Urgent Prayer for Las Vegas Shooting Victims

CLEVELAND, TN: With over 500 injured, almost five dozen killed, and scores more fighting for their lives, the Church of God family is being called on to pray for those impacted by the horrific shooting incident in Las Vegas last night. 

“I mourn with those who have lost loved ones in this horrible shooting incident – and pray for all those who are wounded. My heart breaks when we experience something like this that is totally and completely senseless. We need a true healing in our land to stop the violence that has become common place,” stated Dr. Tim Hill, General Overseer of the Church of God.  

After making contact with the California/Nevada regional office and our local churches in Las Vegas, we do not think that anyone directly associated with our churches in the area lost their life in the melee. However, a cousin to one of our pastors was shot in the leg, but is expected to make a full recovery. Several church members were first responders and dealt with the carnage left by the gunman.  

Please pray for all that have been impacted by the Las Vegas shooting incident – and for our nation as a whole for a cessation of the violence.
