Please be with those family members and friends of the victims and of the fallen heroes who put their lives on the line ten years ago, Lord. Give them the strength they need to go on and help them to celebrate today instead of mourn. Be with that little boy and that little girl who are missing a parent today because their lives were taken on 9/11. Be with those mothers and fathers who are feeling alone because they lost a child on this day a decade ago or during the war that preceded the terrorist attacks.
And also be with those soldiers who are still today putting their lives on the line to serve and protect our country, Lord You know we need protection and guidance. Keep Your eye on them and continue to provide them with the courage and strength they need to do what they do every day.
Lastly, be with our President. He is our chosen leader and in that position, he most of all needs your guidance, Lord. Please bless him with good decision making and courage and strength and love and also be with his wife and daughters.
Thank you so much for giving us a second chance at life each day that we wake up. Help us all to be more appreciative of what we have and stop worrying about the things we don’t have. Help us all to stop taking time and people for granted. Help us to be heroes in our own worlds. Amen.
