Prayer after the Pensacola Shooting

O Holy One,
comfort, O comfort, your people
gathered together from many places —
those who call you
Emmanuel, Adonai, Allah.

Speak tenderly to Pensacola
and to parents and friends
of those killed —
Joshua Kaleb Watson,
Mohammed Sameh Haitham,
Cameron Scott Walters,

and gently lead those who care
for those still injured.

Whatever it takes to end the violence —
ways of the heart made straight,
valleys of terrorism lifted up
and mountains of hatred brought low,

guide us to these ways,
the ways of peace. amen.
