Especially as one who used to live in the Twin Cities...
Please pray for those who died, the injured, and those who are awaiting word about loved ones.
(My family is accounted for. I actually do know the Minneapolis Fire Chief, in the thick of recovery operations. His name is Jim--he's actually a permanent deacon--please pray for him and other responders to this tragedy.)
