A Prayer Against Gun Violence

Let us remember all who have been harmed by violence. We acknowledge the strength to those who survived and of those still struggling to heal. For their sake and for ours, we commit ourselves to building each other up and to healing – together.

Let us remember the families and loved ones of those who have died from gun violence. We acknowledge their pain and their deep grief. They too, are part of our community and need our love and help towards healing.

Let us remember the perpetrators, and the families of those who commit violence. We acknowledge that their lives, too, are devastated and their hopes dashed. For their sake and for ours, we remember that pain goes in many directions from each act of violence.

We will stand up to violence. We stand together expressing our unity, our connection to each other and to the divine; our hope for healing and for transformation. Let the Spirit of our Creator move through us. Help us to transform and heal our communities. And let us begin by transforming ourselves. Amen.
