Prayer, Plain and Simple

“God, have mercy. Hear our weeping, our groaning, our silence. The terrors of the massacre in Newtown Connecticut have broken our hearts and stolen our clear thinking. Horror is all the prayer we can muster. We have no words. Do you? Please, say something. Comfort us, with your presence, your embrace, and your calming Voice. Father God, oh God, is that you weeping with us? Can you speak through your own tears? Or is it enough to know you too are grieved and promise only to walk through with us? You are comfort. Come and be I AM.”
