Prayer for the Boston Marathon Bombing.

Lord, we ask for mercy in these violent times.

For the heartless acts of violence against the helpless. Lord, have mercy.

For the acts against children and the innocent. Lord, have mercy.

For not putting the lives of others before our own. Lord, have mercy.

For seeking to do evil to your creation. Lord, have mercy.

For rebelling against you. Lord, have mercy.

We pray for those who lives were cut short. Lord, hear our prayer.

For those who have been heartlessly murdered. Lord, hear our prayer.

For those whose innocence has been shattered. Lord, hear our prayer.

For the families that are now broken. Lord, hear our prayer.

For the communities now recovering from painful tragedy. Lord, hear our prayer.

For the healing of your creation, we cry out in a loud voice. Lord, hear our prayer.

For the times when justice will not be something we seek, but will be something you have placed in all of our hearts. Lord, hear our prayer.

We pray these things in the name of Christ Jesus, who rules and mourns with the Father and the Spirit.

We wait for the fulfilling of your Kingdom, the one Kingdom, whose world will be without end. Amen
