Loving and compassionate Lord, we pray for all those who were injured, suffered loss of friends and loved ones, and all who have died in this terrible tragedy. Receive and comfort them in Your arms.

Strengthen and heal those who responded and whose spirits were injured by this tragedy as they sought to protect and aide these students and teachers.

And for those who now travel and seek the reassurance of reuniting again with loved ones we pray that you will place your gentle healing breath upon each of them that they may always feel the warmth of Your love and protection. In Christ’s name we pray.
