Jesus, I pray for all people who are victims of senseless violence. For those who are killed in war, both members of the military and innocent civilians, Jesus help them. For people killed by random shootings in public places, both in the U.S. and abroad, help us to solve the root problems that lead to these tragedies.
Please be with families in domestic abuse situations everyday, and help those victims, especially children, with a way out. Jesus, thank you for the peace in our homes and communities but help us to be mindful and pray for all who suffer in other places. Lord here our prayer.
