Prayer after the Shooting in Greenville Texas

God, we remember with confidence
the promise that your home
is the one with so many rooms,

but this is not the homecoming
that we would wish.

We pray for tender comfort
to surround those who mourn,
for gifts of medical care
to hold in this life
those in critical condition,
for wisdom of law enforcement
seeking with risk
the shooter still at large.

And for all who came to party
to laugh and dance,
wear Halloween costumes,
and meet friends,
may there be newfound peace,
an ease of fears, restful sleep,
a chance to smile again.
amen
