I have been praying for all those affected by the tragedy in Boston. But in the midst of it, I realized that I am not praying for justice, but am instead praying for redemption. It's so easy to jump on board the hate train and wish the worst on our enemies, but the fact of the matter is that the perpetrators of the recent attack in Boston are just as worthy of mercy as we are. Jesus made no distinction when He gave his life for the entire world. The price of justice has already been paid. I am praying that God will bring redemption to the victims, the perpetrators and the entire situation. Our God brings beauty from ashes and joy from mourning. God hates events like this as much as we do, but I praise Jesus that He is a God of redemption... And no person or event is beyond redemption.

I just thought I'd share.

I am in agreement, Ryan.  You couldn't have said it better.
