Gracious Father we come to you today with heavy hearts. Please comfort the victims of today’s tragedy. Thank you for the mercy that you show to all little children by welcoming each one of them into your kingdom. Thank you for meeting all of the victims at heavens gates with an army of angels. Lay your hands on all the ones we lost today and all of their families and friends. Forgive us for the hate that has filled our hearts, we are only human and do not know that grace that you have. We do not know if the one who took their lives loved you or hated you. We do not know if he believed in your son Jesus Christ. We do not know what your relationship with him was and it is not ours to judge. You are the only judge and the only jury, we have no place in either. Have mercy on our thoughts towards him. Bless us and bring us together to support and love each other. May this bring us closer to you. In your precious sons name, amen.
