Shut Ya Mouth and Pray (For the children) Pt 1

http://www.cnn.com/2015/11/05/us/chicago-tyshawn-lee-shooting/

The above link was sent to me by a friend in a text messaging group chat. After reading, my heart dropped into the pit of my stomach. I could walk on the ocean floor. Someone blew out the light of the sun. The stars were unplugged from God’s socket. All I could think was, “How do you execute a helpless child?”

This is not a hood movie classic. This is life.

As a parent, I don’t know how the parents are functioning. The father must be blaming himself. My prayers immediately went out to the grieving family. This is not a race issue. This isn’t even evidence to support gun control arguments. This is about a life that was extinguished. Someone’s baby is gone.

Every Sunday¬† (I’ll try to be consistent) I will post a prayer reflection.¬† No matter what your spiritual path or doctrine you identify with, please join me as a prayer warrior and make a change in this world. We can’t just talk about it. Prayer is action. Shut Ya Mouth and Pray. Open your heart.

This song always encourages me

To Our Creator:
Please protect our children. Please let us cherish every moment we have with them. They are our chance at a righteous future for this world. Protect their innocence. Build their self esteem. Show them their value. Keep them safe.
Help us to forgive our enemies. Help us to move forward and heal. Help us to pray when we feel weak. Amen.
