Thoughts and prayers are needed

After today’s sad news of a shooting at a church I read a lot of people on Twitter complaining about the term “thoughts and prayers” as it is a common phrased used by right-wingers who love their guns.

But the idea of “thoughts and prayers” aren’t needed (with the victims being in a church) is false.

Thoughts and prayers are always needed. Prayer is so needed because we are calling out to God to give us comfort, safety, love and so much more. But I think the misconception is actually about the idea that prayer is the ONLY thing we are doing.

No. It’s what we do in addition to prayers. Prayers will remain and action is needed. The action is to fix this trash gun law that allows mass shootings to happen so frequently.

So don’t tell me that prayers are useless. It’s so useful and needed for a country in pain. But it’s not supposed to be the only thing. Let’s get that right.

I pray for the victims and I will vote and push to get the gun law changed.
