First Responders PrayerWalk today, 5:15-5:45 PM at Millard South High

There were spontaneous prayer vigils at MSHS last night and also at several churches. The school is closed today and we anticipate more prayer-vigils as students, families, school staff and the community processes their grief in this tragedy.

Tonight at 5:15 we will meet near the flag-pole in front of the East entrance for a time of prayer then prayerwalk the area joining with and appropriately ministering to others that have spontaneously showed up.

We don’t see ourselves as stepping into the lead position in the community responses to this tragedy but joining in with others to do our part… We will also stay flexible for what the Lord may lead if many others start to join our prayer circle.

First Responders is a church/community prayer response to violence that also ministers to the neighborhood and those grieving as Jesus would and letting them know that they are not alone. We invite pastors and churches to join with us in caring for our community following this tragedy.

If you cannot get into the east parking lot, please park across “Q” Street at Southwest Church of the Nazarene 14808 Q Street and walk across to the East Entrance.

At this time, there is no better way to express that God is still present in this world than by example of prayer and vigils. Thank you for organizing this.
