Lest we forget…

Remember 9/11 Prayer

The White House Commission
on the
National Moment of Remembrance

Compiled by a Navy Chaplain



Almighty God, the past year will be indelibly inscribed in our memories.

We looked with horror on the terrorist attacks of last September 11th.
But we looked with honor on acts of courage by ordinary people
who sacrificed themselves to prevent further death and destruction.

We shed our tears in a common bond of grief for those we loved and lost.
We journeyed through a dark valley, but your light has led us to a place of hope.
You have turned our grief into determination.
We are resolved to do what is good, and right, and just.

Help us to remember what it means to be Americans—
a people endowed with abundant blessings.
Help us to cherish the freedoms we enjoy and inspire us to stand
with courage, united as one Nation in the midst of any adversity.

Lord, hear this prayer for our Nation. Amen

Stay safe and be happy!!

  3. Just like the day President Kennedy was shot, September 11 is burned into my memory. I will never forget where I was when I saw the television displaying those scenes of horror. I hope I will never be witness to anything like that again. Let there be peace on earth....and let it begin with me.

  7. When I visited the Memorial ground zero, it was quite a haunting experience and seeing all the names etched round the waterfalls was a very sobering thought.
