  • Father God, please continue to comfort those who have suffered great tragedies even years after. Heal their wounded hearts and give them greater strength to worship and praise You. I also pray for those affected by the Palm-Sunday bombing: time to heal and love from our brothers and sisters in Christ. We know this is not our home: praise Jesus.
