A Prayer for September 11

Hear our prayers, O Lord,

let our cries come out to you.

The years pass away like smoke;

let us remember  the people who have gone ahead.

Yet let us pray for our enemies.

O Lord our God,

Forgive our sins as we forgive the sins of others.

Let your angels camp around the righteous

and lead the sinful back to you, O God.

Living in a world with much grief and distress,

Our hearts ache and our prayers strained.

You are the king of all kings, the head of all governments.

We seek your blessings above all.

O Lord, protect our family, our countries;

Give us peace in our hearts

even though there is no peace around us.

Grant the leaders wisdom and righteousnous,

Grant them a heart of love and selflessness.

Holy is the Lord, he reigns over the Earth,

He is our salvation and our hope.

O Lord,

Let us remember that

We are not home yet.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.
