God, we remember that day seventeen years ago as if it just happened.
We remember the moment we first heard the news.
We remember the images blazing across our TV screen and hearts.
We remember those we lost. We remember the heroes.
Today, we remember all of this too:
You are in control no matter what happens.
Coming together makes us better.
Evil never wins in the end.
From what looks like utter destruction, hope can rise again.
So we pause. We pray. We believe.
We look to the past to honor what’s come before.
We live now with a strength we didn’t know we had until we needed it.
We face the future with faith that You are still good.
Yes, God, we remember.
And may we never forget.
We believe that by sharing our stories with each other, God can bring healing, peace, joy, and deeper connections in our friendships. It is in this spirit that we invite you to share your story of the way 9/11 impacted your life. Where you were when you heard the news, if you lost a loved one, and/or the ways in which your heart was changed by these events? You are invited to leave your story in the comments today and to lift up other sisters in prayer.
We face the future with faith that You are still good. Yes, God, we remember. And may we never forget. Click To Tweet
