Dear Heavenly Father, There is so much evil in the world right now...too many innocent lives cut short by people who have meant only to kill, destroy, steal...We need You and Your warrior angels to surround us all and protect us...Cover us with Your most precious blood, Lord Jesus...In Your name Lord, we pray. Amen.

US authorities are currently investigating what triggered the shooter Stephen Paddock to open fire on the crowd of 22,000 as they watched country music star Jason Aldean perform at the festival. It is considered the deadliest mass shooting in US history.
