Prayer for those who died a violent death

Loving God,

Gather to your heart the victims of violence and hate.
In the wake of unexplainable suffering, walk with us.
Comfort those who lost loved ones unexpectedly and needlessly.
Renew their hearts with your grace. Wash them with your tears.
Breathe your life into their spirits.

Guide us through our fears and anxious moments.
Bless us with the knowledge of your presence always.
Raise up among us those who will tirelessly work for unity and reconciliation.
May we all become agents of your peace.
