Broken Hearts: Shootings at Schools

My heart is broken over the shootings in Florida- of babies  ( yes those teens are someone’s baby) being sent to school to study, to laugh, …. and parents believing that their child is reasonably safe. Now as a result of evil there are broken hearts. Hurting and angry hearts. Lord have mercy.

Let us pray to stay the hand of shootings and violence in our nation This is the 18th school shooting. Lord we need thee and we call upon you. Psalm 145:18. Then after we pray and continue to pray,arise let us take righteous action to stop and address this evil.

Pray for the families at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County, Florida.

We want to pray proactively and using the Word of God as a source of our prayer. See how one pastor suggest we pray against the  violence.

5 Ways Christians Should Pray Following a Mass Shooting Dr. Jeremy Roberts, Pastor                         

The mass school shooting that took place in South Florida was a tragic act of violence that shows demonic activity is alive. This shooting was purely from Satan. It was anti-God. It was evil. We have a desperate need for God’s peace. (If you’ve been away from the news cycle, here are the details.)

 

Now is the time to turn to God in prayer. I encourage you to pray through several Psalms as you process what happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County, Florida.

 

How Should You Pray, in Response to the Shooting?

 

  1. Pray for God’s peace and comfort to fall upon all affected. (Pray Psalm 86:17)

 

Show me a sign of your favor, that those who hate me may see and be put to shame because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.

 

  1. Pray that this trend of school and church shootings would cease, via the power of God and wisdom of police and security experts. (Pray Psalm 11:5)

 

The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.

 

  1. Pray that American politicians would unite in the midst of this tragedy and work together to lead a safer country instead of fighting and blaming. Pray that politicians would not seek to destroy their “political enemies” in the heat of this proverbial summer. (Pray Psalm 32:3-4)

 

For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah

 

  1. Pray that Christians would respond to this in compassionate ways instead of using this event to merely push opinions of gun control. (Pray Psalm 116:5)

 

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; our God is merciful.

 

  1. Pray for a sweeping revival to come to America. We must come back to God. (Pray Psalm 9:9)

 

The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.

Cry Out in United Prayer: Prayers for Back to School Children and Youth

Cry Out in United Prayer: Prayers for Back to School Children and Youth by Linda Fegins

Pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to him for the lives of your children” (Lam. 2:19)

School has started. We need to consistently pray for our children, parents, teachers, the school board and the entire school system. Through prayer, families, our children’s lives, and our world can be changed. God will show us how to use the power that believers have within through the power of the Holy Spirit to transform our schools and deliver them from violence, disorganization, and poor administration. Through united consistent prayer, God will give us the power, wisdom, knowledge, and creativity to solve the many school problems that plague our city schools and school board. Through prayer the right leaders will arise to enable the community to come together to take productive and strategic action to transform our educational system and our schools.

Yes, our educational system can be changed significantly. It will be changed by two important actions. Our public school system can and will be changed by united and individual prayer, then by our obedience when God calls believers and intercessors as I say “to put feet on their prayers” and to take strategic action.

Let’s pray that a movement of prayer is rising up in revival-like proportions within schools by the students, parents and the administration. I pray that many student-led prayer groups are springing up in middle and senior high schools. Let’s pray for better test results, higher graduation results, teachers with a zeal for teaching and the spirit of excellence, safe environments, and the cessation of violence and bullying in the public schools.

Can prayer change public schools? Yes, back to school prayers and prayer period can. Believe it!

Parents and the community need to unite in prayer in our neighborhoods and on the school grounds to serve as prayer warriors who battle in the spiritual realm for the lives of children and teenagers as they go off to school and colleges for at least a half hour to one hour every week. Let’s challenge ourselves to daily pray for the safety of our children and that God will deliver them from evil and thwart every scheme of the enemy. Lord we pray that you cover the children and youth through the blood and “stay the hand of violence against the children and staff of the school. Dismantle any plan to bring harm to them. Expose any weapon brought on the school premises and render it harmless”.( from Power-Packed Prayers for Public Schools by Ida Rose Heckard).

Pray for the school your child attends as you drive your child to school .Pray for a school in your neighborhood. Encourage your children to pray for their school and teachers.

Here’s a prayer for the safety of your children and a prayer to help them with achievement.

Pray More . Cry Out. Sound the Alarm.

Daily prayers will diminish your cares. More things are wrougt by prayer than this world knows. Alfred Lord Tenneyson.

Evening, and morning , and at noon, will I pray and cry aloud; and he shall hear my voice Psalm 55:17

Pray for household salvation for family, friends, your boss, co-workers and the next door neighbor you cannot stand. Pray for salvation for those who are lost and do not know Christ. Our prayers will cause the Spirit of God to draw them to Himself. In Revolution on Our Knees: 30 Days of Prayer for Neighbors and Nations by David and Kim Butts they urgently stress “Consider how many people are lost to the prince of darkness because no one has prayed that their lives would respond to a beckoning Father? I have no doubt that prayer is the front line strategy for missions. We may never know until heaven how many lives have been opened to receive Christ because of our prayers”.

Pray for the deliverance from violence that steals the lives of our children and families. In major cities our children and youth have suffered violence. We continue to pray for the children and teachers who lives were violently taken at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton , Connecticut. Pray for the mother in Chicago who has lost four sons to violence and death. Four sons ! You are devasted by one! Lord , we should be crying out like the mourning women in the Bible. In Jeremiah 9:17 it states”This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Consider now! Call for the wailing women to come; send for the most skillful of them”.

The children of Israel were about to be taken in bondage to Babylon. The prophet Jeremiah said send for the mourning women. They were to weep and wail and to mourn in sackcloth. Their purpose what to be an alarm system to wake up everybody around them. They were to call out, the devil is destroying us! Death is on its way! They were God’s warning shout to His people. These mouring women were to use the power of prayer and wailing before the Lord to destroy the power of Satan over God’s people by waking them up and calling them to a mourning of repentance. Today you- mother, sister, daughter or father can join in corporate prayer to open your mouth and cry out and pray against the evil of violence. Then when we hear the Lord’s direction, we can get up and put “feet on our prayers” to do what He tells us to do.
