Prayers for Parkland, Florida

Sometimes when tragedy strikes, there are no answers. Yet as people of faith, we can trust God to be with us—and we can pray alone and together for comfort, for hope, and for the faith to keep trusting God.

Pray for the families and friends of the victims of the violence that occurred today at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. If you like, post your prayers on our Prayer Wall.
