Our Lord God who made the heavens and the earth, we praise your Name. We bring our sacrifice of praise to you and we ask that you receive it. We are nothing without You.
Lord I visited the Holocaust Memorial and I have seen firsthand what happened to the 6 million Jews who perished under Nazi tyranny. May they rest in peace, O Lord. Lord after this tragedy the world promised itself that it would never forget what happened and to work to prevent any such outrage Lord it has been proven that we have broken this promise over and over and many other holocausts have happened and some are still taking place before our eyes. Lord we so quickly forget and repeat our behavior with new excuses. The victims of yesterday become the perpetrators of tomorrow. Give us all O Lord the ability to forgive and to resist the temptation to unleash wickedness under any guise and to look the other way when we can help. Without your help we will never be able to live peaceably with each other. Give us strength to do that. May evil be overcome O Lord. Amen (4/24/16)
