In the aftermath of violence and destruction it is often difficult to know how to respond. We are faced with many conflicting emotions. We remember not only the victims of the recent attack in Manchester, but all those who have suffered through violence and terror. We pray that this cycle of violence would end and we work earnestly towards that outcome.

Prayer for Justice

Jesus, you call those who follow you to look and act different from the rest of the world. You call us to be a just and loving culture. You call us to live in a way that shows we follow these two rules: ‘Love God’ and ‘Love your neighbour.’ Help us to live a life of love so that those who are watching will see you and want to follow also. Amen.
