Prayer for Guidance

Heavenly Father,
we turn to you
in our time of danger.
Defend us
from further acts of terrorism.
Defend us
also from hating
and from the desire
to seek revenge
rather than justice.
Defend us
from rash judgments
and from mistaking
our neighbors and friends
for our enemies.

--Archbishop Daniel E. Pilarczyk
