Calling all prayer warriors

This is from the State coordinator for Connecticut:

Dear Moms in Prayer family, It is very seldom that we share a state letter with the whole country, but tonight is an exception. Would you please read the letter below from our Connecticut State Coordinator, and if God leads you, would you pray with her and her state for the families affected by the school shooting in Newtown, CT yesterday?
My sisters in Christ,
I am writing to answer the many moms who have written to me and asked what they can do in response to the Sandy Hook School tragedy. I have had Moms in Prayer group leaders from the far reaches of our country and across the ocean informing me that they are fervently praying for the grieving families of our Sandy Hook and Newtown community.
Oh, how our sisters in Christ have responded in union! We know without a doubt that the Holy Spirit is present while we are praying with the knowledge that God will bring good despite this violence against our little children and teachers.
Many CT Moms in Prayer warriors have told me that they are involved with prayer vigils in their churches and are planning special meetings with their prayer groups. The intention is to concentrate specific prayer for the families of Sandy Hook, the town of Newtown, the state of Connecticut and our country.
In light of the knowledge of so many prayer vigils being organized and Moms in Prayer groups meeting for this purpose, I have created a sample Moms in Prayer sheet that could create a way we Moms in Prayer moms may unite in One Accord for our intentional prayer. Feel free to use it or create your own. Most important is that we pray! Imagine how God will respond to our intercession where hundreds and thousands of praying moms unite!
So, I thank you ladies for your heartfelt prayers for our families here in Connecticut. We so desperately need Jesus in our schools to save our children and families living in darkness.
Oh, Lord, restore us unto yourself. Revive us again. Show us your unfailing love. We pray that you direct us praying moms into your presence on behalf of the hurting families in Newtown and Sandy Hook. Help us to see your work of good despite this act of evil by Satan. Help us to be a light in the darkness of fear and anxiety that permeates our culture.
In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
In union with my mighty praying sisters in Christ,
Psalm 46:10
"Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
