Lord, we #Pray4London. Comfort those who find themselves so suddenly bereaved, injured and scared. Strengthen nurses, doctors and pastors seeking to heal the pain.
Guide the police protecting our peace and enforcing your justice. Counsel our political leaders in the ways of wisdom and peace. Grant us grace to grieve well.
Tonight we long, more than ever for an end to crying and dying, bloodshed and hate, not just in London but in Syria, Somalia and South Sudan. Lamb of God, let your tears flow with ours, your blood flow with ours, your wounds heal ours.
Prince of Peace, take this great terror and when at last the time is right, transform the hatred of today into reconciliation and hope that does not die. Amen
