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.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
