Resources on Violence

The tragedy of frequent mass shootings is placing a spotlight on violence in general and school shootings in particular. NFCYM offers these resources  as a means to assist in the conversations, reflections, and prayers for the victims of violence in our society.

Lord, we pray for those who have been devastated by recent tragedies. We remember those who have lost their lives so suddenly. We hold in our hearts the families forever changed by grief and loss. Bring them consolation and comfort. Surround them with our prayers for strength. Bless those who have survived and heal their memories of trauma and devastation. May they have the courage to face the days ahead. Help us to respond with generosity in prayer, in assistance, and in comfort to the best of our abilities. Keep our hearts focused on the needs of all the community. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
