A prayer for the people of Sri Lanka:
God our saviour,
look on this wounded world
in pity and in power;
hold us fast to your promises of peace
won for us by your risen Son,
our Saviour Jesus Christ.
The light streaming through our Baptistery Window at dawn on Easter Day reminds us that God did and does look on our wounded world in pity and power. May his promises of peace sustain those walking through death’s dark valley today.
