UNITED























































Just a few of the Facebook logos that span the nation...
The students of the nation stand united in the face of unspeakable confusion and sorrow, and as we pray for those who have suffered the loss of those they love we wait for glimmers of light to break through the darkness.

Many have asked what Passion is doing in the wake of these events. For now, like you, we are praying and doing all we can to encourage our friends in Blacksburg. There are amazing churches and campus ministries at Tech who are onsight and being used by God as instruments of healing and restoration. We will update you as any further plans develope.

Among other efforts, our friends at Campus Crusade are calling all students to pray tomorrow, Thursday, April 19, for the Virginia Tech campus and the campuses of the world. As these opportunities come your way, take time to join the cause and show your support for VaTech and the Kingdom of Christ which transcends campuses and nations..

If you haven't done so already, visit the Facebook Group "Passion Prays For Virginia Tech." An updating list of the confirmed deceased is posted there so you can pray for their families and friends by name.

  • Wow, I got the chills as I looked at all of those logos. What an awesome display of unity and support to VT. My heart is breaking for all of those parents who are grieving for their lost children. Comfort them, Lord. Pour out your love and peace upon them. Amen.

  • while I did not know anyone at V Tech, a friend of mine was friends in high school with a girl that got killed. All my prayers go out to V Tech, and every college student, since this has affected us all.

  • God I ask that you send in your leaders who feel the loss, who can point to your greatness, who can be strong in you when grief overwhelms those campus leaders who are feeling weak... but at the same time Lord please continue to strengthen those who are your hands and feet at VT.

  • I was given this information at work today. A family from Texas lost a daughter in the shootings at VT.
    The parents, along with their younger daughter, managed to get an emergency flight out to
    Virginia and were trying to hurry to get loaded up and go to the airport. In the midst of backing the car in the driveway her husband accidentally
    ran over their 8 year old daughter and she died as well. They are believers,but I know this is a trying time. Please pray for this family!

  • Psalm 9:9-10,18

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

    10 Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have neverforsaken those who seek you.

    But the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the HOPE of the afflicted ever perish.

    Psalm 91:1-2

    1 HE who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty

    2 I will say of the LORD, "HE is my refuge and my fortress, My God in whom I trust"

    I pray these scriptures over the Virginia Tech community.


    Also I pray for the family in Texas. "God will you please draw near to this family as they will be dealing with an incredible amount of loss and grief!! I pray protection over this family from the enemy as he would try to divide this famly during the difficult times ahead!! I pray Holy Spirit come and swifly to comfort this family and give wisdom and guidance to the people you place around them to be the extension of your arms and feet to express your unconditinoal love to them.

    Amen

  • Thanks for your prayers Louie!

    VT is very close to my hometown and I had many friends who graduated from there.

    Such a senseless thing to happen.

    Praying along with you!

  • The comment above about the 8 year old daughter being run over is a hoax. The person you got it from must have heard about it through an email that has been going around, but after researching it, nothing like that happened. Just thought I'd let everyone know!

  • Thanks for the clarification about the hoax email (info).

  • Hi,I am emailing to ask for prayer for the Christians of North Korea. This week is the global week of prayer and a Christian church in South Korea is calling on believers all over the world to pray for North Korea due to the brutal persecution Christians are facing there. Christians are strictly forbidden to practice their faith and if caught or imprisoned and often times killed. The CSW which is a human rights organization has released a report on how genocide being carried out against Christians has been indicated. May God bless this ministry as it brings the gospel to many.
