Prayer of Weeping for the Children

LORD God, heavenly Father, you once heard a voice in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they were no more; all because of the fury of Herod, outwitted by the Magi, when he wanted to kill the newborn Christ-child. Hear the voices that weep today over the children who have been slain. Impart the healing and comfort that you alone can give, through our Lord Jesus Christ who is risen and coming to the rescue of this dark world. Let the little children come to him!
