Written By: on Jul 21st, 2012 and filed under Columns, Features, Opinions.


Heavenly Father our Benevolent Lord,
Creator and Sustainer of us all, hear us, Your children, at this time of unbearable pain. We come to You because You are our Savior and Benefactor Who grants peace and solace to those who suffer. It is only You that can heal our wounds and ease our pain.

We here by pray that you protect and comfort the citizens of Aurora, Colorado at this time of terrible tragedy of trial and crisis. Shield them and us under the shadow of Your Cross. Grant to us, especially those friends and families in Aurora, Your peace, Your love and assistance. Bestow solace and strength to the families of the innocent victims of the barbaric acts of violence in Aurora.

Christ our eternal King and God, You have destroyed death and the devil by Your Cross and have restored man to life by Your Resurrection; give rest, Lord, to the soul of Your children who have fallen asleep in this tragedy, in Your Kingdom. Touch and heal those injured and fighting for their lives in this tragedy. Work through the doctors, nurses, and emergency crews helping those injured and their families.

Help us and people throughout the world to comprehend that we are all your children. We are all brothers and sisters created in your image and likeness. Guide us to live in harmony with one another, respectful of each other’s human rights and human dignity.

We ask this of you; for You are a benevolent and loving God and to You do we ascribe glory, to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Amen
