A Prayer for Hope and Peace

IMG_0447.JPG

Oh God
One who knows and sees all human hearts,
We remember.

We remember those lost in acts of violence:
Terrorism
Armed Conflict
Gun Violence
Abuse

We call to mind those who still struggle with these after-shocks:
Hurricanes
Floods
Tornados
Earthquakes

We ponder the lives missing from our lives:
Cancer
Congenital conditions
Medical mistakes
Infections
Disease

Humanly caused or a random weather event,
We still ask,
“Why?”

We have no answer
But Your abiding Presence
Your voice in the wind
Your hand in the clouds
Your beauty in creation
Your compassion demonstrated through others

Today
When we stop to remember
To think
To pray
To voice the yearnings of our hearts
Bring your hope
Give us your peace.

Thank you for always being
Our Compassionate Guide
Our Wisdom
And our comfort.

In Your most Holy Name
Amen.
