Prayer, Plain and Simple

Prayer for Something Good from Something Horrid

“God, you are good, but not everything that happens in your world is. The horror of the massacre in Newtown, Connecticut was evil. Evil is real. We need no other evidence than this. Not all is good, but you in your goodness and power can work all things together for good. You can redeem and restore, even the darkest terrors. Somehow, work good from this. Somehow. We cannot imagine how anything from heaven can be from this hell. But you are able. You are willing. We humble ourselves and ask for recovery. In Jesus.”
