A Prayer for Today

Father God,

On this day, so many of us will remember a day 12 years ago. We’ll remember where we were, what we saw, and who we lost. We’ll remember the images, the fear, and the wars that have occurred since then. Help us to remember that even when there was darkness surrounding us, you were there. Help us to remember that you are still with us today. As well, Father, guide us as a people as we reflect on the situation in Syria. We are concerned about the violence there, but are often lost for a response that echoes your peace. Guide our leaders and world to make the right choices. Bring your peace to Syria, the Middle East, and throughout your world, and may we be your agents of peace today and always. In Christ’s name, Amen!
