Prayer for Peshawar

God, receive into your broken heart
these children of Peshawar,
for they should have led us —
wolf with lamb, leopard with kid —
but there is still hurting and destruction
in all of your mountains.

Bless the hands of those
who are caring for the wounded —
comfort, comfort your people.

Hold,hold tightly, the weeping parents
rachels, jacobs, people whose names
we may never know —
they shall not be consoled.

For this day, O God,
let us go,
and lead gently
those who are not with young. amen
