A Prayer for the People of Newtown CT and all who mourn today.

Gracious Lord, 
in our darkest hours we, your children, either cling to you for comfort and solace or we hide our faces from you as we hold you responsible for the evil of this world. Help us to remember that the tears you cried over Lazarus mingle with our own on this day of mourning and anguish. Help us to remember that you have received these innocents into your loving arms. Pour out your mercy on those whose loved ones were lost and give us your grace and wisdom and comfort as we seek your will for our lives as living members of Your Son, Our Savior, Jesus Christ, the lover of souls and defeater of death. Amen.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
David Dubay+ 2012
