Prayer for 9-11

Lord God Almighty,

We come before you with memories of violence, destruction, death, and the ever-present reminders that our country was forever changed by evil acts on September eleventh.

We remember the horror of 9/11/2001.

We remember the horror of 9/11/2012.

We come before you with past scars and with future fears.

Lord, we ask for a strong hedge of protection over our citizens, over our country, and over our embassies.

We ask that you would destroy any plots and plans against us.

Lord, we acknowledge that many in our country have sought to remove you from our country. We pray that their eyes would be opened and their hearts would become tender toward you.

We are sorrowful at the direction our country is heading. 

We repent that we, as Christians, have not raised a louder voice of dedication to you.

Your Word says that "If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

Lord, today, I seek to humble myself.

Lord, today I am praying and seeking your face.

Lord, today I am seriously looking at my life in order to turn from wicked ways.  I want to be right with you. I want to follow you more closely. I want to treat you in the honored way that you deserve to be treated. 

Forgive me -  and forgive my country -  of our wicked ways.

Lord, please protect us on this 9/11. Please thwart any plans to cause us harm. Please cover us with a supernatural shield.

We pray these things in the holy name of Jesus Christ,
