29 Dead in 24 Hours

O Lord embed your beauty and goodness deep in our hearts and hear our lament.
We cry out because people are being murdered in our land faster than our eyes can brim with tears.
And honestly Lord, we sometimes feel as if you are far too passive in the presence of this evil.
We want you to protect us from this hatred, Lord

We cry out because people are being murdered in our land faster than our eyes can brim with tears.
We fear our hearts will grow numb to this common occurrence of gun violence.
We want you to protect us from this hatred, Lord
Don’t let our tears dry up and our prayers lose their pain.

We fear our hearts will grow numb to this common occurrence of gun violence.
And honestly Lord, we sometimes feel as if you are far too passive in the presence of this evil.
Don’t let our tears dry up and our prayers lose their pain.
So, Lord, embed your beauty and goodness deep in our hearts and hear our lament.

About Joe Chambers

I am the beloved of the Most High God. I am an avid reader and writer and have been a continuous learner since my college studies in Ancient Literature and English. I live at the base of Mount Princeton in the Colorado Rockies with my wife of over three decades. I believe I have been put here to tell people that God is not mad at them and to show them the way Home. I am the father of three sons, three beautiful daughters-in-law and four grandchildren. I love to read, tell stories, and spend time in the wilderness.
