American Red Cross

As we mourn for those affected by these tragedies, we invite you to join us in prayer:

Lord, in our shock and confusion, we come before you.

In our grief and despair in the midst of hate,

in our sense of helplessness in the face of violence,

we lean on you.


For the families of those who have been killed we pray.

For the shooters—help us to pray, Lord.

For the communities that have lost members—their anger, grief, fear—we pray.

For the churches striving to be your light in darkness beyond our comprehension, we pray.


In the face of hatred, may we claim love, Lord.

May we love those far off and those near.

May we love those who are strangers and those who are friends.

May we love those who we agree with and understand,

and even more so, Lord, those who we consider to be our enemies.


Lord, have mercy.

Heal our sin-sick souls.

Make these wounds whole, Lord.
