Our prayers are with these our brothers and sisters in Christ for strength and comfort and for our country in the midst of an epidemic of pervasive random violence.
The Ministers Council, ABCUSA, also released a statement offering hopes and prayers and declaring, “We cannot be silent.”
“We pray that God would bless and comfort the families of those who were slain. We ask God to be with the members of the Emanuel AME Church, and the people of Charleston, SC. We take comfort in the fact that God is an ever present help in the time of trouble, and we pray that God’s Spirit would draw us together and heal our hurt.” Read the full statement from The Ministers Council, here.
