A Prayer of Remembrance

A prayer composed by the Presiding Bishop of
the Episcopal Church
We remember this day your children of many nations and many faiths whose lives were cut short by the fierce flames
of anger and hatred.
Console those who continue to suffer and grieve, and give them comfort and hope as they look to the future.
Out of what we have endured give us the grace to examine
our relationships with those who perceive us as the enemy, and show our leaders the way to use our power to serve the good of all for the healing of the nations.
This we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord who, in reconciling love, was lifted up from the earth that he might draw all things to himself.
