"The killing must stop." Those were the words of Antonio Rocquemore, senior pastor at Powerhouse International Ministries of Chicago after another deadly weekend in Chicago left 6 dead and 62 wounded from gunfire. Of the victims, 11 are under the age of 18 years old.

Pastors and community activists are calling people to prayer in the face of this increased wave of violence in Chicago. Perhaps most shockingly is the number of children impacted by this violence. This year nearly 300 kids have been shot and at least 36 of them have died.
