Loss in our Community

I woke up this morning to a lot of facebook messages regarding an officer shooting where I live.... then I saw it on the news... and heard it made national news... then I found out that of the 6 people injured/killed I know people who know atleast half of them. So very sad... so heartbreaking.

Here is the news article:

Father God, I come to you on behalf of the officers who were shot... for those injured and the one who lost his life. I pray for their healing. I pray they feel comfort and support from You. I pray for their families and friends, I can't imagine what they are going through. They make a daily sacrifice for us and I am so grateful for their service.  Lord, none of this makes sense. It's heartbreaking, but I know that you have a plan for all this and I trust in You. I say these things in Jesus' name, amen.

Thank you for that prayer, Lisa. My brother-in-law is a police officer in another city, but trained with the officer who was killed, and he is devastated. I'm so thankful my BiL doesn't do patrol anymore. I'm always so scared of him getting hurt in the line of duty.
