Let Us Remember Well
For those who are gone, Lord, let them rest well. Safe in your arms.
For those who are hurt, forever changed, Lord, grant them peace and healing.
For those who are angry, Lord, grant them grace and a step to take.
For all of us, Lord, help us to remember, to understand, to love,
and to work toward a world where this will never happen again.
Let us also remember this week all of those who are struggling with natural disasters.
Hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, flooding.
We don’t know why these things happen, but we can always trust that You are in control,
and can bring forth beauty from the ashes.
