Tragedy at the Boston Marathon

I’m deeply distressed by the news coming out of Boston–the horror of it and how close it hits home for me. I lived in Boston for twelve years, walked Boylston St. thousands of times; did my field ed at First Baptist Boston which is only a couple of blocks away from the finish line.

Marathon Day was always special even if you never were a spectator. The day’s excitement was infectious even if you spent it in class or at work instead of along the route. It’s been changed forever, a reminder of the suffering, pain, and evil in the world.

Pray for Boston. Pray for our nation. Pray for the world. Pray for the human race.

  1. It is refreshing to see fellow WordPress bloggers calling us to prayer. I included the “National Prayer for Peace” in my earlier post as it seems so appropriate for us in this hour.
