Gracious God, mighty comforter, rock of all ages,
Today a nation remembers when the world changed within moments. Today a community mourns the loss of another young person taken in the spring of their youth. We know you mourn with us, we know you hold those who died within the comfort of your embrace. We ask you bring peace beyond our understanding to a nation, community, family and friends today. Abba, today we surrender all this to you and ask your loving breath, your spirit flow over us. Amen and amen.
