List of Names of The Sandy Hook Elementary School Victims | A Prayer Offering

Posted on | December 17, 2012 | 3 Comments

Today is the second day after the tragic Connecticut shooting incident. The townspeople are now preparing to bury the dead and offered a mass at Newtown United Methodist Church.

Prayers were offered for the victims and 28 candles were lit representing each person who died that day including the gunman and his mother.

As you read this post, I encourage you to offer a short prayer to the families of these 26 victims killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Wherever you’re at right now, you can help. You may not be able to offer financial assistance or offer a crying shoulder to the families or give words of encouragements to them but your sincere and heartfelt prayers are more than enough to help these brokenhearted families.

Below are the names of the 20 children and 6 adults killed at Newtown. Take a moment to read each name and offer a prayer that may their families be comforted by the grace and love God in this difficult time.

This is my prayer :

Almighty Father, you above all knows how painful it is to lose a child. You felt greater pain when you gave your Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins on that cross. So I ask You dear Father to comfort all the families of those who lost a loved one last December 15, 2012. To every mother and father who lost a child, to every sister and brother who lost a sibling, to every grandparent who lost a grandchild, to every soul who lost a friend, I pray that may your love abound in them and that may they be filled with your grace. Make them strong in this difficult time and help them face each day with strength. Embrace them with your loving arms and comfort their grieving hearts. Let your peace be among us and you grant us the heart to forgive as you have forgiven us. I entrust to you everything dear God, in Jesus mighty and precious Name, Amen.


Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

    With the media sensationalizes a crime, putting more emphasis on the one who committed it rather than the victims who suffered such barbarous act, it is no wonder that more and more high profile crimes are committed in the last 20 years than in any decades prior.

    Instead of remembering the name of the one who perpetrated it, let us remember those names who were victims.

    May their memories and names be engrave in our hearts.

    True, it is indeed sad that the criminal gets more attention than the victims. Not only does it make being a criminal look awesome but more disturbingly, it develops a negative feeling towards the people. Instead of healing from the pain, the frequent repetition of how the cruelly bad the criminal was only creates more room for hatred in the hearts of the people. i hope that may the media focus more in helping the public recover from a tragic incident rather than put more salt into the wound.

  • Hi Arvy, you and dice are absolutely right… I have had this experience when my brother was murdered by criminals.

    Much has been said how the criminals did it than how my brother defended his and the lives of others.

    It is a tragic thing to have a member of your family being murdered. It is different, totally different than just having someone died a natural cause or an accident. Murder is just on a lot new level. It is difficult for the family members as well as the community where it happens.
