time of prayer

O Lord, our hearts are heavy because of the violence and deaths in Connecticut. This is beyond our capacity to fully understand. But more importantly, Lord, there are many families who need support, love, comfort, in the midst of their tears, unanswered questions, heartaches, fears, doubts, anger. We humbly lift them to Your throne of grace so that they may receive Your care, love, compassion, mercy, and comfort. We pray for the care-givers in that community. Give them strength, patience, and encouragement as they minister to the families; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever. Amen
