Another city. Another tragedy.

We grieve with the families who are changed forever. We grieve for a nation newly gripped by fear. We weep with those who weep. Hear our prayer:

Lord,

We ask for you to surround these families and all those involved in this horrific event. We don’t understand the enormity of this situation. In this moment, we don’t try to. We simply ask for peace for the broken hearts.

We know you draw near to the broken hearted and we thank you for that promise. We know your heart is broken too. We feel your grief, and we share our tears with you as liquid prayers. We cry out to you. We are at a loss for words, and so we simply say, help us. We are lost and wandering in this world and we say take us into your arms.

Give us your grace to get through this. Empower the people to love one another well in the time of grief. We pray for the days and months ahead when the hole in the hearts of family members becomes gaping, please fill it. 

Bring them out into the place of your grace and mercy. Show their tender hearts how to heal. You lost a son, so you know the pain they face ahead. Surround them with support from others. Give them your peace that passes understanding. Help us to love them well, as you love them. 

Oh God, hear our prayer

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
