A Prayer for the Anniversary of 9/11:(Rev. Jeremy Pridgeon, General Board of Discipleship)

O God, our hope and refuge,
in our distress we come quickly to you.
Shock and horror of that tragic day have subsided, replaced now with an emptiness,
a longing for an innocence lost.

We come remembering those who lost their lives in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania.

We are mindful of the sacrifice of public servants who demonstrated the greatest love of all by laying down their lives for friends.

We commit their souls to your eternal care and celebrate their gifts to a fallen humanity. We come remembering and we come in hope, not in ourselves, but in you. As foundations we once thought secure have been shaken, we are reminded of the illusion of security.

 

In commemorating this tragedy, we give you thanks for your presence in our time of need and we seek to worship you in Spirit and in truth, our guide and our guardian. Amen.
