A prayer for the people of Paris

Posted By : Tom Clammer Saturday 14th November 2015

God of justice and of comfort,
always close to us,
hearing the cries of your people;
into the shock and turmoil of this weekend,
into the lives of the people of Paris,
into the broken people and places of our world,
and also into the hearts of those
who would hurt and kill and destroy to make their point,
speak your peace, bring your consolation,
and remind us again to look for the coming of your Kingdom,
where there will be no more tears or pain;
we ask it for Jesus' sake, our neighbour and our friend.
