Prayer: Weeping for Comfort

Matthew 2:18 (NIV)

“A voice is heard in Ramah,
weeping and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children
and refusing to be comforted,
because they are no more.”

Lord your sisters mourn the loss of your children in Colorado.  Comfort the families, friends and loved ones of the victims.  Hold them in your arms, wipe their tears, and make them aware you are with them.  Heal the wounded; give the doctors and other caregivers the strength, endurance and skill to heal them. Guide the public safety staff to secure the safety of the community. We also lift up James Holmes and his family.  It is in your name Jesus we pray. Amen.

Matthew 5:4 (NIV)

Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
