A Prayer for the Borough Market inquest

A PRAYER AS THE LONDON BRIDGE AND BOROUGH MARKET INQUEST PROCEEDS

Bishop Christopher asked the Dean of Southwark Cathedral to write this prayer and urges us to remember in our prayers all those affected by the terrible events that happened on 3 June 2017 in Borough Market and on London Bridge.  There will be a service in the Cathedral on 3 June to remember those who died, were injured and affected by the atrocity. 

‘Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses ….’ (Hebrews 12.1)  

Lord Jesus, your scars bore witness to your suffering as you stood before your friends. Bless those whose scars have been reopened, whose memories have been stirred, whose pain has been revealed, whose selfless acts recalled, whose heroic actions told, whose stories have been shared, whose tears have been shed, as testimonies are heard in the London Bridge Inquest. Hold us with your wounded hands and bring us your peace.  Amen.
