A Collect For September 11
God of mercy, justice, and righteousness, we pray today for the victims of the attacks of September 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. Through your grace give us the means to discern 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 that signify our nation at its best, through Jesus Christ our LORD, Amen.
