Prayer for Peace

Standard

2 days after the Boston Bombings. The toll has reached over 170 people injured and at least 3 dead, one of them being an 8 year old boy. I would say that words can’t express my heartache, but that would be untrue to a point, as one of the only ways I can express heartache is through the written word. There is nothing in my life that could compare to the sorrow of losing a loved one due to an attack by a stranger. A man or woman that has no feeling for what he or she is about to do. No remorse. No regret. Possibly even a feeling of accomplishment and success.
The pictures flash across the screen of wounded spectators and injured runners. Blood stains the streets and sidewalks. Innocent blood shed and for…for what?…a reward in a twisted heaven? A warped idea of fame?
Comfort, peace, support, and love is my prayer tonight for each family who has needlessly suffered loss, wounds, and a shaken foundation. Let the Creator of the Earth use this tragic event somehow for good. God is not to blame, but serves as a refuge for confused, discouraged, and weary souls. Blessings to those who cannot imagine a day without the unique individual whose life has been cut so very short. Peace to their overwhelmed minds and an unexplainable sense of comfort to their souls. And may God bless the selfless heroes of yesterday who could never be thanked enough.
