Prayer for Uvalde

O God our Father, whose beloved Son took children into his arms and blessed them: Give us
grace to entrust your beloved children of Uvalde to your everlasting care and love, and bring
them fully into your heavenly kingdom. Pour out your grace and loving-kindness on all who
grieve; surround them with your love; and restore their trust in your goodness. We lift up to you
our weary, wounded souls and ask you to send your Holy Spirit to take away the anger and
violence that infects our hearts, and make us instruments of your peace and children of the
light. In the Name of Christ who is our hope, we pray. Amen.
