Lord Jesus Christ, on this 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks, we ask Your continued blessing on our nation. Thank you for protecting us from another deadly attack in the years since that day, and continue to watch over us with Your holy angels and Your almighty power. Thank You for soldiers, police, and others who risk their lives to defend our lives and freedom. Comfort the families of those who died in the attacks with the good news of Your imperishable resurrection from the dead. We ask You to restrain the wicked plans of evil men and bring to nothing their deadly hatred. Use this day as an occasion for repentance and searching of heart, so that more may realize the eternal consequences of sin and turn to You. Hear us for Your name’s sake, dear Jesus. Amen.
