We Must Pray: Christian Leaders React to the Las Vegas Shooting

Last night, a gunman police have identified as Stephen Paddock, opened fire on a crowd of people attending a concert in Las Vegas.

So far, authorities say that at least 50 people were killed and as many as 400 were injured. Those numbers could rise.

It’s the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.

This morning, Christian pastors, leaders and writers are responding on Twitter, posting their prayers and thoughts about the unspeakable tragedy. (This list will be updated throughout the day.)
