Sept. 11th… Pause and pray

On this day that will remain marked by the events of 2001, I suggest it would be wise to pause and remember, but more importantly to pray.

Pray for those thousands who lost loved ones that day.

Pray for justice in this world racked with its lack.

Pray for compassion for those who are oppressed in war torn countries and refugee camps.

Pray for the many thousands of families of those lost or maimed and those left scarred in mind or body in battles that followed 9-11. 

Pray for those whose hearts are now scarred by fear of those different from themselves because of these attacks.

Pray for compassion in your own heart.
