 This is just part of our President’s speech today at Virginia Tech.  The part that caught my attention most is that “There’s a power in these prayers, a real power.”  Yes! There is a real power.  God is our comforter in times like these.  May we continue to pray for the families and friends of these students and faculty members who were so brutally assaulted yesterday.  May we pray for America!  We need JESUS!

 President Bush speaking to a somber basketball arena, packed with students and others, many wearing orange short-sleeved Virginia Tech T-shirts,  quoted a recent student blogging about the killings to encourage those who grieve to reach out for help.

“To all of you who are OK, I’m happy for that,” Bush said, quoting the Internet posting. “For those of you who are in pain or who have lost someone close to you, I’m sure you can call on any one of us and have help anytime you need it.”

He urged those angered by the killings not to be overcome by evil.

“People who have never met you are praying for you,” Bush said. “They’re praying for your friends who have fallen and who are injured. There’s a power in these prayers, a real power. In times like this, we can find comfort in the grace and guidance of a loving God.”

Amen, Mr. President!
