Prayer: Westminster Terrorist Attack

March 22, 2017

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:21)

I ask all who read this to pray for those affected in the terrorist attack in Westminster earlier today, as well as for their families and friends.

Evil is real, but it must never be allowed to win. I give thanks that Londoners are mourning but still carrying on as normally as possible. God is love, and I pray for that divine love to fill the people of London and this nation. I pray that this attempt to divide us and make us hate, will instead lead us closer together.

An adaptation of a prayer for peace:

Compassionate God and Father of all,
we are horrified at the violence in our capital.

Hold back the hands that kill and maim;
turn around the hearts that hate.
Grant instead your strong Spirit of Peace – 
peace that passes our understanding
but changes lives, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen
