22 Murdered, Shooter Killed & Others Injured...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), there is something I feel I need to let you know about.

It is something that happened in Portapique, and other areas in the Province of Nova Scotia, Canada.

Here is a link for the article by ctvnews.ca that is entitled, 22 people killed in Nova Scotia rampage: RCMPhttps://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/22-people-killed-in-nova-scotia-rampage-rcmp-1.4905172.

Hopefully, you clicked on that link, and read the article.  I can only share a bit (I copied/pasted):

Nova Scotia RCMP have confirmed an additional four victims of the weekend killing spree, bringing the total death toll to 22 in what is now one of the deadliest massacres in Canadian history.
It also stated (I copied/pasted):

Police said they searched for the suspect for about 12 hours from late Saturday night into Sunday morning, as he travelled more than 150 kilometres along rural roads and highways, killing at least 22 victims and torching properties and police vehicles. Victims have been located in the communities of Portapique, Wentworth, Debert, Shubenacadie/Milford and Enfield.

Plus,  it also stated (I copied/pasted):

The shooter knew some of the victims and those individuals “were targeted,” the RCMP said, while other victims were not known to him. The RCMP said it will not be providing more details on those relationships.
The suspect, identified as 51-year-old Gabriel Wortman, was killed Sunday after police intercepted him near a gas station. He was wearing an authentic police uniform and driving a vehicle that resembled a police cruiser. Investigators are now looking into how he obtained such a vehicle.
CTV News has learned that Wortman was convicted of assault in 2002. According to court documents, he was ordered to undergo counselling for anger management and banned from possessing firearms, explosives and any prohibited weapon for nine months. He was also ordered to pay a fine and received a conditional discharge.
Others were injured in the shooting, including a police officer and members of the public, but they have not released more details on their injuries.
To me, this was truly sad... that so many people were shot, murdered or were injured.

To me, it was also... truly sinful... because of the shooting, murdering and injuring that was done.

To me... the shooter obviously was NOT yet a Christian.

After all, God does not want anyone to murder... as I've mentioned before... many times... and have mentioned by using God's Bible verses.

This made me feel sick in my heart.


As it was mentioned in the article... 22 people were murdered and the shooter was killed... plus some people were shot... and injured.

Hopefully, those who were injured by being shot, will survive.

To be honest, I will pray... continually... for all those people, their family and friends... for many people will need prayer.

Plus, I will pray that none involved were my lost family members... or yours.

So, please... join me in prayer.

Thinking about that made me think about  1 Thessalonians 5:17, "Pray without ceasing.".

Amen!  Pray without ceasing.

As I mentioned, I will pray... continuously... without ceasing.

Thank you for also praying.

If we all pray, I believe that God will bless us for supporting others... and will help those who need prayer.

So, I praise Him.

Thank you, Lord!

Until next time...
