Votive Candles and Cross

O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of your servants killed at the Boston Marathon, and grant them an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Heavenly Father, giver of life and health: Comfort and relieve your servants injured in the bombings at the Boston Marathon, and give your power of healing to those who minister to their needs, that they may be strengthened in their weakness, healed from their injuries, and have confidence in your loving care; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
