We grieve with the people of Norway over this senseless cruel act of terrorism. AND Father, we pray that those who have lost relatives and friends in the recent massacre will receive YOUR Peace that passes all understanding. Father, thwart Satan’s plans to have the people of Norway and Europe place blame on Jesus and his followers for this massacre. Instead, Father, comfort the hurting and the bereaved and bring even more people to faith in Jesus Christ. Encourage Christians to speak out boldly against this terrible deed and have them lead the comfort for the bereaved. We pray this for the glory of our saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ. AMEN.
