I was asked to give final prayer today after the field service meeting. I asked for Jah to bless and comfort the families of the Newtown, CT massacre. An elder pulled me aside after the meeting and said that asking for that was not appropriate. I mentioned Luke 6:27, and said that if Jesus said to love our enemies why not pray for innocent families????
He said that JW's don't do that, we offer spiritual help to families, like studies, Return visits, etc.
That being said, I made an excuse and didn't go out. (said I wasn't feeling well) Man, I am so angry why is that wrong?
