It's been a long time since I've posted, but I thought if there were ever a case for this community to pray, this is it:
As you have probably already heard, there were two explosions today at the Boston Marathon. Please let's all pray for those involved:
Dear Lord, please bless all those in Boston and their loved ones
Please heal the wounded;
Please console the aggrieved;
And please welcome the dead into Your Kingdom.
If this is an act of terror, please have mercy on the perpetrators,
Show them the path to Your forgiveness;
and help us all to remember that You bring about the good in all things.
For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
