Prayer for Community Loss

God of Wisdom,
We are grieving beyond measure
and struggling to make sense of such a profound loss
for parents, friends, and the entire Marquette community.
We commend to you our hurt and unknowing,
trusting in your all-embracing love.

Bring us into the hope and light of your Son’s resurrection.
Help us to rely on you, as we support one another in these difficult days,
and keep us ever mindful that you are near – to love and comfort all who mourn.
All of this we pray in the name of Jesus, who lies and reigns forever and ever.
