This is a quick post, please take 2 minutes to read and pray with us.
Gun violence has escalated dramatically in Seattle over the last several months, including the shooting and killing of innocent bystanders over the last few weeks. This morning, 2 were killed and 3 injured in a shooting a Cafe Racer in Seattle’s Roosevelt/University District neighborhood, and almost simultaneously, a woman was shot during what appears to be a carjacking near downtown, as of this writing, her condition is unknown. Update 12:14 pm: The woman shot during the carjacking has been confirmed dead. Today alone now 3 killed and 3 injured.
Our city is on edge right now. Please pray with me for peace for Seattle.
Psalm 122 is a prayer of peace for Jerusalem. I think it’s appropriate to use it as a guide to pray for the peace of Seattle right now:
6 Pray for the peace of Seattle. Say,
”May those who love you be secure.
7 May there be peace inside your walls.
May your people be kept safe.”
8 I’m concerned for my family and friends.
So I say to Seattle, “May you enjoy peace.”
9 I’m concerned about the house of the Lord our God.
So I pray that things will go well with Seattle.
Thank you, and keep praying for our city.
