Good afternoon Father!

We are angry!

sad!

afraid!

frustrated!

fed up!

discouraged!

hopeful!

and all sorts of other things that we cannot process fast enough in speech, on a screen, or even in our thoughts!

We feel disrespected!

misunderstood!

disgregarded!

Father, in Your awesome and holy power, we turn to you for

patience

goodness

kindness

mercy

justice,

hope,

faith,

and Love

from You, through Your Holy Spirit, because of Your son

and from our own hearts to our friends… and… our enemies.

God we grieve with those who grieve this day because death has come

at the hands of countrymen

due to the power of nature

because of our fallenness

O Great God and protector

Hear our prayers for resolution and peace

not just externally

but also internally

Amen.
