IMPORTANT!!! Please read thisfollowing post and start praying hard about Congress not going into the take all US Guns out of circulation mode and vote irrationally and emotionally because we all know that the communist libs in the Democrat Party and RINO’s in the Republican Party are going to be all over this opportunity.
Remember what Rahm Emanuel said:
“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
You can count on it, they’ll use this to come after your guns!
(Please note: From now on, I will NOT be including links to the succeeding posts on the previous BM posts as I have done on the first 4 BM posts. It is too time consuming to go back and edit all those previous posts, which now number 5, including this one. However, on every one of the latest BM posts that I will be posting in the future, you will find a complete list of links to all the previous BM posts.

|Special Prayer Alert|
Massacre in Aurora, Colorado
Saturday, July 21, 2012
“Comfort, comfort my people,” says your God. (Isaiah 40:1)
Mass Shooting at Colorado Movie Theater:
12 People Dead; 58 Remain Hospitalized
The suspect, James Holmes, 24, of Aurora, was caught by police in the parking lot of the Century 16 Movie Theaters, nine miles outside Denver, after police began receiving dozens of 911 calls at 12:39 a.m. MT. Police said the man appeared to have acted alone.
Witnesses in the movie theater said Holmes crashed into the auditorium through an emergency exit about 30 minutes into the film, set off a smoke bomb, and began shooting. Holmes stalked the aisles of the theater, shooting people at random, as panicked movie-watchers in the packed auditorium tried to escape, witnesses said.
“You just smelled smoke and you just kept hearing it, you just heard bam bam bam, non-stop. The gunman never had to reload. Shots just kept going, kept going, kept going,” one witness told ABC News.
“I’m with coworkers and we’re on the floor praying to God we don’t get shot, and the gunshots continue on and on, and when the sound finally stopped, we started to get up and people were just bleeding,” another theatergoer said.
Police said 10 victims died inside the theater, while dozens of others were taken to local hospitals, including a child as young as 6 years old. (Yahoo News)
- From a Prayer Partner in Colorado:
“Thank you for your prayers for the families of the victims, for the salvation of those who committed these crimes, that these crimes not be used for political purposes, and for many to be saved unto Yeshua, Jesus Christ because of these massacres.”
- Father, we pray, too, and ask that YOU place a HEDGE around this event, so that NO COPYCATS are attempted this weekend or ever again! We ask for Your Hand of Mercy to be upon us all, in Jesus’ Wonderful Name, amen.
- ” . . . ‘This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt’?” (Job 38:11)
“You set a boundary they cannot cross . . . “ (Psalm 104:9)
At the Queen of Peace Roman Catholic church in Aurora, a few miles from the shooting, more than 1,000 mourners gathered Friday evening for a memorial Mass. Newly installed Denver Archbishop Samuel Aquila told mourners dabbing their eyes, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
He said, “The heart of our Father is stronger than the bullets that killed 12 people.”
Near the entrance to the theater’s parking lot, a makeshift memorial of 12 candles sat in a row near piles of flowers. Up the hill, about 20 pastors led an emotional vigil for about 350 people, some hugging and crying. (Read more)
We thank You that You are a God of compassion, and that You have promised to be Jehovah Shammah, the “God Who is present” with us in our griefs and hard places. We ask that You would use this situation to bring these people to You, as their Saviour, their Healer, their Comforter, and Giver of Life eternal. We pray for the gunman, whom You also love, that somehow he would seek and find salvation and forgiveness in You. We ask these things in the Name of Yeshua, our Saviour. Amen.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” (2 Corinthians 1:2,3)
Grad school dropout James Holmes ‘not on anybody’s radar’
The 24-year-old man who police say walked into a Colorado movie theater and sprayed patrons with gunfire is a grad school dropout who grew up in San Diego and had only one known brush with the law – a traffic ticket last year.
Tall and dark-haired, James Egan Holmes stared clear-eyed at the camera in a 2004 high school yearbook snapshot, wearing a white junior varsity soccer uniform — No. 16. The son of a nurse, Arlene, and a software company manager, Robert, James Holmes was a brilliant science scholar in college.
But Friday morning just past midnight, police say Holmes burst into the crowded Century 16 movie theaters in Aurora, Colo., where the Batman movie “The Dark Knight Returns” was being shown and opened fire with three guns, killing at least 12 and injuring scores.
What snapped in the neuroscience student’s brain is unclear. Jackie Mitchell, a furniture mover who lives several blocks from the suspect’s apartment building in Colorado, said he had drinks with Holmes at a local bar on Tuesday night, though he gave no sign of being distressed or violent.
After Holmes approached him “we just talked about football. He had a backpack and geeky glasses and seemed like a real intelligent guy, and I figured he was one of the college students,” Mitchell said.
When Mitchell saw Holmes’ photo after the shooting, “the hair stood up on my back,” he said. “I know this guy.”
Mitchell also said Holmes seemed smart, with a “swagger.”
Holmes, who is in police custody and is reportedly no longer cooperating with authorities, appears to have meticulously planned the horrific attack, booby-trapping his apartment near the Aurora, Colo., with what police described as “incendiary and chemical devices” equipped with sophisticated tripwires. At the cinema, he entered through a fire door he’d previously left open and then set off some sort of explosive before opening fire with multiple guns, including an AR-15 assault rifle, a shotgun and at least one .40-caliber Glock handgun.
Holmes, who was dressed in black and wearing a protective vest, was arrested by his car outside the movie theater minutes after the attack. Holmes did not resist cops and reportedly told them his apartment – just four miles from the theater and within view of Children’s Hospital, where some of his victims were taken – was rigged to kill.
Police say the attack is not tied to terrorism and have thus far have provided no motive. Holmes’ only known brush with authorities was a speeding ticket issued last October. Federal law enforcement sources told USA Today Holmes “was not on anybody’s radar.”
“Our hearts go out to those who were involved in this tragedy and to the families and friends of those involved,” Holmes’ family said in a written statement Friday. “We ask that the media respect our privacy during this difficult time.” (Fox News)
We lift up all the families who are suffering from this horrific act by James Holmes. Continue to comfort all those who have lost their loved ones. According to Luke 4, You deliver those who are downtrodden, crushed, and broken down by this calamity. Deliver these families and the community from all the grief they are experiencing. We ask this prayer in Jesus Name, amen.
Colorado police focus on shooting suspect’s booby-trapped home
We also ask that any and all evidence that might have prevented this young, deranged man from carrying out his violent agenda be revealed, so that actions might be taken in the future to prevent another massacre. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
- ” . . whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open.” (Mark 4:22)
“Tragedy and the Hope We Have”
Bobbie Hill, Colorado Springs, CO
I’m heavy-hearted as I write to you in the wake of the second tragedy in our area in a month. Our missions team out here at the Los Angeles Dream Center was shocked and saddened with you all this morning at the news of the horriffic tragedy last night in Aurora. Please take some time today to pray for the families of those twelve who were killed and for the dozens more who were wounded. Let me offer some coaching on how we might pray together in response:
- Pray for a revelation of God’s redeeming love to the families of the 12 deceased. Pray that the God of all comfort, mercy, and compassion would himself strengthen them, encourage them, and give them hope.
- Pray for God’s healing power in the bodies and hearts of the 50 people who were wounded, many critically. Ask God to demonstrate his sovereign power and tender mercy by intervening and touching these people right where they are today. Ask in faith for miracles of healing to the glory of God.
- Pray that God would draw people to Jesus in the wake of tragedy through the outpouring of his power and compassion. Ask that, in the midst of this great darkness, Jesus’ light would shine brightly.
- Pray with the authority Jesus has given you to bind the spirits that blind people’s minds from the truth. Insofar as we know our enemy is not flesh and blood, take authority over the Denver area in Jesus’ name, canceling Satan’s lies, deception, and destruction in people’s lives. Resist the enemy in the name of Jesus and know that he must flee.
If you know anyone who was directly affected by this tragedy, please let me know right away–you can simply reply to this email. Where there are hurting, hopeless people in the Denver metro region, I want our church to be there. We are ambassadors of Jesus, and in dark times we must shine the brightest with our Savior’s steadfast love. What a privilege and what a responsibility that our Lord said, “You are the light of the world.”
This Sunday we will take some time to pray for our city and those affected by the Aurora tragedy in particular. We’ll also address the hard questions that follow: What darkness, what hopelessness compels a person to such reckless hate? How do we respond to such senseless violence and the devastation it leaves for families and communities after the news cameras go away? Where is Jesus in the midst of horrors like these?
I know you are all busy, but I hope you’ll prioritize coming together on Sunday to seek God and consider what it means to be his people in the face of a world that desperately needs Him. Remember, friends, that our hope is in Jesus; he is a sure and steadfast anchor for your soul. It is only the presence of God–the glorious, transforming presence of God which Jesus makes available to us–that can heal our city.
Mauri and I love you all very much and we thank God for you. May He draw you close to himself as you seek him today . . .
Gun Control Legislation: Frank Lautenberg Readies Bill
And now, Sen. Lautenberg has taken the action, below.
Please join us in prayer today that the 100 members of the United States Senate weigh carefully their votes on gun control legislation — or treaties — before taking their stand. May we not be contolled by a spirit of fear, but of love and of power and of sound mind. – The Editor
But several lawmakers have demanded that the government not shy about tackling the legislative issue. Mayor Michael Bloomberg set the tone when he urged the two presidential candidates to outline their policies with respect to federal gun laws. And now, Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s (D-N.J.) office is saying that he plans to reintroduce legislation that would curtail the ability of a shooter to fire at length without reloading.
“If reports are correct and a high-capacity gun magazine was used to commit these awful murders, Senator Lautenberg will absolutely renew his effort to limit the availability of this dangerous firearm attachment,” Lautenberg’s communications director Caley Gray told The Huffington Post.
Lautenberg, one of the most vocal gun control advocates in the Senate, introduced a bill to limit high-capacity magazines following the shooting of former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. The shooter in that instance fired his gun more than 30 times without having to reload. The bill went nowhere.
Early reports have suggested that the accused shooter in Aurora, James Holmes, also used a high-capacity magazine on his assault rifle. And that alone could breathe new political life into the New Jersey Democrat’s legislative hopes. (The Huffington Post) Read more.
But above those skies, there remains brilliant sunshine . . .
Our hope and our prayer today as we close this Special Alert is that, even as we remain in prayer for the families of the victims, for healing for the survivors, and for the salvation of many who need to invite Jesus Christ into their lives, that this incident not be used as an excuse to abrogate the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution: the right to bear arms.
If you feel as we do, then please be prepared to contact your own member of Congress and the two senators who serve your state, early next week, to express your views. Please be kind and keep your remarks brief. Together, let’s fight for our right to bear arms and to defend our individual and national freedom, at all cost. Thank you.
