Prayer to End the Insanity
Blessed, Holy Source of All,
once again we are shocked by the violence -
Once again, we call to you to mend our broken hearts -
our broken lives.
Once again, we search our beings for hope -
help us to look at the true cause for this insanity.
Help us to see into the heart of such unspeakable evil.
Help us to face the demons of our making and stop
that which seem unstoppable.
teach us to stand against those in power that refuse to make the changes needed.
Teach us to stand strong against those who live in hate with the world.
Teach us to stand in loving-kindness, even when all around us run away.
hold those in South Carolina close to your Heart.
Hold those who have suffered from hate and violence in your Love.
And, hold us all in your Grace so that we can do what needs to be done
to end this insanity.
Amen, Blessed be, Aho
