Heavenly Father, on this day, a terrible act of brutality was visited upon our people. We ask for your grace upon the souls of those who died this day, and the loved ones they left behind. Bless those who, today, work unceasingly to protect us all from further acts of violence. Change the hearts and minds of those who murder the innocent in your name. Help us to remember Christ's victory over all death. Lead us all to you, Lord, in a true unity, begotten not of blood that was shed in anger, but shed by your Son, out of love for us. Amen
May God Bless America!
