A prayer in times of perpetual violence

A prayer in times of perpetual violence March 22, 2016

Oh God!
It has happened.
My heart is numb
as I learn
of evil unleashed
by your Children.
Again.

Open my heart,
Wounded One
that I may feel.
Again.

Oh God!
It has happened.
My eyes are dry
as I watch
images of your Children
shredded by violence.
Again.

Open my eyes
Compassionate One
that I may weep.
Again.

Oh God!
It had happened.
My ears are baffled
as I hear
sounds of your Children
screaming and weeping.
Again.

Open my ears
Healing One
that I may hear.
Again.

God, oh God!
It has happened.
My voice is silent
as I read
the words of your Children
toxic with ignorance and vitriol.
Again.

Open my mouth
Speaking One
that I may pray.
Again.
