Collision Records Christion Gray, who is 1/4 of the We Live as King’s Collective, agreed with Comedian Chris. As photos and videos began to flood Twitter, Facebook and Youtube, and go viral, Gray, sensed that people may be growing numb to these images despite the severity of the matter. He tweeted a wounded man hunched over and bleeding in an effort to encourage his followers to earnestly pray for the entire City of Boston.

Syndicated Radio personality and Youtube funny man Willie Moore Jr. showed his frustration before also advocating prayer for the victims as well as our nation:

Please continue to keep the victims and families in prayer. While many are indeed hurt, we are thankful that at this point, the fatalities aren’t as high as they could have been. Many of these families will be mentally and even spiritually affected for years after this, though. Pray that God will allow them to heal as best as possible.
