Lord our God,
you are always faithful and quick to show mercy.
Our brother/sister _________
was suddenly [and violently] taken from us.
Come swiftly to his/her aid,
have mercy on him/her,
and comfort his/her family and freinds
by the power and protection of the cross.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
