Lord, we come to you numb, in grief and just not sure why such a tragedy has occurred. We pray for the families that have been impacted by a tremendous, unexpected and tragic loss. We pray that you comfort the families as they blaze a trail that many of us have never experienced. Lord, protect them from outside opinions and criticism. Allow them to grieve in peace with people closest to them, people that are connected to you and your love. We pray that each soul lost in the helicopter crash has returned back to you in peace. Lord, we need you at this moment, from no other can we seek from what you provide, a peace that surpasses all understanding.
