A 9/11 prayer
Pour out your blessing and comfort today on those personally affected by 9/11.
Comfort those who long for family members lost on that terrible day.
Restore our country's empathy for human life.
for creating disunity when we disagree
instead of unity by working together.
Sustain us in the hard times to come.
Heal us from the suffering we've endured
and help us see that you walk with us through every trial,
you hold us through every trauma,
you redeem everything we put into your hands to control.
Bless us because that's who YOU are,
not because we deserve your blessing.
We are already blessed to overflowing.
I praise you and love you.
In Jesus' holy name,
"'Many nations will be joined with the Lord in that day and will become my people. I will live among you,' declares the Lord." (Zechariah 2:11)
