Statement from President Paul Nyquist About Las Vegas Mass Shooting


“As we began to wake up this morning as a nation and go about our day, the stories and images of last night’s tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas caused feelings of profound sadness and grief to well up within our collective hearts. In the wake of this horrific evil, let us not be numb to what has happened, but have the heart of God who in Proverbs 6 detests evil and those who shed blood. Let us also pause and come to the Lord together on behalf of the families and loved ones whose lives were tragically taken. Psalm 77 reminds us that while we are troubled in these moments to the point that we are at a loss for words and cannot speak, we come before the Lord knowing He will hear us and His steadfast love and grace have not ceased and will come to those who have been deeply affected by this tragedy. Please also join me in prayer for the hundreds who were injured so that their lives would be preserved and would experience a full recovery. May our God bless those who are suffering, and may we as the Church walk compassionately alongside them and show the love of Christ.”

—Dr. Paul Nyquist, Moody Global Ministries President
