Lift up our country and keep us safe.
Give us grace to remember 9/11 without hate.
Recall and bless each soul that was lost and honor the valiant who defended our nation.
Continue to lead us down a path of healing and hope.
Help us discover ways to live in good will and transcend the past.
Grant us strength to deal with the future.
Protect our citizens from violent inclinations,
yet help us maintain our alertness and preparedness.
Create peace in our hearts, minds, and actions.
Peace, a force that reverberates in others, until it spreads to every corner of the earth.
