Our Capitol Commission Chaplain in Tennessee alerted me to this tremendous need last night. “Please pray for the 7 Nashville families who have lost loved ones today. And pray especially for the Pastor and his wife of the church and school who lost their own daughter. God have mercy.”

“This family needs grace like none other right now. They are an mainstay in Nashville… but they have the incredible weight of being the Pastor’s of the very church where this tragedy occurred. They need so many prayers….” “You never know the weight a pastor… I cannot fathom the pain…”

Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. (Psalm 61:1-4)
