A prayer for Connecticut

 

Gracious and loving God,
you watch the ways of all of us
and the utter destruction of which our hands are capable – over and over again.

We implore you to weave goodness and grace
In the lives of those destroyed by senseless violence.

Surround those whose lives are shattered
with a sense of your present love.
Wrap them in the worn quilt of your compassion.
Though they are lost in grief,
May they find you and be comforted.

Amen

      You are so very welcome. I pray it will be a millisecond of balm in the tragic expanse of grief we are all experiencing.
