A prayer for those affected by the Manchester bombing

Published: 24 May 2017

God of compassion, You hear the cries of all who are in trouble or distress; accept our prayers for all affected by the bombing in Manchester. We pray especially for those suddenly facing a future without a child, parent or loved one. Young ones who are in deep distress and those who are injured, traumatized or awaiting news. Strengthen them in their hour of need, grant them perseverance and courage to face the future and be to them a firm foundation on which to build their lives; This we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.   This candle is a focus for our continued prayer for the victims, their families and the City of Manchester in the coming days.
