Praying for a sister church

Please join me in praying for FBC Maryville, Illinois. This church is not very far from St. Louis. They lost their Pastor yesterday to a gun man who just came into the church and shot the Pastor. Here is my prayer for them. Please join me in praying:

"Father, we lift up the family of Rev. Winters. Please comfort his wife and children, and also the church family at First Baptist of Maryville. Lord, we also pray for the gun man, that he will come to know you. We also lift up his family and the other families of the ones who were injured. We know that you will bring good out of this tragic situation. In Jesus Name, Amen."

What a tragedy....my heart sincerly goes out to all those church members and his family and friends. Who would have ever expected that? We must try to live each day as though it is our last.
May the Lord bless and comfort everyone affected by this horrible event and may His perfect will be recognized as the days and weeks pass......
