9/11, We shall never forget, we shall keep this day, we shall keep the events and the tears in our minds, our memory and our hearts and take them with us as we carry on!
Prayerful Rememberance of 9/11
Each anniversary of this tragic day, I make a habit to set aside a substantial amount of time for myself to pray.
For me prayer stands at the heart of this day. I pray for those who lost their lives in 9/11, as well as for their families and friends who continue to mourn the loss of those with whom, just one day earlier, they had walked and talked; for those who, in ways known and unknown, selflessly reached out to victims and survivors alike; for those brave first responders, fire fighters and physicians, police and military personnel and officials, clergy and counselors and coworkers, who brought comfort and hope to friend and stranger alike; and for everyone still struggling to make sense of that which, by nature, is senseless.
We pray then for healing
for all the people whose lives
were shattered in the attacks.
We pray for those who defend our freedom.
We pray for wisdom for our national leaders.
We pray for peace, for our country and our world.
I’ll be hanging my Autumn wreath on my front door in honor of today and will remember...
