    To my ears, from outside the US, the phrase when uttered by those with political power to change the parameters governing a tradegy, seems to mean, "we are not willing to initiate political change, all you can do is pray".

    I think within US culture it may be more of a gesture of solidarity with a religiously oriented public.

    Maybe over here, we get only reports of the empty words emplying religious language, not repirts of the actions to back them up. Hard to tell, really. Words are cheap everywhere.
