(The Baptist Standard) For many Americans, ’tis the season to snuggle by the fireplace with family and friends, sing Christmas carols and enjoy Grandma’s cooking.
A few days ago, the New York Times ran an op-ed from a creative-writing instructor and confessed torturer.
This afternoon about 14:30hrs a bin lorry went out of control hitting many people in central glasgow right at George Square. So far 6 poor souls have been fatally injured and a similar number are in hospital. Let us pray for those affected by these dreadful circumstances.
God, please be with those families who are suddenly bereaved this afternoon of cherished loved ones. Please help those who were caught up in the chaos of this situation to come to terms with what happened. For those recovering in hospital, please bless them and heal their fragile bodies , and also the medical staff dealing with them. Bless the emergency services, the Police and all the passers-by who were suddenly called upon to tend their injured and dying fellow citizens. Amen.
