Prayers for the victims of the Orlando shooting
On June 12, 2016, 49 people became the victims of a mass shooting at an LGBT nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
This weekend, at all three of our services, we will remember these victims by praying for each of them by name.
Please join us in praying for the victims who lost their lives in this terrible attack, and for their families and friends.
Grant, O God, that your holy and life-giving Spirit may so move every human heart [and especially the hearts of the people of this land], that barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatreds cease; that our divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
-from the Book of Common Prayer p. 823
