This morning my heart goes out to all those impacted by the explosions at the Boston Marathon which left 3 dead and 147 injured.
God in the midst of senseless violence,
Come to us today.
Hold close to those who grieve,
Comfort those in pain,
Grant peace to all who fear.
Let us see your unfailing love,
In the kindness of strangers,
In the compassion of friends.
Let us trust your guiding hand,
In those who seek for answers,
In those who work for justice.
Let us hope and trust in your mercy,
Knowing that you have not abandoned us.
