I Prayed have prayed
God, we pray that You would protect churches and Christian schools across the nation from dangerous individuals like Hale. Bring truth in this investigation, Father, and comfort the families of those who lost people in this horrific attack.

The Nashville shooter, Audrey Hale, was a trans individual and an alumnus of the Covenant School. For now, it is an open question how much her trans identity may have played into the tragic violence.

From New York Post. Nashville police revealed that the 28-year-old who shot and killed six people at the Covenant School, including three children, identified as transgender and had a detailed manifesto to attack the Christian academy.

Officials said Audrey Hale, a former student, entered the school Monday morning by shooting through a door on the side of the building.

While inside, Hale killed Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney, all age 9, as well as custodian Mike Hill and substitute teacher Cynthia Peak, both 61, and school head Katherine Koonce, 60.

Following the shootings, Hale was killed when they encountered officers on the second floor. …

Police said Hale was equipped with at least two assault weapons and a handgun, and in searching her family home in Nashville, officers found detailed maps and a manifesto of the attack. …

Asked whether Hale’s identity could be a factor in the motive, [Nashville Metropolitan Police Chief John] Drake said authorities “feel that she identifies as trans, but we’re still in the initial investigation into all of that and if it actually played a role into this incident.”

In online profiles Hale had indicated they used he/him pronouns and also went by the name Aiden. …

Hale was notably an alumnus of the small private Christian school, which teaches students in pre-K through 6th grade and only has about 200 students enrolled, according to its website. …

“There’s some belief that there was some resentment for having to go to that school,” Drake told NBC News’ Lester Holt Monday evening. “Don’t have all the details to that just yet and that’s why this incident occurred.” …

“She targeted random students in the school. … Whoever she came in contact with, she fired rounds,” Drake said. …

Lord, we come against the spirit of perversion and destruction that had taken over Audrey Hale and ask you reveal to all those in the lifestyle that they must look to Jesus to replace the identity of the enemy with the identity of Jesus. Lord, comfort all the families that lost a loved one in this atrocious attack and give them the hope that is only in you in Jesus name

Miraculously a gun grew legs and walked in to a school yet again.
Maybe 1 day someone will get to the root of how madness of how hate gets to rule the day.

My God, there are six grieving, brokenhearted families out there right now, even as I write these words.
These are things I cannot know. I do not understand. But I do ask You, please, to restore these devastated lives and souls. You will have to comfort them, O LORD, because no one else can do it. I ask this in the name of the One Who stood facing the tomb of Lazarus and wept.

Father, we thank you that you love us and have called us to pray against the works of the devil. We ask for comfort for the families at Covenant School, not just those who lost loved ones, but those who are tramautized by what happened. I pray you would protect our schools from shootings and from false doctrines that lead to a walk away from faith. May we be faithful to pray and trust you to change our nation. We declare righteousness over the United States of America and over the world. May your kingdom come.

Although I agree we must pray for God to protect our children from the evil that is happening in our country and around the world but let’s not forget that Audrey was used as a vessel to commit these heinous acts of evil. Pray God have mercy upon our country and forgive us for being complacent in our personal walk with the Lord.,our prayer life and seeing things happening and voted in because we think that is someone else’s task.
Because of this complacency we have arrived to where now our children,babies and young adults are targeted with the agenda of the”woke”. If ever your going to do something the time is now!
Pray without ceasing against CRT and this insane “woke” agenda. Make no mistake Satan is coming after our young people.

Almighty God,
We give You praise, for You are infinitely just. Father, bring justice to this act of evil. Restore those affected and make them whole. Lord, bring Your miraculous healing to the families of those who lost their life in this horrific school shooting. Give us Your strength and courage to go into the darkness and turn up the light with ferocity. Forgive us for giving up so much ground to evil and not protecting the children. May Your kingdom come and Your will be done! In Jesus’ name, amen.

Speaking of “pronouns,” I think we may avoid using pronouns altogether when speaking in the third person simply by using the person’s given name or surname instead of the pronoun. We do not need to yield to woke cultural pressure by using a feminine third person pronoun when the male one is the obvious rational choice.

For example, your last sentence might read, “Hale targeted random students in the school ….. whoever Hale came in contact with, Hale fired rounds.” If repetition of the proper name seems too contrived, the sentence may be rearranged accordingly. You could replace the first phrase by writing “The students were targeted randomly….”

But to continue to bend to this sort of language dictation by evil is to aid and abet it in a certain way.

    I refuse to yield to social pressure. I intend to use biological pronouns.. as we all should. Did God’s word say that He created Adam? No, He created man! And then He created woman. He gave them names later. The last sentence of the article was written just the way I was taught in English class.
