Prayer for 10th Anniversary of 9/11
This morning at 6:58 – 10 years to the date and time of the 9/11 attack we gathered at the Glendale Fire Department for a commemorative service. The names of the fallen fire-fighters were remembered with a solemn reading. I was asked to offer the prayer. Please join me with yours.
May we never forget the tragedy of that day – may the memory of all those lives-lost keep us vigilant in our resolve to seek peace and work for justice. Likewise, may we be inspired by the bravery of those who walked into tragedy while most were fleeing. May we celebrate the courage of those who stood and stand today helping others, as a testament to the power of love.
As we leave today, strengthen us as Americans to look beyond our prejudices and see YOUR presence in all the people we confront. Fill us – each of us – with faith, hope and love – to have faith in a brighter tomorrow, to hope for the goodness in everyone, and to do everything with love in our hearts.
Beautifully said. God bless us all
Beautiful!! Thank you Father Vazken..my heart and mind join you in this prayer. Amen
