Prayer for 9/11 families and friends

This song is for all those that have lost there way or are trying to figure things out.  Our Father in Heaven is with us no matter what we go through He is all seeing and will be with you each step you take as you move through each day and night. May God Bless you and keep you!

As we all gave our personal respects to those that perished on 9/11 whether as a victim or as a hero...everyone around the world was affected by this tragic event.  It changed the course of all our lives in so many ways it is on going. But we came together in many ways and still to this day even after 10 years the effects seems to be as if it just happened yesterday.

Watching the memorial service at ground zero, in Pennsylvania, and in Washington was sobering and truly humbling. To see the many lives that has been affected and those that have been able to move on but at the same time still living the memory of that day when so much was lost and some much destruction happened..... each person that lost someone or knew someone lost has been affected in profound way. We all have had death and loss in our lives but most of us have been able to find some sort of closure, I am praying for closure for the victims and healing of their families.

A beautiful memorial of Living water flows and a border of brass frames this waterfall with each one's name cut into it whom perished within the Trade Center.  This is one out of the two buildings that collapsed on September 11th, 2001.

The Pentagon Memorial features 184 cantilevered benches, one for each victim of the 9/11 attack there. Names are etched on the front of each, and the benches are placed in rows according to the victim's birth year.

Marked forever: The name of Army Specialist Chin Sun Pak Wells is etched into the steel border of a bench at the Pentagon Memorial in Virginia. Wells was one of 184 people who died in the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Pentagon.

Dear Heavenly Father, we come to You now in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Father, we thank You that we can abide under the shadow of our Almighty God.  We thank You that You a have given Your angels charge over us to us in all our ways.  We ask that those that have lost or have been injured physically and emotionally by the attack on  September 11th, 200, will be find strength and restoration through You and closure through the Blood of Your Son Jesus Christ.  We ask that You keep them and deliver them from their pain and bring joy and peace back to their lives as they heal.  We also thank You that the guidance of Your righteous and gracious hand and wisdom was upon those that You have anointed with the gift of compassion and gifted in memorializing the memories of the loved ones of the lost.  In His Holy Name we pray ...Amen!!!


  1. Dear IMPACT with Prayer,

    You have chosen the perfect song... "The Prayer" sung by Celine Dion is a wonderful song to dedicate to those who are feeling lost.

    The memorial service was televised live here in Australia. I stayed up especially to watch the broadcast. I saw President Obama get up to speak, and how lovely it was to hear him reading Psalm 46 first up. He didn't quote the Psalm number, but I know those words off by heart.

    Thank you for sharing photographs of the memorial site. It's hard to see all that on TV. It's such a beautiful way to remember those who lost their lives on that day in 2001, which has indeed changed the world forever. I love the water feature! I imagine it's a really nice place for many to go, to just sit and think.

    Well, regardless of where people do go to think about the events that unfolded on that day - I pray for them, that they will find God's love and know His peace. I pray that they are able to find comfort in Jesus, and healing for their internal scars.


    Thinking of you, and I hope your week is going well. With love and care from Kerrie. xOx
