DAY 13 – A Prayer For The Ivory Coast

My heart goes out to the victims and the families of those who were trampled to death  at

the New Year’s stampede in my mother’s country, The Ivory Coast.

***********

“Bless those who mourn, eternal God

with the comfort of your love

that they may face each new day with hope

and the certainty that nothing can destroy

the good that has been given. May their memories become joyful,

their days enriched with friendship,

and their lives encircled by your love.

Amen.”

–c 1991 Vienna Cobb Anderson, Adapted from “Prayers of Our Hearts”
