Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, please show mercy for TRAVON's family! Sweet Jesus, we are a hurting land, a hurting angry people in many places. Please by your mercy keep peace in our land.

For the peace of the whole world, for the well being of the holy churches of God, and for the unity of all let us pray to the Lord:

Kyrie Eleison, Kyrie Eleison, Kyrie Eleison.

Let us also pray for the Zimmerman family, who, despite the verdict of innocence, will now be considered fair game and walking targets for people of ill will.

Aye, I also fear for anyone who resembles this exonerated former defendant, and any one who bears his name--like one of my high school teachers of many decades ago.

Lord have mercy!

Not that he was guilty (I don't think he was) but there were no winners here. Just the injustice of tragic circumstances.

Let's pray for George Zimmerman because his life ahead will be one of constantly looking over his shoulder for those who think they will correct what they perceive as a failure by the justice system. I've just heard of calls for "the 'hood' to take care of him."

Both people in this tragedy didn't think: one is dead; the other forever marked.

I also think we should pray for the jurors that their names not be made public. The Anthony jurors have been treated as pariahs in Florida since they found Casey innocent. Such is the power of the media to distort what the justice system is called to be doing and to slant coverage to their own agenda.

And let us also pray for the media--and its insatiable consumers--that it (and they) would be purged of such lust for blood.

Let us acknowledge and bewail that we have contributed to those appetites.

Lord, have mercy.

Lord have mercy!

A man will forever have the death of someone in his heart, will be in hiding and fear the rest of his life, a family will forever be mourning their child, and a nation will continue to use race as a reason to hate each other and to ignite passions.

There are no victors here.

Lord have mercy on all.

Indeed! I couldn't believe that it was on television daily...
The media of the Empire chose who its gladiators of the day will be, and the crowds' passions rile seeking blood, just as you said, Pastor Thomas.

Even guilty Cain, slayer of his brother Abel, had more protection than Mr Zimmerman (Gen 4:15)

But every Baptized child of God carries the mark of Christ, and the powers of Hell shall not prevail against Him!
