Lord Jesus Christ,
you turned the hurt and hatred of the cross
into a sign of hope and healing.
So today we pray for the people of France,
that voices will speak for calm,
hands reach out to the wounded and bereaved,
and communities learn in sorrow
new ways to live side by side
in respect and love. Amen.
