A Prayer for Boston

A Prayer for Boston April 16, 2013

Gracious and loving God
hear our anguished prayers

For your children
whose lives were taken

For your children
whose families were devastated

For your children
whose minds are capable of such evil

For your children
whose hearts are searching
for answers immediate and eternal

Speak oh God
through the hands and feet
of first responders

Hear oh God
through our fumbling attempts
at comfort and compassion

Know oh God
with our suffering
bodies and minds

Be oh God
the salve
on this gaping wound
in our humanity.

  1. Thank you! Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this tragedy. We would like to use your prayer for our Sunday bulletin. Would this be OK?

  2. Thank you for your prayer. May I publish it in the JJB website? We have readers from different parts of the world, and I think many would appreciate it.
