We come together today to remember our fellow Americans: all the men, women and children who died on September 11th, and all those who have died, been injured or otherwise sacrificed as a result of events that occurred that day.
We pray for the victims and the family, and ask that they know your comfort and your peace.
Lord, today our nation is fractured. We bear the scars of all we’ve endured, and like those before us, many wander around lost, their hope shattered. You promised in Your Word that if we would turn to You, mend our ways, that You would heal our land.
Many work against us coming together, Father, and work diligently and relentless to divide us. But today, we pray that America will turn its eyes to You, place its heart and hope in You. And that in doing so, we’ll find the healing promised in Your word.
Remember our heroes today, Lord. Remember all those they loved and all those loved love.
And plant the seed of desire to remember and emulate them in the hearts of those still here. Give us the wisdom, insight, strength and integrity to choose as a nation to turn again to You.
In Christ’s name, we pray.
