Prayer best response

It’s a tragedy every time a crazy person guns down innocent people. There is evil in this world, always has been, always will be.

I do find it interesting in times of trouble that people say prayer is needed; from the president, governors and congressmen and women. But only in times of tragic episodes. God is forever waiting for our prayers. If you only pray in time of sorrow does God know you? You become like a child who only comes around when you need something?

We’ve taken God out of everything except in time of need or sorrow. It doesn’t work that way. You either have God in your life 24/7 or you do not.

Policemen are only there to scrape your body from the pavement and take it to the morgue. You need to protect yourself until they arrive.
