Prayer of the Day: Wisconsin Shooting

By the Web Editors 8-06-2012

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world. Have mercy on us. Grant us peace. For the unbearable toil of our sinful world, we plead for remission. For the terror of absence from our beloved, we plead for your comfort. For the scandalous presence of death in your creation, we plead for resurrection. Come, Holy Spirit, and heal all that is broken in our lives, in our streets, and in our world. [In the name of God the Creator, the Redeemer, and the Sustainer.] Amen.

The prayer for today is excerpted from "Prayers for Peace Offered to the Victims of Wisconsin Shooting" which is featured on the God's Politics blog.
