We pray tonight for the 2 dead (including an 8 year old child), At least 132 injuries reported, 17 are critical; 8 are children.
Gracious God, Welcome into your arms the victims of the violence and terrorism in Boston. Comfort their families and all who grieve for them.
Heal the injured and maimed. Sustain all the helpers. Help us in our fear and uncertainty, And bless us with the knowledge that we are secure in your love.
Strengthen all those who work for peace, And may the peace the world cannot give reign in our hearts. Amen.
For those with children...
"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping." ― Mr. Rogers
