“Protect us, O Lord”


“Protect us, O Lord” Painting: Ronald Raab,CSC

Lord Christ,

We come before you amid the flooding of West Virginia and the firestorms in California. We are wounded from the violence and hatred in Orlando and the continuation of violence in our cities of Chicago, New York and Los Angeles and more.

Give us resilience and courage, give us peace within our hearts. Send us the power of your mercy that we may turn to you in our need once again. Help us live in our cities listening to your words of consolation and healing. Allow peace to echo in the canyons of our cities.

We turn to you. Keep us from hatred and harm. Protect us. Love us.
