Prayer for May 27, 2022

May we never forget, Alexandria Aniyah Rubio, Alithia Ramirez, Amerie Jo Garza, Annabell Guadalupe Rodriguez, Eliahana Cruz Torres, Eliana “Ellie” Garcia, Eva Mireles, Irma Garcia, Jackie Cazares, Jailah Nicole Silguero, Jayce Luevanos, Jose Flores, Layla Salazar, Makenna Lee Elrod, Maite Rodriguez, Miranda Mathis, Nevaeh Bravo, Tess Marie Mata, Uziyah Garcia and Xavier Lopez and make those names among the last we hear named as victims of leaders inadequate to the task of doing what is right to protect the innocent, O God of All Creation. May we do what is right to make the changes in our society so that mental health and public safety outweigh our supposed need to have weapons that are only designed to break one of your commandments. Give us instead a sense of the need to make this world a place where swords and guns are turned into ploughshares. All this we ask in the name of the God who calls us to love one another as he loved us. Amen
