The Lamp

Where truth can be shared.

Please pray

What a horror story is coming out of Virginia Tech, where a gunman has reportedly killed at least 31 people.

Our only response to this kind of tragedy, as believers in Jesus Christ, is to pray. There is nothing more powerful.

  • Please pray for the students, staff and faculty of Virginia Tech.
  • Pray also for the families of the students, and especially for the families of the victims. This is a shocking and appalling tragedy, and their lives have been forever impacted.
  • And pray that God’s power and love will be rediscovered by those who have come face-to-face with the frailty of life. This is a moment when people are desperate to find reasons … and hope.

It could be the moment when they turn to Jesus Christ, to the Creator of the universe.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:12-13).

Your prayers will make a great impact on the students, staff and families of Virginia Tech today.
