God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fail; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress (Psalm 46:1-7 NIV).
Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh this morning. We stand together in prayer for all those who have been crushed in spirit by tragedy, in Pennsylvania and everywhere in the world.
