As we start our day today at JoyRich, on this September 11th 2015
we begin it with a moment of silence and a prayer.
Almighty God, may this day be indelibly inscribed in our memories.
We looked with horror on the terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001.
But we looked with honor on acts of courage by ordinary people
who sacrificed themselves to prevent further death and destruction.
We shed our tears in a common bond of grief for those we loved and lost.
We journeyed through a dark valley, but your light has led us to a place of hope.
You have turned our grief into determination.
We are resolved to do what is good, right, and just.
Help us to remember what it means to be Americans—
a people endowed with abundant blessings.
Help us to cherish the freedoms we enjoy and inspire us to stand
with courage, united as one Nation under God in the midst of this and ANY adversity.
Lord, hear this prayer for our Nation. Amen.
To all who have suffered and still are…
You are not alone.
To all who lost their lives from the September 11th tragedy.
We honor your memory and thank you for your sacrifice!
