I Prayed have prayed
Father, thank you for this good Samaritan who acted courageously. Lord, we ask that you raise up more bravery in our nation and put an end to the violence.

This is an answered prayer! We need more bravery like this in our country. Let’s thank God for this act of heroism!

From Fox News. At least four people, including the shooter, are dead and others are injured following a shooting at a shopping mall in the suburbs of Indianapolis

Who is praying on the wall?

a few days before this happened, I thought “we are due for another public shooting” (notice how Satan almost has a pattern to this these days?) I had hoped I was wrong but asked quickly “Lord Jesus, please stop him with a concealed carry”. Sadly a few lives were lost but if that young man hadn’t been there, it’d be dozens or more.
THank You, Heavenly Father, for prompting us to pray before these massacres happen and send your angels and humans to stop evil in its tracks. In Jesus’ name.

Jeff B: IFA State leader for Indiana
Indiana prays that a light be shone on all persons contemplating mass shootings. That they become known to the police, to their friends family and those around them, that they would come to their senses (like the Justice Kavanaugh shooter did when he turned himself in), that they be interrupted and that members of the public intercede in some way. While we lost 4 souls in the Greenwood Mall shooting, there was an individual who was legally carrying a handgun that stopped the shooter soon after he began and well before the police could arrive. Read the IFA article here: https://ifapray.org/blog/gun-owner-stops-deadly-shooter/ While we cannot take this as a victory, we do see God’s hand here… now let’s all double down to cover our states with the protection of the Lord’s mercy and justice.

Unfortunately, this act of courage that saved many lives will probably not get much press because it does not fit with the anti-gun narrative being pushed on us twenty-four seven. But I’m sure the people actually present in the mall that day are grateful for the action of a law abiding citizen that saved their lives. Interestingly, the dialogue surrounding the gun debate could take a lesson from this statement of Jesus in the Bible – “the love of money is the root of all evil.” notice – not money itself, but the “love” of money – money itself is neutral. Same with technology – it is neutral, neither good nor bad. But it can be used for good or for evil. Same with God’s good gift of sex – it was sacred and private – we made it to be profane and public in how we used it. Guns too are neutral – they can be used for good or evil purposes. We don’t do away with money because some people use money for evil purposes, drugs, human trafficking, bribery, illegal things – while some use money to be generous towards those in need, all kinds of philanthropy. We don’t ban technology because some use it for illegal/evil things – computer fraud etc. – likewise banning guns is not a solution, law followers would be unarmed and criminals who don’t abide by the law anyway would continue to possess guns. The answer to it all is human heart change, not more man made laws that aren’t enforced anyway. We need our Creator God, He alone is in the heart changing business. Lord, write Your laws on our hearts and help us to be Your salt and light in this world. May we turn back to You as a nation before it is too late. http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com
