Lord, please hear the cries of your people in Sri Lanka. Comfort them in their loss and provide for them hope in the future, and peace knowing they will be reunited with their loves ones someday. Protect them from further persecution and evil acts against them for believing in the one true God who is alive and active. Bring their neighbors together in support, and may this tragedy rise up new and faithful followers of Jesus and strengthen fellow believers. In your loving name we pray, Amen.
