My previous comment was meant as a grammatical check, and to point out that prayer is not a communication with humans, but with God. I don't intend to debate or argue in this forum, as it always comes down to faith. Mine is in God the Father, whose Son Jesus Christ shed innocent blood, even more innocent than the blood shed at Sandy Hook, for the sins of the world, including this shooting. However, admission of guilt and faith to receive this salvation are required for the remission of sin.

why is it all the non believers always have to prove and voice their belief in no God but believers are confident in what we believe.

To the atheist: If you want nothing to do with God, why do you bother posting here? Is it so you can ridicule, once again, Christian faith?

"God did not cause this."
Really? And, this same god doesn't know what you're thinking, so you have to get everyone together and beam a combined signal to him/her?
I think some people's deity qualifications are a bit too low. What happened to "he knows how many hairs are on your head"?

Just wanted to point out the fallacy of the headline. Prayers go "to" God, not to the victims or subjects of the prayers. We pray "to" the One Who has the power to intervene, comfort, heal, and restore. We pray "for" the ones who are powerless to do these things on their own. (that is all of us)

Why is this news? Isn't that what church goers do?

I'm pretty sure most churches in the nation (including mine) prayed for the victims and families of this tragedy.
