    Arizona Massacre, Prayer for Giffords Victims: The Spiritual Answer for America’s Tragedies

    First and foremost, we pray for the Arizona victims and we are sorry for the lost of those who did not live.   We pray for Gabrielle Giffords and that God gives her strength and completely heals her, so that not only she will come back and be able to do her work as a politician, but also be an example and witness for the miracle God performed in her life, even in a near death experience.   For the families of the victims, we send our prayers out to them and pray that God gives them strength in their time of sorrow and bereavement.   Last, but not least, we pray for the shooter, Jared Lee Loughner who admits he is an atheist.  We pray that he surrenders his soul to Jesus Christ and repent for the multiple crimes he has committed.   No doubt, he will be on death row and we pray Mr. Loughner does not deny God’s existence and surrender his life over to Him, before it is everlasting too late.
