Special Pray against Violence

Hello FIRE Community, today we are taking a pause to pray a special prayer against violence. On July 28, 2019 there was a shooting in Gilroy, CA, on August 3, 2019 there was a shooting in El Paso, Texas, and on August 4, 2019 there was a shooting in Dayton Ohio. Three shootings in 7 days! Over 30 people killed and over 60 people wounded. 

1 Peter 3:9

 Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing.

Isaiah 60:18 (ESV)

Violence shall no more be heard in your land, devastation or destruction within your borders; you shall call your walls Salvation,  and your gates Praise.

Proverbs 3:29-31 (ESV)

Do not plan evil against your neighbor, who dwells trustingly beside you. Do not contend with a man for no reason, when he has done you no harm. Do not envy a man of violence and do not choose any of his ways,

Titus 3:2(ESV)

to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.
