Lament for Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church and Charleston

We lament O God, this is not the way it’s supposed to be!

Nine dead – this is not the way it’s supposed to be!

Families broken – this is not the way it’s supposed to be!

Church and community and nation devastated – this is not the way it’s supposed to be!!

Hate, violence, guns and bullets – this is not the way it’s supposed to be!!!

Hear our cry O God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – this is not the way it’s supposed to be!!!

Rise up O God, we have no one to turn to but you.  Take action, Strong and Merciful Father.

Comfort all who mourn in shock, in pain, in suffering.

Feel our pain, collect our anxious hearts and minds.

Come to our aid in every way.

Rise up against the hater, the shooter, the murderer, the unrepentant perpetrators of violence.

Hear our prayers O God, with all our brothers and sisters – this is not the way it’s supposed to be!!!

Rise up, O God, redeem and deliver until “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done” on earth as it is in heaven.” Amen
