NEVER FORGET


As we enter this 10th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on American soil, we are reminded to pause from our busy lives, put the brakes on politics for a day (perhaps even sports, I dare say), and join with the rest of America in offering prayers for the souls of those 2,976 victims, along with honoring their family members, who continue to grieve for their lost ones. God Bless them all...we will NEVER FORGET.

ALMIGHTY God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favour and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honourable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogancy, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
