Jessica Ridgeway’s justice is coming. An arrest was made today. Glory, hallelujah.
But the boy was 17 – barely past being a child himself. What on earth???
Rest in Peace, little Jessica. And I am praying for her family, too….
And just yesterday brothers, ages 15 and 17, were arrested in New Jersey for killing a 12 year old girl and stuffing her body into a recycle container.
We need to be crying out for the children, for all of them. Life, life! May they know and understand the sanctity of life, and choose life. And LORD, help us show them hope. Wake us up as parents and adults to be examples of taking responsibility for our actions and not living in a state of entitlement that makes everything about ‘me-me-me’. Lord, help us turn back the tide. Help us step up and do the repenting it takes (as YOUR people) to heal. our. land!
When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. 2 Chronicles 7.13-15 NKJV
