Remember ~ Pray ~ Love



Thoughts and Prayers
to all affected around the world by such a
horrific event and loss of life!

Dear Heavenly Father,


Today is a difficult day. The memories are painful and some of the wounds I fear may never heal. Yet I pray you will help me to go on living for truth, firm in my hope of your salvation. May I live for you, Lord, and by doing so, be an example to my friends and family. I pray, just like Jesus, I may learn obedience through these things that I have suffered. Help me not to question why, yet even if I do, give me courage to continue to trust you. Help me take the comfort and strength you've poured into my life and use it to comfort and strengthen others who need hope.

I pray I might become a better person and help make the world a better place because of this terrible event. Thank you for the heroes that gave so sacrificially on September 11. Help me to remember their courage and learn from them. I want my life to be worthy of you Lord, so make of it what you desire, and use me to fulfill your purposes. May the evil of that day cause me and my family to work harder to do good on this Earth and to bring your light into the dark places. Help me to never stop believing in you and living my life for you.

Lord, heal all those who were crushed and broken on that day. May they come to experience your presence and know your peace.

Amen.

  1. Thank You for this beautiful post and Prayer!!
    So many mixed emotions that day...my daughter's first day at pre-school, wondering if my husband who had retired from the AirForce just months earlier would be recalled, hoping beyond hope that this really was not happening!
    I feel all that anxiety again but we can never forget the lost of lives and shattered dreams of so many.

    Thanks for such a beautiful reminder.

  2. I'm not religious as such but that prayer is beautiful and I'm always so moved on this day for the wonderful American & Canadian people. I wasn't effected directly and neither was anyone close to me but I think it was an event that so many people will never forget. So much courage and so many sacrifices by so many people. Sending love xxxx
