A Prayer for Virginia Tech

The campus has been abuzz about the massacre of over thirty students some 2 1/2 hours from us at Virginia Tech. In light of the grave reports join me in offering this prayer:

God of Compassion,
you watch our ways,
and weave out of terrible happenings
wonders of goodness and grace.

Surround those who have been shaken by tragedy
with a sense of your present love,
and hold them in faith.

Though they are lost in grief,
may they find you and be comforted;
through Jesus Christ who was dead, but lives
and rules this world with you. Amen.
