A Prayer Following a School Shooting

This week, we find ourselves lost…

Lost among the hurt,

the pain,

the media,

the arguments being slung back and forth.

Remind us that You have found us

and are with us.

That when we are busy arguing about laws,

you have a covenant.

When we are worried about who is right and who is wrong,

you are concerned about who needs love.

Open our hearts to your truth.

Give us compassion to feed a hungry world – hungry for your love.
