O Lord, you who are the God of the living and the dead, we remember this day those who died on 9-11: we thank you for all who sacrificed their lives in the service of others and we pray that you would heal all lingering traumatic memories, that you would mend all relations that remain broken still, between neighbors and nations, and that you would kindle in us the true love of justice and peace, so that we might work toward a day on which nation shall not lift up sword against nation. We pray this in the name of our Strong Deliverer. Amen.
