    Our prayer for the families and loved ones of the victims and injured in the mass shooting that took place in Uvalde is that the Holy Spirit will transform this tragedy which was meant to kill, inflict suffering, and destroy families into an occasion for ministry, unity, and support for the community of Uvalde and its victims. We lift up the families that lost their loved ones, the children who were injured, the family of the shooter, the school staff, first responders, and everyone touched by this tragedy that they may positively receive the out-pouring of God´s abundant grace, mercy, and love during this time, and that they may feel God´s embrace and peace as they pass through this valley of sorrow and grief. Our prayer is for healing, forgiveness, and restoration to take place in the hearts of all touched by this mass shooting in Uvalde and beyond. Dear God in Jesus Christ´s name bring peace, and healing to this community and to our land. Amen.
