Oh heavenly Father! Please hold these bereaved families and friends close to Your heart! Give them peace and assurance that You are with them and that their loved ones are in Your presence, safe from all harm. Let them feel the Eternal God as their refuge and the Everlasting Arms underneath and around them. Jesus, please forgive the murderers; they do not know what they have done. Have mercy and bring them to realization of their utterneed of a Savior to call upon Your Holy Name. Amen.
