this week is mired in tragedy, Lord, and i ask you to be with us in our anger and as we grieve.  i ask for forgiveness for the blame game we play as a nation, for the spiteful things we say about each other, for the glee we take in making others look bad.  i ask for wisdom in our leaders and media.  i ask for strength for the victims, and gratitude for all of us.  i ask for mercy on the bomber, that when he is caught he will be remorseful.  i ask for moments of joy that remind us how wonderful this life is.  help us to turn away from sin and towards the truth.  hold me nearer to you so i can feel your presence guiding my choices.  amen.
