As the inquest into the London Bridge attack continues, Bishop Christopher requests that you should continue to hold all those who were drawn into the attack and its aftermath in prayer.
A prayer as the London Bridge and Borough Market Inquest proceeds written by the Very Revd Andrew Nunn, Dean of Southwark
‘Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses ….’ (Hebrews 12.1)
Lord Jesus, your scars bore witness to your suffering
as you stood before your friends.
Bless those whose scars have been reopened,
whose memories have been stirred,
whose pain has been revealed,
whose selfless acts recalled,
whose heroic actions told,
whose stories have been shared,
whose tears have been shed,
as testimonies are heard
in the London Bridge Inquest.
Hold us with your wounded hands
and bring us your peace.
