I Whisper A Prayer…

 My heart bleeds for the pointless killings of innocent children in Connecticut… My heart bleeds and I whisper a prayer of comfort to those hurting parents and children. The deaths are unimaginable, the pain unbearable.

Hopes dashed, dreams quashed, the pain indescribable.

Destroy all these guns, arrest this evil monster, this happens too many times. Beautiful, innocent children, they’ve got no sin, no stain yet cut down so early. My heart bleeds, my prayers to the parents affected. Words fail me!

When shall these killings stop? When shall the insane heal? This happens too often, something must be done. Children must be protected, nobody deserves to die, least of all children.

As a parent, I offer my prayers, my tears fall and I hope for a miracle.

My fingers are numb, my eyes are heavy, my heart is….

Looking for answers.

Why kill?

I have no answer, I just whisper a prayer.

Please pray with me…

    Such sweet touching words…our hearts join together in prayer for those in unbareable pain. We will never understand how horrors like this one could happen…but can pray that with the joining of our hearts the world can become a little better, one heart at a time…peace and love to you and your children.

      Thank you so much for those words. I hope the world can indeed be a better place… One Heart At A Time, I love that phrase, in times of confusion and pain, the only thing I do is pray. Thank you for praying with me. Love and peace to you too my friend.

    Your prayers along with ours has already reached the high heavens. May the souls of those little children find eternal rest in His bosom.

    Those who kill are either deprived of love, or have no love at all in their hearts. May they be caught up in their evil.

    • Seyi sandra says:

      Thank you Uzoma for your comment, and I say ‘Amen’ to those prayers you uttered. It’s so hard to judge the wicked sometimes… But they will be ensnared by their own hands! Those innocent, beautiful souls are resting…

  3. I was so emotional today thinking about the little ones and their families. Thank you this was so needed.

    The questions are many, but few will have answers, even long after this tragic day. May the families of those taken today find comfort & love with family, friends and within their communities.
    Beautiful words.

  5. A prayer and deepest sympathies are with families affected and for all the little angels who gone too soon today ……..

    Overwhelming, it is. I just kept remembering Daniel at that age, and thinking of dropping him and school and coming to pick him up…. It is heart rendering, so so damned a crime. God, I just don’t know how these parents will get by.

    This is a lovely prayer, Seyisandra. Very beautiful. Imagine, they may even have bought some of their kids’ Christmas presents…

    • Seyi sandra says:

      It is horrendous and unforgivable but with time I hope they would be able to move on. It takes time but with them in our prayers, they can cope. Thanks for your comment and my love to your family.
      Love and peace-:)

    I can’t imagine the pain and loss that whole community is suffering, it is beyond belief that these types of incidents are allowed to happen over and over again.

  10. jmsanchezbenitez says:

    I can say hundreds of expressions of pain as an act occurred, but when the victims are children as young I remain unwilling to say them. How can we be so vile?.

    • Seyi sandra says:

      I don’t understand it my friend. The children are between the ages of 6 to 7 years old. Even a mentally deranged man should know they are kids! The shooter was pure evil but its those left behind we should be praying for and hope such horrible crimes are stopped. But we live in a very dangerous world…

    I have nominated you for the “Blog Of The Year 2012” award

  13. I can never understand why kids had to suffer. To teach their parents a lesson? To teach who a lesson? My heart feels heavy, angry and confuse.

  14. It’s been a long three days, hasn’t it? So many questions and very few answers. But there is hope.

    • Seyi sandra says:

      Yes it is, hopefully with our prayers, they (parents, families, friends) left behind would be able to endure the excrutiating hours, days and years ahead. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Well I really enjoyed reading your piece of writing. You are someone very special with your magnificent writing crafts, that you possess. Your subject matter, hits the nail right on top of the head. Thus, racism in America has deep roots and consequences. Yet, what goes around, comes around. Racist Gun Laws will self-destruct our nation, from the inside. The haters will slowly destroy themselves with all of their hate towards, People of Color. Yes, God don’t like ugly and we need to sing out loud for God’s love, mercy and spiritual guidance. However, We must give God all the glory for His continuous blessings. May God always guide you with His wonderful words of light

    Yes, we all say a prayer, not only for those that are sorrowing, but also that love will be the rule of the day in people’s lives. I’m so glad you liked “A New Year’s Maid.” – Since we are following each other we will be in touch. HAPPY 2013 – all of it!

  17. Very heartfelt and moving

  19. I echo your heartfelt prayer. Dear Father, deliver us from violence.
