I pray for Uvalde Tx. My heart is broken. I pray for those who lost their loved ones and others that are affected by this tragedy. Prayer for all of our loved ones to be safe and for all evil to stay away from them.
I feel for what the parents are going through in losing their child. My youngest went home to be with the Lord 3 years ago on May 26. Very unexpected, went to sleep and did not wake up. The Lord has given me Psalm 18 as I walk through this;
1 I love you, LORD, my strength.
2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I called to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I have been saved from my enemies.
6 In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.
16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters.
18 the LORD was my support.
19 He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.
25 To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
26 to the pure you show yourself pure, but to the devious you show yourself shrewd.
27 You save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty.
28 You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.
29 With your help I can advance against a troop ; with my God I can scale a wall.
30 As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.
31 For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God?
32 It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.
33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights.
34 He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
35 You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great.
36 You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.
46 The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior!
49 Therefore I will praise you, LORD, I will sing the praises of your name.
50 he shows unfailing love to his anointed, to David and to his descendants forever.
