Prayer for the people of Aurora

The news of the recent mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, has moved the United States to an outpouring of compassion, loving support, and prayer for the families and friends whose lives this tragedy has touched. Several recent news clips have shown church congregations of different faiths meeting in prayer for the people of Aurora, trying to sort things out and find some peace of mind from their heavenly Father. 

To me this indicates a natural gravitation to, and acknowledgment of, a connection to God, as well as a trust that going to God for solace and answers will bring results. The Bible assures us: “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16).

Like perfume pervading the air in an elevator, everyone is touched by prayer.
