Father, Forgive Them, For They Know Not What They Do

This is a prayer request. Yesterday, St. Valentines Day, there was a gun shooting at NIU, a collage about an hour from where I live. We heard the news from a friend, because a girl I know goes to collage there. She said she was walking down the hall to that classroom for her next class, but before she got there, the gunman locked the door to the room. While she escaped, some of her friends were in there.
According to news reports, at least 7 people were killed - including the gunman. 22 people total were injured or killed, with 17 or 18 having to be taken to the hospital. At 9:30pm, 5 were in critical condidtion. All of the injured were students, and the gunman is believed to be a graduate of the collage.
Please join me in praying for the souls of those who are dead, for their families and friends, and for all the people involved.


  1. Thanks Amanda! I'm praying!

  2. I will definately pray for everyone! It's terrible that others can do things that evil, and get away with it.

  3. Please continue to pray for them all. Funerals will be held this week and students will return next week. I understand that the building where the shootings took place will be closed for the remainder of the school year. I can't imagine . . . Danny's godmother's son goes to school there and new one of the victims, Dan . . . he tried to protect his girlfriend by getting in front of her . . . the bullet hit him, killing him instantly and then went through him and got the girlfriend. I believe she is doing better. Sooooooo incredibly sad and scary. Please continue to pray.
