Prayers for Fort Hood

For Those Who Died:
REMEMBER thy servants—the victims who were murdered today at Fort Hood, O Lord, according to the favour which thou bearest unto thy people, and grant that, increasing in knowledge and love of thee, they may go from strength to strength, in the life of perfect service, in thy heavenly kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost ever, one God, world without end. Amen.

For Those in Mourning:
O MERCIFUL God, and heavenly Father, who hast taught us in thy holy Word that thou dost not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men; Look with pity, we beseech thee, upon the mourning of thy servants for whom our prayers are offered. Remember them, O Lord, in mercy; comfort them with a sense of thy goodness; lift up thy countenance upon them, and give them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

For Those Who Were Injured:
ALMIGHTY God our heavenly Father, we beseech thee graciously to comfort thy servants in their sufferings and to bless the means made use of for their cures. Fill their hearts with confidence, that though they be sometime afraid, they yet may put their trust in thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
