As we remember 911 I hope we can think of it like a new Independence Day in
. Let it be a day to remember hope, love, and our dependence on God. May we seek to find favor and blessings from Him. America
Since the mayor of
will not allow a prayer at the 911 service which will be held, I will offer my own: New York
Our Father which is in Heaven,
As we remember those whom we love who have died on this hallowed ground, mothers and fathers, men and woman who gave up their lives ten years ago. Please remember the prayers of thy people. We are deeply saddened by the loss of so many of thy sons and daughters. Many of which were trying to help relieve the suffering of those still inside the towers.
We know that thou art a just God and knoweth all things. Thou knowest the hearts of conspiring men and those who would seek to destroy our country.
Today, as our country stands divided, wilt thou open a door to allow for Americans to see the light of liberty. Wilt thou allow thy Spirit to enlighten the minds and hearts of the Amercican people that they may seek a path of responsibility and prudence and trust in thee in all righteousness. Lord, bless us to remember we are One Nation Under God.
And this we pray, in the sacred name of Jesus Christ, Amen
