Two Prayers In Response to the Newtown Shooting
Even when we fail, when words fail, when tears fail, You will not fail us. We turn to one another, we turn inward and in humility we turn to You. Assist us with your grace to change our world, our nation, our communities, our lives and our minds to the ways of peace and love. And when we fall short, lift us with Divine arms and hold us close until we can try once again. Amen.
From Grief to Action
Heaven has opened wide its gates for those who have passed from this way of life to the next. Let us light a candle in the darkness for those who grieve and tend to their needs in the days, weeks and months to come. Give us the insight to help those who suffer from/in mental illness. Fortify our will to look at national and state legislation with a view to take the assault out of weapons. Hear us, Holy Wisdom that your peace may rest upon us. Amen
