Prayer for all the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut Massacre:




Lord, I pray that the souls of the Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut Massacre victims shall have by now found their place at Your side, and enjoy the bliss from Your love and care. They suffered from pain, but I know that with the touch of Your hand, all these scars and wounds shall immediately heal and vanish. Comfort also their loved ones, the people they left behind on this Earth, their hearts also torn from the irreparable loss resulting from this carnage. Give them the strength and courage, Lord, to face life, and the patience as they seek justice for the cruel and evil deeds brought upon the person by savages belonging to Adam Lanza.

I pray, Lord, that never again shall such abuses be tolerated in this community, and in any community, state and country. Keep all your people safe from any danger and always protect them in your mantle of protection.

Amen.
