Prayer in Response to Marshall Co. KY Shooting

God of peace and wholeness,
our nation suffered yet another school shooting this past week.
Two were killed and seventeen wounded in Marshall County, Kentucky.
We pray not only for the families and friends of those killed,
and for the physical, psychological, and spiritual wellbeing of those injured,
but also for ourselves.
Give us the resolve to embrace common sense gun safety
and bring an end to our unfettered culture of gun violence.
May we live to see the day when students and teachers not only feel safe,
but are safe in their schools,
and such senseless violence is but a distant memory.
Lord, in your mercy . . .
