God of love and mercy, embrace all those whose hearts today overflow with grief and lives touched by this tragedy. Immerse them in your love and lead them through this darkness. Give them strength heavenly father. Pls help them as they feel despair to find hope in you. Reward them with the consolation of your presence and love.
Eternal rest grant those whose lives were lost. We ask through Jesus Christ whose own suffering brought us life here and for eternity. Amen.
