Father, please comfort those who are grieving the loss of loved ones from this massacre. Fill them with faith and peace. Protect them from doubt, discouragement, and bitterness. Provide for them in this time of need: healing for the injured, and recovery for all who were attacked.
Grant the government the will and the resources to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice – Lord, may justice lead them not to destruction but to repentance and to faith in you.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
