Almighty Father, Sovereign Lord, God of Love and of Justice, we implore You to be with the many this day who are staggering under the overwhelming weight of grief and loss. We pray that you would reveal Yourself to them. Surround them with supernatural comfort during their great hour of need. Give strength to those who are ministering to the suffering, and have mercy upon those who are lost and grieving. Bind up the wounds of the injured and deal graciously with those who mourn. Give them the peace that surpasses all understanding; and, as You work in Connecticut, help us as a nation to repent. We have neglected Your laws; we have not brought up our children in Your nurture and admonition. We are a hard-necked country of lawbreakers and rebels. Help us, as a people, turn to You, to Your Word, that we may find true peace, true strength, true life. We ask this in the Name of Your Son and our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
