Praying for the victims of the Orlando shooting

There is a candle stand in the nave of Southwark Cathedral where people are lighting candles in prayerful support of those affected by the atrocity in Orlando. You are invited to join us in prayer. This is the prayer that people are being invited to pray.

Creator God,
you love us without distinction
for you made us different and beautiful;
hold in your everlasting arms
the victims of the attack
on the gay community in Orlando
those who were killed,
those fighting for their life,
the injured,
traumatised survivors,
grieving partners and parents,
lovers and friends;
and send upon us all your peace,
which passes understanding,
in the name of Jesus Christ,
your son, our brother.
Amen.
