Watch Focus: Pray for Charleston

Friday, Jun 19, 2015 We pray for Charleston, SC where nine innocent people were killed during a prayer service at the historic Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. This massacre on Wednesday night is the deadliest attack in the United States on a place of worship in 24 years. 

Let us lift up the families who are enduring gravest heartache at the loss of their loved ones. May the Spirit of God comfort the congregation of Emmanuel AME Church. May the peace, calm, and comfort of our Lord Jesus surround the entire Charleston community and the state of South Carolina. 

We were touched by the words of the mayor of Columbia, SC, a neighboring city: “This hurts friends…Let’s please remain in constant prayer. There is power in prayer. The devil is real, but God is in control.” 

2 Cor. 1:3-4, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

Romans 8:38-39, “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

2 Sam. 22:5-7; Psalm 34:18; Psalm 91:1-2; 2 Cor. 4:16-18; John 14:27; Job 36:15
