A PRAYER FOR ARIZONA

America’s hearts are turning westward

Toward the saddened Arizona State;

We pray for all the shooting victims

And their families in this wailing wake

We know the heart of God is touched

As we together stand hand in hand;

That God will heal this churning chaos–

That is sweeping throughout our land.

 

We know of no better answer

Or political strategy —nor plan

Than to place every praying one of us

In the center of His holy healing hands.
