For the Sake of our Children…

Like everyone else – I’ve spent the last 30 hours heartbroken. I can’t watch more than a few moments of television without tears filling my eyes. Children. The most innocent and vulnerable. There are no words.

And like most of you, I have my moments of rage and disgust. I have my ideals and values. And I’m grateful to live in a Nation where discussions and debate can occur. But right now, I have no answers – only heartbreak.

The families, the friends, the first responders, the teachers… The list goes on and on… And all we can do is send our love and prayers.

Of course you must do what feels right to you —- but this is the only thing I feel like doing. This powerful song by my beautiful sister Mary Alessi is playing constantly in my heart and mind. I hope it will give you a bit of peace in this tragic time as well.

For the sake of our children we pray
For the sake of our children we pray
We pray cover and keep them
With Your mighty hand
Hear our cry today
For the sake of our children we pray

For the sake of our brothers we pray
For the sake of our brothers we pray
We pray cover and keep them
With Your mighty hand
Hear our cry today
For the sake of our brothers we pray

We pray
Pray
We pray
Pray
We pray
We pray
For the sake of our brothers we pray

If My people who are called by My name
Humble themselves and seek My face
And turn from their ways
Then I will hear from heaven
I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins
And I heal their land

For the sake of the nations we pray
For the sake of the nations we pray
We pray cover and keep them
With Your sovereign hand
Hear our cry today
For the sake of the nations we pray

We pray
Pray
We pray
Pray
We pray
We pray
For the sake of the nations we pray
For the sake of our brothers we pray
For the sake of our children we pray
