“We Cry Out” – An Original Prayer

From the depths of our hearts, O God
We cry out.
We repent.

From the depths of our hearts, O God
We cry out
For peace.

From the depths of our hearts, O God
We cry out
For mercy.

From the depths of our hearts, O God
We cry out
For justice.

From the depths of our hearts, O God
We cry out:
“No more.”

From the depths of our hearts, O God
We cry out:
“Ceasefire Now!”

Amen.

-John McDevitt, Paoli, PA
