Daily Prayers for September 11


Daily Prayers for September 11
On this day in 1973, the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende was overthrown in Chile by a CIA-backed coup. On the same day in 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the United States Pentagon killed twenty-eight hundred -people.

O Lord, let my soul rise up to meet you

as the day rises to meet the sun.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Come, let us bow down and bend the knee : let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.

Song “Waters of Babylon”

In God the Lord, whose word I praise : in God I trust and will not be afraid.

Psalm 56:3 – 7

Whenever I am afraid : I will put my trust in you.

In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust and will not be afraid : for what can flesh do to me?

All day long they damage my cause : their only thought is to do me evil.

They band together; they lie in wait : they spy upon my footsteps; because they seek my life.

Shall they escape despite their wickedness? : O God, in your anger, cast down the -peoples.

In God the Lord, whose word I praise : in God I trust and will not be afraid.

Hosea 2:14 – 23 Matthew 6:25 – 34

In God the Lord, whose word I praise : in God I trust and will not be afraid.

Theophilus of Antioch, a second-century bishop, wrote, “Say to those that hate and curse you, ‘You are our brothers!’ ”

Prayers for Others

Our Father

You who prayed from the cross for your Father to forgive those who were killing you, grant us the courage to forgive those who harm us in our families, in our communities, and in our world. Help us recognize our own need to seek the forgiveness of others. Amen.

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you : wherever he may send you;

may he guide you through the wilderness : protect you through the storm;

may he bring you home rejoicing : at the wonders he has shown you;

may he bring you home rejoicing : once again into our doors.
