Oh God, help us.
There is violence in our streets. Hatred is unrestrained.
Guide us in Your truth. Teach us the way to go for in You only is salvation.
We wait for You.
Remember Your compassion and faithful love. They have existed from antiquity.
Do not remember the willful sins or our acts of rebellion and cruelty.
Remember Your faithfulness and Your goodness.
You are holy and upright, our hope when all looks hopeless.
You call to us and shows us the way out of darkness.
You lead the humble in what is right and teach us Your ways.
You show us the truth.
Please forgive our sin, for it is great.
If we acknowledge You, humbly, reverently, You will show us the way.
We are lost without You.
Turn to us and be gracious to us, the lonely and afflicted.
When the distresses of our hearts increase, bring us Your peace.
Guard us, deliver us, for our refuge is You. We wait for You to redeem us from our despair.
We wait for You
From Psalm 25 after another news report of senseless killing.
