We lift our prayers for peace.

Lord Help us to end this kind of hatred and violence.
 
Holy One, called by many names, our hearts are once again touched and broken by events in our communities. You created us from love and call us to love you and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Once again we find ourselves facing the reality that fear is among us instead of love.
sad face
We pray for the families and friends of those murdered and injured in these latest acts of violence, LORD.  We pray for ALL of our Faith communities globally and extend love, peace and comfort in the midst of yet another tragic moment. We pray for healing for the injured and for those lives that are torn apart today. We stand boldly as Christians believing that the love that comes from you is greater than the fear that destroys lives and communities.  Amen.


Let us all join together to stand for Love over Hate.

Shalom. Salam. Paz. Peace.
