Prayer for the Victims of the Aurora Theater Shooting

Our hearts and thoughts are with the victims of today's shooting in the Aurora, Colorado movie theater. We pray for them, their families, and those who have contributed to these horrific acts.

Lord,
We woke this day
with the news of death and injury in Colorado,
learning of an experience hard to imagine
or comprehend.
Stay close to the victims of this massacre
and their families and friends;
support them in their loss and pain,
heal their minds and bodies,
and bring them new life.
Renew hope in the people most closely traumatized
and heal the minds those who are tempted to take innocent lives.

Grant unto them eternal rest, O Lord,
and let the perpetual light shine upon them;
May their souls and all the souls of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God,
rest in peace.

Amen.
