Another Mass Shooting…Prayer from the Presbyterian Mission Agency

Holy One,

Another mass shooting.
Another family wailing.
Another community crying.
Another city grieving…

More pain.
More tragedy, trauma and fear;
More violence, horror, destruction and death.

In our communities.
In our states.
In our nation.
In our world.

We are broken.
Heartsick, hurting and in need of healing.

Come, O God.
Hold us close.
Hela your people.
Help us bring peace.

Make us
Activists and
Agents of change,
Embodying our prayers
With heartfelt action.


Prayer by The Rev. Dr. Diane Givens Moffett,
President & Executive Director, Presbyterian Mission Agency
