Prayer for Sri Lanka

Christ, risen with holes
in hands and feet and side,
this Easter comes to us with a hole
in all of our hearts.

We pray for all the people of Sri Lanka
torn from holiness to violence,
for those who mourn
lost family members and friends,
for those wounded and hospitalized
those who are caring for them,
and those seeking to restore peace.

May our alleluias turn to tears,
our rejoicing
be an embrace for those who mourn,
and our faith in the resurrection
claim for each one
the stone rolled away
and the grace of life eternal. amen
