          Dear God, violence continues throughout our world and death continues to be ever present in the news. We can so easily become discouraged and live in a state of fear but help us to draw closer to You and know that Your love casts out all fears. Fill us with unwavering faith and guide our footsteps so we may confront those who would bring harm to our people. And Lord, be ever present and bring comfort to those who are in harms way and especially to the families that have lost those they love. In Your Holy Name we pray. Amen.
