At a time of year when we try to celebrate the true nature of love…we see the fingerprints of darkness…the shadowy figure in our midst, rising up.
We gaze in horror at our little electronic window to the world…and weep with those whose loss we cannot imagine.
The little innocent lives that were taken…the world that was shaken.
Lord, comfort those who are grieving…
As we hold our children a little closer…show us Your path to peace, spread Your healing balm upon this land.
