Prayers for the Christians of Sri Lanka, for those killed by the Easter Sunday bombings, for those harmed, and for their surviving families.

O Lord, grant a peaceful repose to all those who have been killed, forgiving them every sin.

O Lord, grant healing to all those harmed.

O Lord, plant in the heart of the murderers seeds that can grow and take root and lead to faith in You.

O Lord, keep safe from harm all those who have placed their faith in You.

Lord, have mercy!

Christ is Risen!

“On the day of the Sri Lanka massacres, Christian Freedom International’s director in a restricted country said a young Muslim man in his country showed up to learn about Jesus. ‘He has lost all his faith and honor in Islam because of seeing the brutal, inhumane acts of Islam in this world. He is seeking a better God to serve. Please pray for him.’”

Holy new Martyrs of Sri Lanka, pray for this Inquirer!

May he be the first fruits of this newly-cast seed of the church!

It is almost inconceivable that so much death and destruction would occur at once, but it did. Lord, have mercy.
