A prayer for Nice

By Michael Ruffin

O God,

We reel from the news of another devastating attack, this time in Nice, France.

We are moved by the irony that it happened on Bastille Day, when the French people celebrate their freedom.

Help those families directly impacted by this tragedy. Give them grace to grieve appropriately.

Help the people of France. Give them grace to deal yet another blow to their nation.

Help all of us. Give us grace to live in faith and hope, and not to live in fear.


Michael Ruffin is interim pastor of The Rock Baptist Church in The Rock, Ga. The prayer first appeared on his blog, Prayer 365.
