Please join us in praying for victims of the attacks in Norway. The situation is still developing—so now is the time to ask God to extend his hand of protection to the victims, and his hand of strength to police and rescue personnel.
No doubt additional details about the attacks and the motives behind them will emerge soon, and will spark much discussion, debate, and grief. In the meantime, we hope our brothers and sisters in Norway will find comfort in the words of Psalm 46:
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. (Psalm 46:1-3,7)
