Prayer for September 11

Prayer for September 11: Please pray with me.  God of forgiveness, today we pray for all those in conflict.  Sin is the breaking of relationship – a type of turning away from you and from others.  We ask that you would radically reorient us towards you and others.  Love is the drawing in towards one another – let your love grow within us.  You have forgiven us and showed great grace and mercy to us.  Help us to respond to this gift by also forgiving others with grace and mercy.  We can’t control how others will respond, but that isn’t the point.  You call on us to offer these things regardless of the response.  Give us the courage to do just that.  Amen.
