Prayers for the tragedy in CO & all those in pain...

We never know what each new day will bring. 
We hope for joy and peace 
Or at least the comfort 
Of predictable routine.

We're never prepared 
For the intrusion of Evil 
Acted out through 
Harm and mayhem.

When death rips life
From our grasp,
When horror blurs
Our sight,
Have mercy on us, Lord.

Hold our aching souls
Guide us through
Dizzying grief,
Listen to our wailing "Why?"

Be the Comfort we may not even know we need
As we live through this brand new mourning. Amen.

Brand New Mourning
by the Rev. Dr. Kwasi Kena, GBOD
