We are united in sorrow and in prayer for the victims of the horrendous atrocities in Tunisia and in a special way with their families and loved ones.

We pray for those who witnessed the attack and those who so courageously came to the aid of others.

Words can fail us on hearing such tragic news, but we recognise the importance of prayer and togetherness in our support for all those affected.

Father of mercy and compassion,
Look with love upon all those affected by the tragedy in Tunisia:
Those who were killed; their families and loved ones;
Those who witnessed the attack and were terrorised by what they heard and saw;
Those who are in distress and are still waiting to hear about a loved one.

May they experience your tenderness and presence
Through all those who reach out to comfort them
And may your healing love be the source of their comfort in this time of sorrow.

Through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
