The Primates of the Anglican Communion prayed to honor the victims of the shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada, today.

More than 50 people were killed and more than 500 were injured in a shooting on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday evening, marking the worst mass shooting on American soil.

The following statement was sent from the Primates of the Anglican Communion to Bishop Dan Edwards of the Diocese of Nevada.

"We were greatly distressed to learn of the dreadful events in Las Vegas last night. The scale of the loss of life and the numbers of injured is truly shocking. We are sending our deepest condolences to you and to the people of your diocese -- in particular, the people of Las Vegas.

"We are praying for the families and friends of those who have died and for the many people who have been wounded. We remember, too, everyone else caught up in this tragedy -- including the emergency services (first responders). We pray that the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ will be with the people of Las Vegas as they endure this trauma."
