May we keep their families and others touched by violence in our prayers.   May we also pray for the perpetrators and the impact the violence will have on their lives as well.  

Remember the 40 immigrant detainees at the McHenry County Jail who have asked for our prayers this week. They are from 12 countries: Algeria, Brazil, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Jamaica, Kenya, Liberia, Mexico, Poland, South Sudan, and Trinadad/Tobago.           

Submitted each week by Mary Marling, Elizabeth Scanlon, and Kathleen Clark of the Unity Temple Unitarian/Universalist congregation where the names are read aloud at Sunday services.
