Remembering 9/11 with a Prayer

by cnewman

The students, faculty, administration and staff of Mount Mercy Academy say prayers today in remembrance of September 11, 2001.Here is one prayer we would like to share:

Jesus, beloved savior,
In remembering the terrible events of 9/11,
we recognize our great need for your guidance and protection.
We have painfully learned that our country is vulnerable
and that violence can disrupt both individuals and nations.

We pray then for healing for all the people
whose lives were shattered in the attacks.
We pray for those who defend our freedom.
We pray for wisdom for our national leaders.
We pray for peace for our country and our world.
Jesus, beloved savior, As we remember, hold us in your loving hands.

"Mercy is more than just a school. Mercy is my second home and a shoulder to lean on. Mount Mercy has given me the confidence and resources to pursue my passions and make the world a more inclusive place, propelling me to take strides into male-dominated fields. Mercy blessed me with an environment to grow intellectually and in the community, giving me the foundation to make a tangible impact while making lifelong friendships."
