The Very Rev. Andrew Nunn, Dean of Southwark Cathedral in London, offers a prayer after the terrorist attacks of Saturday evening:

Loving God, when terror came to our doorstep
and stalked our streets
you were there with us
in the fear and agony.
Remain with us
and with all those caught up
in the horror of these events,
the injured and distressed
those who died
and all who seek your peace
which passes understanding.
