I am hanging leaves on the Prayer Tree for every child and adult killed in the Sandy Hook school shootings. I am hanging leaves on the tree for their families, for the community and for the Country as a whole. When even one child dies in such a senseless way, it is the entire nation who is bereaved.

Love

Promise

I would like to hang a leave on The Prayer Tree for the community leader of this board.  CL Promise, thinking of you and missing you on the board.

Lord our God and Heavenly Father heal the heart of each parent who has suffered such a great and tragic loss by the deplorable act of another. Come to their aid Lord God, provide for them the courage and strength each needs to face the hours which come with each new day. Heal the void of emptiness which is felt within the area of each parent's womb, may the kindness, love and attentive care be given by family, friends, neighbors and strangers and be embraced by the parents. May each parent find comfort in knowing the children are now nestled in arms of Jesus and are protected while sharing the company of the angels. Many heartfelt sympathy and condolences are extended to each parent in sincere and loving ways. God Bless and guide each parent throughout the hours of each new day. This is what I ask in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
