An American Prayer | On the Fourth Sunday Following a Killing Spree

Patient and enduring God,
One week has passed in silence 
since we sought a clear word from you 
on gun violence.

With that week passed also
130 of your children, 
dead from gunshots 
along American streets and 
within American homes. 

How long Lord? 
How long must 
we wait 
for you 
to act?
