PRAYER OF PEACE:
For Ukraine, and help for all those who are suffering, grieving, or displaced, because of the evils of war.
Today we remember those who have died by gun violence, those who have survived gun violence, those who mourn deaths of family and friends by gun violence.
Aching with sorrow we grieve this pain and death that surrounds and fills us….
Today we remember deaths and fears of death rampant in schools, homes, and workplaces.
Marching for their lives, young people awaken us to action. Listening at last we rise up to face the horror; we confess ourselves complicit.
Let us pray together. Forgive, O God, our wrongful action and our inaction. Forgive our silence and indifference. Lead us in love, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.
May God who is our hope inscribe our hearts with justice and guide us in the ways of peace. Amen.
