Remembering September 11

Today we remember the fourth anniversary of the terrorists' attacks on the United States. In New York City, Washington, and Pennsylvania, nearly 3,000 people were killed by Muslim extremists. Lord, we pray for the souls of those who died in Your grace that day. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. We also pray for the families of all those who died or suffered loss as a result of those attacks. We will never understand why this happened, and by all means it does not make sense. It is hard for us to understand how you allow things to happen and why, so please help us cast all of our cares on You, God, and help us to rely solely on the fact that You are in control. We pray that You will bring our nation back to You, God. Remind us that tall towers and wealth are not what we are to focus on, but it is You, Jesus, to whom we should give the glory. We pray this in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
