A prayer for the Sikh community

Almighty God, we ask you to be with us at this time of tragedy at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek. Our prayers go out to their congregation and to the entire Sikh community.

Help bring an end to senseless violence in our community and in our world. May terrorism, bigotry and racism cease to exist in our world. Bring us hope for the future. May the American spirit of respect, tolerance, civility and unity be strengthened as we come together this day.

We pray for those affected by this terrible event. We pray for those who have died. Bring comfort to those who have lost loved ones, family and friends. Help all of us to unite in support for this community.

Bring us light in what seems like a sad darkness that we live and worship in peace and comfort.

Amen.
