Today, and every day, we pray for the innocent victims of terrorism, conflict and suffering throughout the world.

We offer a warm welcome to anyone who wishes to visit Durham Cathedral to pray, worship or simply find a quiet space to reflect.

God of grace,
surround us and all who mourn this day
with your continuing compassion.
God of love,
turn our hearts to your ways
and give us peace.
God of hope,
renew our faith
in a world beyond this veil of tears.
