A Prayer for the Dead at Virginia Tech

All merciful God, we lift up before you those slaughtered at Virginia Tech. We plead with you to have mercy upon their souls and bear them up to your place of eternal refuge. And we bring before you their families and friends, whose joys were so suddenly and violently cut short by the forces of evil. O Great Physician, heal their wounded spirits, and bring them to the wholeness that can only be found through you. We ask this confident in your lovingkindness to your beloved creation, and thank you for your healing power already at work in the Virginia Tech community. Amen.
