Broken Hearts: Shootings at Schools

My heart is broken over the shootings in Florida- of babies  ( yes those teens are someone’s baby) being sent to school to study, to laugh, …. and parents believing that their child is reasonably safe. Now as a result of evil there are broken hearts. Hurting and angry hearts. Lord have mercy.

Let us pray to stay the hand of shootings and violence in our nation This is the 18th school shooting. Lord we need thee and we call upon you. Psalm 145:18. Then after we pray and continue to pray,arise let us take righteous action to stop and address this evil.

Pray for the families at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County, Florida.

We want to pray proactively and using the Word of God as a source of our prayer. See how one pastor suggest we pray against the  violence.

5 Ways Christians Should Pray Following a Mass Shooting Dr. Jeremy Roberts, Pastor                         

The mass school shooting that took place in South Florida was a tragic act of violence that shows demonic activity is alive. This shooting was purely from Satan. It was anti-God. It was evil. We have a desperate need for God’s peace. (If you’ve been away from the news cycle, here are the details.)


Now is the time to turn to God in prayer. I encourage you to pray through several Psalms as you process what happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Broward County, Florida.


How Should You Pray, in Response to the Shooting?


  1. Pray for God’s peace and comfort to fall upon all affected. (Pray Psalm 86:17)


Show me a sign of your favor, that those who hate me may see and be put to shame because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.


  1. Pray that this trend of school and church shootings would cease, via the power of God and wisdom of police and security experts. (Pray Psalm 11:5)


The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.


  1. Pray that American politicians would unite in the midst of this tragedy and work together to lead a safer country instead of fighting and blaming. Pray that politicians would not seek to destroy their “political enemies” in the heat of this proverbial summer. (Pray Psalm 32:3-4)


For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah


  1. Pray that Christians would respond to this in compassionate ways instead of using this event to merely push opinions of gun control. (Pray Psalm 116:5)


Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; our God is merciful.


  1. Pray for a sweeping revival to come to America. We must come back to God. (Pray Psalm 9:9)


The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.

Interview Questions by Linda Fegins:

Describe yourself for our visitors:
I live in St. Louis MO. I’m divorced and have a 34 year old son, and a beautiful 5 year old grandson. I currently work full time for the local library and I also own Spoken Word Press publishing company and host Author Chat with Lynda D. Brown on on the weekends to help support and promote fellow authors.

How do you find time to connect with God?

Each morning between the hours of 2-3am, I spend time in prayer and ‘command my morning’. I realized how important this was after I purchased a copy of Dr. Cindy Trimm’s Commanding Your Morning book and I also read a passage of scripture before going to bed.

What inspired you to write this book?

I first shared this prayer with a few close friends and co-workers and when they experienced the same blessings and protection that I did, I decided to put it in book.

Who are your favorite authors and why?

I’m a huge fan of Dr. Cindy Trimm, Tananarive Due, Wanda B. Campbell, Shelia E. Lipsey, Victoria Christopher Murray, and Beverly Jenkins. Dr. Cindy Trimm book, Commanding Your Morning taught me how to ‘plant the heavens ‘and tell the universe how I want my day to be. Author Tananarive Due’s books are about the supernatural, and the other authors mention write about life that I can relate to.

Favorite books?

One of my all-time favorite books that I still refer to library patrons and friends looking for a good Christian fiction book is Wanda B. Campbell’s Illusion. It really spoke to me because I have dealt with issues concerning my weight. It made me cry, laugh and shout…great book.

Tell us about your journey to publication.

After living a life involved in the occult, reading tarot cards, creating horoscope charts for clients, chanting, etc., from the age of 16 until 2003, I connected with a Christian friend at work, who finally made me see I was conducting my life in a way that was not pleasing to God. I repented and gave my life back to Him in 2004. I then decided to really get serious and establish a relationship with Jesus, after I read Hosea 4:6 my people are destroyed because of lack of knowledge. I didn’t understand at the time that the scripture was referring to Christians! I believed that many would benefit from my life in the occult, so in 2006, I wrote and published, Once I Was Lost. In the fall of 2006 I began writing the Invisible Enemies Series, a more in-depth fictional account about spiritual warfare. In 2010, when it was finally ready to be published, I decided to start Spoken Word Press and publish the book myself. In 2011, I published book two in the series, Seed of Satan, and I’m currently working on book three. All my books are available in paperback, eBooks and audio.

Tell us about your current book?

Powerful Prayer to Protect & Bless Your Family is just what the title implies. The prayer that I share in this book is a strategic prayer. It covers the prayer that Jesus taught the disciples in Matthew 6, how to plead the blood of Jesus over your loved ones, how to intercede for others, how to set a guard over your mouth since life and death are in the power of the tongue, how to live a life that’s less of you and more of him, and finally, how to pray for God to become a part of everything you’re involved in, and to enlarge your territory.

How did you come up with ideas for this book?

Since I write about spiritual warfare, I’ve been under some serious attacks. I began researching prayers that would help me ‘fight back.” Too many Christians don’t know how to fight back when the ‘enemy’ goes on the attack. I sought the Holy Spirit to help me include the information in the book that believers needed to have victory in their lives.

What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

When you pray strategically, you learn how to have victory in your life. This book shows you how to use the spiritual keys of the kingdom and the weapons of our warfare to defeat the enemy and live the abundant life that Jesus died for believers to have. I’m a living witness, because I’m living my dreams by writing and publishing my books, and also being a blessing to others.
