    A Prayer for Aid Against Perils
    Be our light in the darkness, O Lord, and in your great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of your only Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen. -BCP 1979
    Amen and Amen

    Prayer for Trust in Jesus O Christ Jesus,
    when all is darkness
    and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
    give us the sense of Your presence,
    Your love, and Your strength.
    Help us to have perfect trust
    in Your protecting love
    and strengthening power,
    so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
    for, living close to You,
    we shall see Your hand,
    Your purpose, Your will through all things.

    --- St. Ignatius of Loyola

    I've just heard about this. Terrible news.

    May God grant peace and solace to the victims and their families.
