Prayer for Club Q shooting, Colorado Springs

Holy One, now is the crown broken
on this Realm of Christ Sunday,
in the terrible loss of your children–

for all the reinterpretation
of how to shape community
is set aside and the lineage
of crucifixion wins,
passing on to those, like you,
who challenge all the narrow loves.

We pray for families and friends weeping,
for those in Penrose Hospital
and UC Health Memorial Hospital
and those who care for them.

And we pray for all who were there
whose lives will always
be shadowed by fear.

On our annual commemoration
of Transgender Remembrance
for so many killed this year,
this thanksgrieving time
of gratitude for their lives,
and grieving for their loss,

we open our hearts to you,
victim of violence,
risen into hope – appear for those
who wake this morning
with broken hearts.
