We are praying for the victims and families of the horrific attack in Manchester and giving thanks for the dedication of emergency and medical services.
Compassionate God and Father of all,
we are horrified at violence in Manchester.
It seems that none are safe, and many are terrified.
Be with all those in pain and anguish that they may know your healing love.
Hold back the hands that kill and maim; turn around the hearts that hate.
Grant your strong Spirit of Peace –
peace that passes our understanding, but changes lives,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
St Michael’s Church will be open between 11am-1pm to light a candle, reflect and pray for all those involved.
We will praying for and remembering all those killed, injured and traumatised by the bombing at 7pm Eucharist.
