Prayers for Victims of Gun Violence
June 12, 2016
For those affected by the mass murder in Orlando, Florida
Lord, we are stunned by the violence of hatred and our spirits are heavy with grief. It is beyond our understanding. We pray for those who have lost loved ones, may they feel Your peace. For those who have been injured in body and in mind, comfort them; and for those souls now with you, grant them rest.
We remember, Lord, the slenderness of the thread which separates life from death, and the suddenness with which it can by broken. Embrace all of us with you love; give us hope in our confusion and bring peace to all. In the face of hate and violence, we will love one another.
