Pray for Boston

Shared this basic message with the folks of our congregation, Saint Matthew Lutheran Church in Logan, Ohio, a short time ago:
Let's continue to pray for the victims of yesterday's violence in Boston, asking for healing for those harmed by the bomb blasts and comfort to the families of those whose loved ones were killed. 

Please also pray for wisdom, insight, and safety for law enforcement officials as they investigate the crime. 

Finally, please pray that God will empower the Church everywhere to share the Good News of new and everlasting life for all who repent for sin and believe in Jesus Christ. Absent the transformation of heart, mind, and will that only Jesus Christ gives to those with faith in Him, the inborn sinfulness of humanity will only encourage such horrible acts. Our only hope is Jesus Christ.

That's because only the good news of Jesus can change sinners from enemies of God to friends of God!
