Dear God,

As we stand here today with God’s people, we pray for all the people who lost

their lives this morning.  Our lives are all in your hands.  We bow our heads

and remember the people in those buildings and places for whom there is no

tomorrow.  We lost so many people but we especially remember those who lost

moms, dads, aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, granddads, grandmas, friends and

neighbors.  We join hands in God’s name for them and for us that we may be people

who love and who build peace. Amen.
