Length of Days - Search for Freedom

September 9, 2008

As we approach 911, let us remember we are all in a war, a war for our Christian beliefs, a war to maintain the values our country was founded on, a war for our very lives and safety. Let us pray this prayer today - on 9/09, and again on 9/10, 9/11, 9/12 and for many days to come:

“Oh most merciful God, whose hand stretches out and keeps us all, either safely in this world or in the next, we praise your precious, Holy name. May your kingdom come to dwell in our lives so that your will may be done there. We pray for the lives of those lost on 911 and strength for their families and loved ones through your presence. We pray for your love to drive out all anger from our lives so that only your grace and peace remain. You are God. Justice and consequences belong to you. We can let go of all hate, frustration and anger. We pray also for discernment that we might see evil where it exists, call it by name, and rely on you to destroy it. We ask your forgiveness where we have not spoken up and spoken out, and pray for courage to do so in the future. We pray that the events of 911 never happen again and that we will always be vigilant for signs that could detect the developing circumstances before they would ever happen. Deliver us from our own sin and the evil that is around us. We give you all the praise and glory. In the name of, and by the power of, your precious son’s name, Jesus our Savior, we pray. And now, we will live this day, secure in the knowledge that you have heard our prayer. Amen”
