Prayer For Those Affected by
Sandy Hook Elementary School
God, this loss I now grieve threatens to consume me. I have never felt so much sadness and hopelessness. Let your loving grace encompass me in comforting warmth like a blanket that shuts out the cold. My heart breaks and my Spirit is weak. Turn your face upon me and help me get through this trying time. Also, please help others who suffer from loss. In You, we find merciful comfort. In You, we find home and shelter from the pain. In You, God, we rest our weary souls and find strength we need to rise up and face our suffering. Thanks be to You, our dear Loving God. Amen.
