Prayers Ascend this Day from Broken Hearts

Categories: News

We offer our prayers for the victims, and their families and loved ones, who have suffered from Monday’s bombing during the Boston Marathon. Our hope is in the name of the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth, and the author of our salvation; and our hope is in the fullness of resurrection. In a world intent with this hope – and when we serve those who suffer – love will prevail, and violence will be defeated.

Eternal God, in whose perfect kingdom no sword is drawn but the sword of righteousness, no strength known but the strength of love: So mightily spreak abroad your Spirit, that all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of Peace, as children of one Father; to whom be dominion and glory, now and forever.
