355* Prayers – Faith Without Works Is Dead

Still Life OH by KMLSI pray too.

Daily. For the victims. For the responders. For the shooters. For peace. For an end to violence. For our broken society. For all of us.

I too believe in the power of prayer. But I am also open to the call. That I may be the answer to a prayer. Part of prayer is an openness to act.

You in positions of power, use your power and the responsibility bestowed upon you to make the changes needed to help heal our land. This is not about personal security. It is about communal safety. You have an obligation to protect ALL of your constituency.

Faith without works is dead, like more bloody victims lying in the street. It makes the motto on our coinage a farce.

It should read, “In Guns We Trust.”
