A prayer for the lost children
This is my prayer for the lost children:
Lord – Hear the cries! The cries that flood your protected earth, your creation.
Why must my younger and older brothers’ and sisters’ blood spill? What have we done to earn the punishment to live the rest of our lives with fear? Is this the end? We cannot end this!
We are only men, women and children. I am only one man. I did not create this world. So why should I live in it? What gives us the right to call this planet home? What gives us the right to destroy your creation and creations?
Lord, I do not understand your plans. I am tired of seeing my brothers and sisters turning into ashes or stone. Lord, I know this is all out of my hands. I ask you, please comfort the ones who weep and grieve for their children, and the ones they love but have lost, just as you have comforted me when I lost the ones I love.
May the souls of the lost children ride the seas of beauty and wonder, may their souls be at peace with our father. My hugs and prayers go to all those children, teachers and families of Newtown, Conn. Amen.
