Dear Lord, God, Above all Gods, You are our Father, and I know that you watch over your creation. This is your world. Earth is your footstool. We on earth are people you created. Lord, when we feel depressed and confused over all that is happening around us, help us to remember that You are there . You comfort us and fill us with your peace. Let us know that you are there in the storms , and the storms of our lives. Calm our fear, and give us peace. When we are hurting, and sick, and we don’t know what to do, please be with us, and give us patience to endure the pain that we are dealing with. Let us remember that Jesus suffered on the cross for us, and our suffering is only a portion of what He suffered. Let us remember to think of you when we suffer ,and think of Jesus , the Son. You care for us, because I know that you are loving, kind , and good. You are wonderful, our teacher, our hope, and our lives depend on You. You give us breath, life and truth. Thank you Jesus, and the Father , for taking care of your children. Save us from the evil one. Amen
Return to Prayer for Depression
Terrorist attacks hit us hard. These prayers for peace and comfort are a collection of sympathy messages and support for survivors from people all around the world, via Facebook and Twitter.
“There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go,” is one of my favorite quotes in Words of Comfort When Your Heart is Broken. We don’t want to accept the terrorist attacks, but we have to. Our hearts and souls rail against the suffering of the survivors and their families, against the death of innocent bystanders. The first thing we can do is offer prayers for peace and comfort after a terrorist attack. Then we need to look for ways to help, to be Jesus’ hands and feet. To minister, serve, and bind wounds.
I send my heartfelt sympathy and condolences to the survivors after the terrorist attacks in Paris and Beirut. My heart is broken for the deaths of innocent people, for the suffering of the survivors, for their families, and for the citizens. I’m deeply saddened by the news of terrorist attacks in Paris, Beirut, and other parts of the world, and I want to spread messages of comfort, peace, and healing.

We bow our heads and send prayers for peace and comfort. We send our love and sympathies, and we want you to know that you’re not alone in your suffering.
I’m sharing two collections of prayers for peace from Facebook and Twitter, after the Beirut and Paris terrorist attacks…
Facebook Prayers for Peace and Comfort
Waking up to a disaster, the terrorist attacks that happened in Paris. Prayers go out to the people in Paris that have lost their loved ones. We are with you France. – Nathan King.
As I read about the terror attacks in Paris, France, my heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to the victims and their loved ones, says Srikith G Nath. My prayer goes up for those who survive. For the victims, that they will find the strengths to cope with the tragedy. May they press on, and find wisdom to reconstruct their lives for the path ahead of them.
I pray that lives lost in such a senseless tragedy will be a turning point for the community and the world at large:
- That at all levels of governments, leaders will enforce justice and ensure that such a crime will never happen again
- That humanity will be inspired to stand together and help protect every single person regardless of his/her creed, culture, colour, custom and country of origin
- That we will never stand by and do nothing against the forces of evil. We will stay vigilant and do our part to help look out for the world around us and keep it safe and secure for all our children and children’s children.
My prayer and hope is that this heinous crime will not bring about any negative reaction and outcome but that it will start a new day of peace, kindness and compassion. – Srikith G Nath.
We cannot isolate ourselves from what is happening in different parts of the world… the constant violence and battles and this morning the news of terrorist attacks in Paris. Let us unite ourselves with the many people who are suffering and the victims of violence. We pray for their families and we pray for their countries. – Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle.

Respect and prayers for the victims of last night’s terror attacks in Paris. Politics aside, let’s not forget the real people lost, the sacrifices made by these poor souls and their families, because humanity can’t get it’s act together and get along. – Rev. Nix Eradicatus.
Sending prayers for those who are suffering in Paris because of this very tragic incident. May God give them strength during their time of great loss and grieving. My thoughts and prayers are also with these people who keep on generalizing the whole Muslim population and Islam in blaming terrorism without even educating themselves on the religion. Learning other beliefs doesn’t mean you are betraying your own, it just helps you understand and respect other people more. World peace! – Zhia Kate.
Please dear Lord, protect us from this evil that continues to haunt us. Please give those that are Yours the wisdom and the power to use the technology that is already in place, and to create new technology and prevent further tragedies. I also ask that You send Your comfort and healing to those that this has touched both in physical and in mental capacity. I ask these things in the name of the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit. Amen…. Doris Ann Williamson.

Why send prayers for peace and comfort after a terrorist attack?
“After posting prayers for Paris, France, and our world someone issued a post about prayer as a waste of time and energy,” said David Weekly on Facebook. “The important thing is to get involved in justice work. Double-blind studies indicate that prayer effects both the one praying and the one unknowingly prayed for in ways we do not understand. Beyond this, prayer is not passive; it is one dimension of compassion. Practical acts of care, including working for justice are extensions of prayer for many people of faith.”
One of my favorite theologians, Fred Rogers, said “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” May we be helpers today.
