Hollywood Prayer Network - 7/23

Posted in Arts/Entertainment/Sports. Hits: 2691

Dear HPN members,
We don't usually send emails other than our monthly Prayer newsletter, but we feel that this is important for us to be praying this time FROM Hollywood to a city in America.  So, would you join us in praying for the people affected by the horrible shooting in Aurora, Colorado that occurred in a movie theatre, during a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises". We need prayers not only for the people creating movies, but also for the audience watching movies.  Thank you for praying this prayer with us:

Dear God,
We are grieved over the shootings in Aurora, Colorado at The Dark Knight Rises screening. Lord, we ask that

You put Your hand on the people who were shot and heal them. Would You comfort the family members and friends of the people who were killed and wounded?  We trust You, God, to somehow turn this into good for everyone involved and to replace fear with peace and Your love.  Just like many of the people in the movie theatre who were crying out to You, we realize how much we need You and Your strength at times like this when we are totally out of control. We pray for James Holmes, the 24 year old gunman. Lord, we know the power of the movies and ask that people are discerning in what they watch and that movies will not be used again as influences for evil, but they be used to lift up the human spirit, to inspire people and to show what is good, beautiful and truthful in the world. Lord, let us experience Your unconditional love at this time. Amen
