Father, we thank You for placing this bishop in the right place at the right time. Continue to protect this church, God, and every other church across the country.

“Upon them coming out of the church, a car pulled right here and began to fire at another car that was behind them,” Bishop Henry Kilpatrick of Reformation of Holiness Church told WISN 12 News.

“There was a massive shooting right here. Me and one of the deacons began to push the people back on inside and tell them to hit the floor, get down on the floor, and they got down on the floor,” added Kilpatrick, who founded the church 24 years ago with his late wife, Rose.

No churchgoer was injured….

Several shootings have taken place in the neighborhood over the last few days, but the one on Sunday was the worst, Kilpatrick said.

“People in this area know, as well as I know, that this is one of the worst areas in the city,” he told WISN 12. “Why am I here? I chose to be here to help the people in this area….”

Thank you our all Powerful God, for intervening in this situation and deflecting the fiery darts that were dispatched from the enemy. Place a hedge of protection around all that experienced this tragic scene and all them to know that by your Hand they were kept from the evil intent.
Praise God for Pastor Kilpatrick for standing ground in this city and driving the stake in the territory that you have given him to reach.

No weapon fashioned against you shall prosper, no non weapon fashioned against you shall prosper! Amen! I met Nora Lam as a baby Christian in CA. We have the same Lord, who will accomplish His protection for you, too! Amen
