Your grief is Our grief.
Your tears are Our tears.
Your loss is Our loss.
We mourn with you, and we stand with you in this time of deepest sorrow and tragedy. We will stand against evil. We will shine our hearts of compassion toward you to light the path during these days of overwhelming sadness.
In our collective grief, we offer up prayers and echo your cries for help and deliverance from the enemy. And in our tears, we send forth hope across the miles of ocean between us, that your heads might be lifted and your hearts might find comfort and healing.
Hope to remind you that God hears the cries of so many and He will not turn a blind eye against this evil. He is “El Roi”, the God who sees and “El Shama”, the God who hears and listens.
Hope that in the midst of such overwhelming pain, He will strengthen you and carry your burden.
Hope that stands unshakeable, to proclaim the promise of God…
to be your towering rock of safety,
Do do not fear. Do not be dismayed. But lift your eyes to the heavens…from where your help comes from.
And hear our voices through the miles of crashing waves…
