WORLD DAY OF REMEMBRANCEDear Lord of heaven and earth, Creator of all life, Ruler of all, Beloved- you will be praised!
ROAD TRAFFIC VICTIMS
shared by DEACON MARIAN WASIERSKI
Today, we your children bring to you our broken hearts, lamenting lives lost, injured, and changed forever through reckless actions taken by thoughtless drivers.
Today, we lift your children…we cry with those, whose loved ones have died, struggle with those whose daily life is now an upward climb and stand with those unsettled and uncertain about a world which no longer feels safe.
Today, we present to you our hearts, minds, and souls, guilty of those times we have driven under the influence of distraction, impatience, and fatigue. We confess, but for your grace, those “close calls” could have damaged or killed a child of yours destined for greater things.
Today we humbly ask you to guard and protect those who work tirelessly to rescue victims and heal and restore those injured. Give them strength and tenacity to endure the weight of so much unnecessary human misery. We ask you to inspire leaders to create safer roadways and lawmakers to enforce zero tolerance goals. We ask you to remove from reckless, speeding drivers their careless hearts of stone. We implore you to give all drivers accountable, responsible hearts of flesh.
Today we thank you for your love and forgiveness. This is our hope.
Dear Lord of heaven and earth, Creator of all life, Ruler of all, Beloved-You will be praised!
