Pretty certain thoughts and prayers isn’t anyone’s phrase, and ask generally (which we mocked progressing after what happened in a residence of prayer?) is a genuine action, a petition to, a review with, God — in this case, to ask protection, comfort for those suffering.

Our thoughts prayers do matter.
No, prayers won’t move behind desired ones, though prayers move comfort, remit God’s beauty to those who mourn.
Anyone who’s mislaid a desired one to comfortless death, murder, or apprehension knows prayers matter.
Don’t let @AOC or a left tell we otherwise.

The BBC notes a smallest age to possess a firearm in New Zealand is 16 and 18 for a military-style weapon.
