A prayer for the people who died in the lorry found in Essex

A prayer from the President and Vice-President of the Methodist Conference


for unknown people who have died in a lorry

for unknown suffering to family and friends

we pray with heartbreak and sorrow




we know this should never happen

we know that behind the headlines there is an unheard story of despair

we know that we have overlooked things we should have seen

we know that as individuals and a society we need to change 


for God’s sake

bring us to our knees in contrition

and to our feet with outrage
