Father of mercy, God of comfort, remember this day the people of Munich. Remember those who have been wounded and grant them Your healing and Your peace. Remember those who have lost loved ones this day, and help them to find hope in the promise of resurrection and the life without end. Remember those in positions of civil responsibility, and give them courage and wisdom. Remember those who carried out these heinous acts, and grant them repentance that they may turn from serving death and violence and find forgiveness in the arms of Him who is everlasting Love, even Jesus Christ, who poured out His blood to blot out the sins of the entire world. We ask these things in His name. Amen.

A Prayer For Baton Rouge and the continued strife in our country: All merciful Father, we cry to You in the name of Jesus for those who serve as police. We know they put their lives in danger often to protect our communities and we give You thanks for their faithful service. We remember the officers killed today in Baton Rouge; comfort their families with the promise of Your new heavens and new earth where sorrow and pain are no more. We remember the officers injured today; grant them healing and restoration according to Your good and gracious will. We remember all who serve in our police forces and beg Your protection upon them as they carry out their responsibilities. We remember all who are angered and troubled over injustice in our land; help them and all of us to find constructive ways to address our national challenges. We pray for our nation: Grant peace, we pray, in mercy, Lord; Peace in our time, O send us; For there is none on earth but You, none other to defend us. You, only, Lord, can fight for us. Amen
