Children of Beslan
The Beslan hostages


A prayer for those in Beslan, Russia, and for the souls of those whose lives were taken today.

A thought or a prayer for those poor people in Beslan. Let us pray for the children, the teachers, the parents and family members who were accompanying their children back to school on their first day. God, in your mercy, give the survivors your love and warmth as they try to recover from their ordeal. Keep safe with you the souls of the unfortunates who lost their lives today. May the reunited families go back to their normal lives. Let us pray that forgiveness will come with time, that peace will return to the town of Beslan. May family members find the strength to help nurse their scarred families and help the survivors over their trauma. We pray for the Russian people at this time, impotent witnesses to the slaughter of innocents on their soil. God have mercy, Amen.

Dear Lord
We pray for the safe release of all the children and parents who were being held captive. May the hearts and minds of those who held them captive be guided that violence is not a mean to their dreams and may they forgive those who had caused harm to their own family members.

This prayer is one that I found on this site; it is often a comfort to those experiencing trauma. For all the families whose children did not make it out of the school gym alive, for all of the families and townsfolk who have experienced the ravages of waiting to see if their loved ones are safe,
for all of the children who have witnessed atrocities, for all of the Russian people who have watched in horror at the unfolding events of the past few days, we offer this prayer for love and strength:

A Prayer to Live With Grace
May we discover through pain and torment,the strength to live with grace and humor.May we discover through doubt and anguish, the strength to live with dignity and holiness.May we discover through suffering and fear, the strength to move toward healing.May it come to pass that we be restored to health and to vigor.May Life grant us wellness of body, spirit, and mind. And if this cannot be so, may we find in this transformation and passagemoments of meaning, opportunities for loveand the deep and gracious calm that comes when we allow ourselves to move on.

Oh Most Merciful and Forgiving God. Thou who hath saith "that children is a blessing from God". I thank you for the children you have brought into this world. I humble myself before thee, that you search my heart, soul, mind, and body and if I have sin against Thee I ask in the Name of Jesus to forgive me. For You are a Forgiving,and Loving God. Hear my prayer Oh Lord. Let the blood of Your Son, Jesus, overflow the country of Beslan and destroy the devil with in the evil ones and replace the terrorist and suicide with the love of Jesus. Comfort those children that are alive, the parents that are worrying, the teachers that have work so hard and the many, especially the Russian military that are giving their lives to protect the hostages. Most of all, Oh Precious Lord, I ask that Thy Ever Forgiveness will be place in the Hearts of all the Russian people. Help them to forgive their enemies and then the enemies will come to know of Your Son, Jesus, and serve and Glorify Your Name. In Jesus Almighty Name I pray. Thank You God, for thine answer. Amen.

Lord, You came to collect quite a few of Your children that day in Beslan. Please be with the bereaved as they suffer their losses. Thank You for helping to save as many lives as You did. It is comforting to me to know that while men can be uncomprehendingly evil, You are there to mitigate, to surround, and be all through us. Please see what You can do about not ever letting something so awful happen again. We'll do what we can on our end.
