Prayer following Orlando Massacre

Gracious God, you, too, are weeping with those who weep. Comfort all who have lost loved ones, strengthen those who are afraid, and protect all those in danger from others' hatred. Prevent us from becoming numb to such violence, help us to work for change, and keep our horror from turning into blame or hatred. Heal those who have been injured in body or in spirit, and welcome those who have died into your eternal home. We ask all this in the name of your Son Jesus, who showed us your love both in life and in death and who promised to be with us always. Amen.
