Beautiful Prayer for the Families in Newtown, CT


From Brenda Husson, Rector of St. James’ Church, New York City:

Dear Friends,


Today’s events in Newtown, Connecticut, are among the most heartbreaking imaginable. Our prayers are certainly with those who have died and their families, as well as the first-responders, doctors, nurses, school officials, counselors, and clergy who are hard at work in the face of this tragedy.


Most merciful God, whose wisdom is beyond our understanding: Deal graciously with the people in Newtown, CT, in their grief. Surround them with your love, that they may not be overwhelmed by their loss, but have confidence in your goodness, and strength to meet the days to come; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
