Let’s take a moment of silence and pray:

Father, God, I come to you today asking that you give us our streets back. We are tired of hurting. Tired of losing our loved ones. Tired of crying, struggling and not being able to make it back home.

God, I just ask that you put an end to the violence, so our kids can play freely again and not fear being killed.

Let’s return to a time when we can enjoy being outside and not have to run from bullets. We come on bended knees, oh Lord, pleading. Please give us peace and safety in our streets.

In the blessed name of Jesus Christ, let the church and the people say, Amen. Happy Father’s Day Everyone!
