I know it might sound a little strange, but, when you’re praying for the families of the slain, the family of the shooter, the firefighters, police, medical personnel, dispatchers, and all the others–please don’t forget to pray for my friend Fred Saada and all the other chaplains serving there in Roseburg.
“God give them strength, and fill them with the Spirit of Jesus.”
Here’s a recent Facebook post from Fred about the current situation there:
Long two days in Roseburg and it is just the beginning of picking up the pieces that evil has strewn all over the region and beyond. Several of us Chaplains are serving the torn, the weary, the brokenhearted and those who are mourning this senseless and evil act. But evil will not prevail. Jesus, the Light of the World, has overcome the world and its evil.
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Thank you Fred for this scripture. Our Messiah indeed has overcome the world by raising from the dead. While we are still here we can become overcomers too as we patiently wait for our new kingdom and share His Good News.
Father, may anointing and blessing be upon all those who minister to those who are hurting from this evil tragedy. I ask this in the Name above all names, in the authority of Your Son, Yeshua/Jesus the only true Messiah.
Thank you so much Irene!
