Genesis 9, Acts 9:3-4
Father, You said that whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image. We pray for those who have taken the lives of others through shooting.

Let Your presence surround them during this time, Amen.

Romans 6:23
Dear Lord, we bless You that Your Word reminds us that we are only sinners saved by Grace. We pray Lord for shooting victims who have experienced death of a loved one by the hands of another. God we acknowledge that the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal Life in Christ Jesus our Lord. As we pray for the shooting victims, that You will bring consolation and peace in the midst of their grief, we plead that you will grant the free gift of Eternal Life to those ‘shooting addicts’ in Jesus Name.

Matthew 5:21
Lord, You said, “You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgement.” We ask that You will forgive those who murder and let them experience Your divine love.

We continue to provide prayerful support and pray that every shooting victim will find strength in their faith. We pray this prayer to You, Amen.

Psalm 18:2
Dear Lord we pray for shooting victims whose hearts are destroyed and broken with pain because of the senseless deaths caused by gun violence. Many families are in turmoil, whilst children live their lives in fear. But we pray for shooting victims and declare, that You are their rock, fortress and deliverer, in whom they take refuge. We pray that You Lord will be their stronghold, this we pray, Amen.

Numbers 6:24-26
Dear Father, we present before You those who are victims of shooting. We ask that You touch their hearts. Lord, heal their brokenness and help them not to think and reflect on the violence, but help them to turn towards peace in their hearts. So, heavenly Father, for every shooting victim, we ask that You will bless them and keep them; make Your face shine upon them and be gracious to them; Father turn your face towards them and give them peace in the midst of turmoil, this we pray, Amen.
