A Prayer for the People of Manchester

God of compassion and mercy,
amidst the pain and trauma of this day we turn to you,
for through Christ crucified we know that you have taken to heart the suffering of our people.

In fear and anxiety, strengthen us.
In despair and pain, comfort us.
In incomprehension and anger, reassure us that your love and life are stronger than the hatred and violence which overshadows our city today.

Console those who carry a burden of loss, injury, or trauma and empower all who support them.
Strengthen all who seek to stand together in peace and unity.

We pray in the name of Jesus.  Amen. 




Let us build a house where all can dwell

and all can safely live,

a place where saints and children tell

how hearts learn to forgive.

Built of hopes and dreams and visions,

rock of faith and vault of grace:

hear the love of Christ shall end divisions:

All are welcome,

all are welcome,

all are welcome in this place.


If you are from wider Europe and living in Leigh on Sea and Southend, you are welcome in this place.

Churches Together in Leigh.
