Prayer, Plain and Simple

“God, have mercy. The horror of the massacre in Newtown, Connecticut has broken our hearts. Perhaps now we are broken enough to turn to you. Forgive our self-reliance, rebellion and pride. We have defied your name and blasphemed you by destroying your most precious creation. We permit the killing of children in the womb, then stand by in confused horror and wonder when they are killed at gunpoint. We have banished you from our schools, then scream out for your salvation when the Devil himself breaks down the doors schools… to steal, kill and destroy. Forgive us our arrogance to believe the lie that we are free to curse you to your face, then call and expect you to race to our rescue. Jesus, have mercy on our souls.”
