.”
Linda and Stuart
“Here is Isaiah 66 verse 13, ‘as a mother comforts her children, so I will comfort you’ GOD bless”
