All too soon once again we are grieving with all people of good will for the victims of the suicide bombing in Pakistan which has killed over 70 people and injured over 300. During this week of mercy let us ask our God to hear our prayer:
Prayer for Victims of Terrorism
Loving and Merciful God,
Welcome into your arms the victims of violence and terrorism.
Comfort their families and all who grieve for them.
Help us in our fear and uncertainty,
And bless us with the knowledge that we are secure in your love.
Strengthen all those who work for peace,
And may the peace the world cannot give reign in our hearts.
We ask this in the name of Christ who has Risen from the deadand gives us renewed life and hope. Amen
