A Prayer For Sandy Hook School ~ By Pastor Bob Arbogast

O God,

you who know the sorrows of earth:
our hearts ache
for the little children of Sandy Hook School
and for their mothers and fathers;
our hearts ache
for the teachers
and for their loved ones;
our hearts ache
for a community in such deep sorrow.
We hear their cries.
It is Rachel, weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted,

because they are no more.

Lord Jesus Christ,
we know that your heart aches,
that you weep with great sorrow,that you, too, feel the pain.
Have mercy, therefore.
And since we seem helpless,
unable or unwilling to protect even little children from great harm,
Lord Jesus, come quickly.
Come quickly to make right what is so terribly wrong.
