9-11God of justice and righteousness, Lord of peace and reconciliation, we pray today for the victims of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the heroic men and women who rushed to save them, their families, and all who were injured in spirit that day, in our nation and the world. Enable us to learn the right lessons from these and all acts of savagery and darkness in the broken world which you love without reservation or exception. Strengthen our resolve to uphold the principles of freedom and justice that signify our nation at its best. Through Jesus Christ our LORD, Amen.
