Prayers for the observance of 9/11
For our enemies
Most merciful and loving Father, which hatest not any of the things which thou has made, but sufferest them and bearest with men’s misdoings, winking at them to provoke them to repentance: We beseech thee most humbly, even with our hearts, to pour out upon our enemies with bountiful hands whatsoever things thou knowest may do them good, and chiefly a sound and uncorrupt mind, wherethrough they may know thee and seek thee in true charity and with their whole heart, and love us, thy children for thy sake. Destroy them not, O Father, for their hatred towards us, but save them at our entreatance for them. Amen.
From the Elizabethan Prayer Book 1559
For those who have given their lives in the service of our country
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, in whose hands are the living and the dead: We give you thanks for all your servants who have laid down their lives in the service of our country. Grant to them your mercy and the light of your presence; and give us such a lively sense of your righteous will, that the work which you began in them may be perfected; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
From the Book of Common Prayer 1979
