A Ramadan Prayer for My Sikh Brothers and Sisters

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Infinitely Merciful 

In the wake of this horrible tragedy in Wisconsin (and also the burning of a mosque to the ground in Missouri), all I can do is offer my heartfelt condolences to the victims’ families and the entire Sikh community in Wisconsin. My heart ached in pain when I saw what this barbarian did to innocent people who peacefully gathered to do nothing more than glorify our Lord in worship.

And I also offer this prayer:

Lord God, Beloved Lord of the Heavens and the Earth

Hear my prayer, Beloved King of Kings

Send down Your mercy and grace upon the Sikhs in Wisconsin 

Shower them with Your soothing comfort to ease their pain

Protect them and every community of faith from the attacks of the wicked 

Help bring all communities of faith together in brother- and sisterhood

Stand with us as we stand with them in this moment of pain and tragedy.

In Your Most Holy Name I ask this of You, Beloved. Amen.

    time and actual effort to generate a really good article… but what can
    I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get anything done.
