A Prayer for Chardon

A Prayer for Chardon

Gracious God, Lord of All,
We thank you for this day and for your grace.

And we ask you, on this the first anniversary of that awful day, to bless the victims of the Chardon High School shooting—bless Danny, Demetrius, and Russell. Bring them into your Beloved Community. Please help Nick recover from his injuries and live a good and productive life. We ask you to help the others who were wounded, and all those wounded in spirit. Bless their families.

We even ask you to bless T.J. Lane, his parents, grandparents, family, and friends. Bring your redemption and forgiveness.

Good Lord, help us to find a way to heal the victims and find a way to prevent such as this from ever happening again.

Finally, Loving God, thank you for Chardon, our home. Continue to bless our Community.
