This weekend, we observed the 20th anniversary of a world-changing event. Let us pray.
While the painful memories of this day are forever on our hearts, we cling to the hope that sprang from the ashes.
We pray for those who are still touched by loss or injury.
Help us to never forget those who lost or gave their lives, as they represent the best of humanity.
In our mourning, may we honor those sacrifices by being loving neighbors to all, and working toward the lasting peace through Jesus Christ.
