The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him. (Nahum 1:7)
O GOD our Father, our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble; support, we pray, all who are distressed and now suffer as a result of violence and tragedy in Plymouth; and give them courage to endure and faith to overcome.
Holding before them your Son, who suffered for the sake of love the pain of the Cross, may they know the comfort of your love; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
And we pray for all those who have died.
RECEIVE, O Lord, in tranquillity and peace, the souls of your servants who, out of this present life, have departed to be with you. Grant them rest, and give them the life that knows not age, the good things that pass not away; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
REST eternal grant to them, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon them. May they rest in peace, and rise in glory. Amen.
