This day is one of deep importance for all Americans. It is a time to remember the lives lost and to honor the brave souls who did their best to save any who could be saved. I’d like to take a moment to say a small prayer of both thanks and also hope that such a tragic moment in American history might never be repeated.
Dear heavenly father,
Thank you for all the grace you’ve rained down on this country and thank you for keeping us from such a tragedy in the years since. Please put your hand upon all the leaders of this nation and bless those who might wish to do good to do it. Keep us from harm and let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
