A Prayer for Hope amid Dismay

God of truth and hope
in Christ you walk with your children
through the valley of the shadow of death.
Visit today all who know
the panic and terror and trauma and grief
of sudden, violent, ruthless attack.
Bless those injured, bereaved, horrified, dismayed.
Turn siege into renewal, fury into wisdom,
doubt into gentleness and tension into trust,
that as your people experience a Babel of tumult
you may transform their chaos into a Pentecost of peace.
In Christ our cruelly disfigured but beautiful and risen saviour. Amen

Revd Dr Sam Wells
Vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields
