A Prayer for Boston

prayingIn light of the bombings during the Boston marathon, I wanted to post a prayer.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.

Please protect all of those impacted by the events this week in Boston, Mass. 

May those who sustained loss be covered by your love and care. 

May the injured be healed. 

May the city and its residents also heal – physically and mentally.

May the city of Boston come back from this stronger than ever.

May we not be afraid to gather at events such as the marathon because of fear.

May things such as this not happen again.

May time, love, and friends and family help in the healing process.

In your mercy Lord, please hear our prayer.

Amen.

This prayer isn’t just for those affected by this event but for all who are dealing with loss, pain and suffering.
