Let us pray:
light in the darkness,
love and peace,
our strength in weakness.
We need you.
Gather us in your vision for a peaceable earth.
Hold us in the palm of your hand.
Welcome us with outstretched arms.
These tragic moments strike us at the very core of our being and
We are appalled at such senseless acts of violence.
We mourn the innocent lives lost and
pray for those for whom unnecessary grief is now the new norm.
In a time when the world is deeply confused
on how we live together as one people,
God shine your light, fill us with your love,
so that we may be a united and visible sign
of your loving presence in a hurting world.
We stand stronger together
on this journey as sisters and brothers,
neighbours and friends.
Our church sign will say:
Love over hate.
We are all children of God.
