God of Love and Peace,

We lift up those who have been impacted by violence—

violence both seen and unseen.

We pray for individuals and for communities who are hurting,

who are grieving, who are troubled, who feel trapped;

and, we pray that you continue to heal these deep wounds.

With your Spirit and with your people,

work in their lives to bring physical,

emotional, and spiritual restoration.

And God, help us do our part in your healing work.

For we long to see your love and peace prevail.

In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen
