Prayer of Remembrance and Dedication
‘As one family, we reflect today on the horrors of the past that
continue to haunt humanity and darken our world.
Where pain still overwhelms, bring healing.
Where hearts are still breaking, bring comfort.
Where peoples are still oppressed, bring liberation.
Where communities are still victimised, bring justice.
Where children are still brutalised, bring compassion.
Where lives are still crushed, bring hope.
Where evil is perpetrated, bring repentance. Where war still devastates, bring peace.
But most of all, wherever a single voice cries out in the darkness,
bring us to one another, in the name of the love You
bear in Your heart for all people, all nations and all creation. Amen.’
