A Prayer for Tuesday, September 6
Comfort those who mourn
Lord, as we approach the anniversary of day filled with pain and violence, we add our voices to those who are even now crying out in mourning. We lift up the plea of those still in pain over the loss of loved ones ten years ago. We weep with the countless people who are suffering and dying every day, as well as though who feel cursed to survive. And we cling to the hope that while they are countless to us, you see each face and know each name. Holy God, as we mourn with those who mourn, we ask for your comfort, your protection, your deliverance from injustice and death. Hasten, O God, to save us.
