Tragic Loss of Life recently

The terrible events in Dallas, in Baton Rouge, and in Minneapolis over recent days has caused innocent blood to be spilled in the name of our prejudice of each other, or simply that we are different.
We grieve for those who have been killed, we mourn with their families, and we weep for our nation and communities. But we do not weep alone… Jesus wept with Mary and Martha over Lazarus, and he weeps with us today.
Please pray for them and for us.

Heavenly Father, in your Word you have given us a vision of
that holy City to which the nations of the world bring their
glory: Behold and visit, we pray, the cities of the earth.
Renew the ties of mutual regard which form our civic life.
Send us honest and able leaders. Enable us to eliminate
poverty, prejudice, and oppression, that peace may prevail
with righteousness, and justice with order, and that men and
women from different cultures and with differing talents may
find with one another the fulfillment of their humanity;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(BCP)
