A Prayer in Time of Terrorism

I was sent this e-mail September 11, 2001

Grant, O God, that in this time of national testing, thy people may know
thy presence and obey thy Will: that with integrity and courage we may
accomplish all that which thou would have us to do, and to endure that
which thou would ask us to bear;

Pour out, O merciful Lord, thy aid and comfort to all who those who at
this time are visited with tragedy and bereavement; and prosper with
thy continual blessing all those those who administer the healing gifts
to the injured and those who labor to devise protection against
fanatical terrorist attacks.

Grant, O Lord, the execution of righteous judgment against those
responsible for this evil, that justice might be done in this world and
in the life to come..

Finally, O Lord, we pray that thou would convert and turn the hearts of
our enemies, who by the hardening of their hearts, know not what evil
they do.

This we ask through Him who both healed and hallowed suffering, thy Son
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Rev James Payne, Houston, TX
