Hillsborough Prayer

A Prayer for the thirtieth anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

O God of all power, wisdom and love,
source of all truth and justice
to whom we must all one day render an account:
look with mercy, we pray, on the children of the city and region of Liverpool
and especially on the family and friends of the 96.
As we acknowledge all those whose support
has finally brought us to this day
so we ask you now to heal the bitter wounds of the past
to give us thankful hearts for the present time
and to grant us great hope for a better future
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
