Remembering Others Today

prayersWe remember those in Alexandria, VA who were shot today and continue to recover from their injuries in the hospital. We also hold in our thoughts and prayers those family members and friends who have lost loved ones in  a fire at Grenfell Tower in North Kensington in London along with those being treated for injuries.  Remembering these words from our Liturgy In Time Of Crisis (Moravian Book of Worship)

God of mercy, God of comfort, we come before you in this time of difficulty, mindful of human frailty and need, confused and struggling to find meaning in the face of suffering.

We are grateful that even as we share in the joy of Christ Jesus, we can also share abundantly in the comfort in the midst of suffering.

We pray for those who are suffering and can make no sense of tragedy.

Help them to turn to the One who embraces us in our lives–even Jesus Christ, who lived and suffered among us.
