Perhaps this attack on America was allowed by God as a wake up call to all of us. We need to pray for our country and the world. We need to pray for those that didn't have a chance to prepare before their Judgment. We need to pray for those helpers who are risking their lives in New York. We need to pray for our leaders. We need to pray for the hijackers and we need to forgive them.
"Dear Father Almighty,
As we mourn for all the souls who died in the
attack, many of whom
had no prayer or thought of You on their hearts, we
ask You to extend the full portion of Your Mercy on their souls. We also beg
of you to send the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, into the lives of their
surviving relatives and friends. You, Father, and You alone, have the power
to bring good out of evil.
We humbly implore you to guide the hands, feet,
and minds of all rescue
workers, police, fire workers and all the military men and women
who are responding to this crisis.
Protect them. Enlighten them. Help them save lives.
We ask, too, Almighty One, that You extend a blanket
of divine protection on
the United States. Guide our leaders, especially
President Bush, and all sovereign nations who are our friends, and place
them under the special mantle of the Immaculate Conception, Our Lady, who is
the patroness of our country.
We ask all of this in the Holy Name that is Above
All Other Names in Power
and Glory and Love and Mercy; in the name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, our
brother, and Our Savior.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the
day of battle. Be our
protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke
him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the
power of God, cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about
the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas,
pray for us.
Saint Katharine Drexel and Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us.
Saint Thomas More, Patron of Politicians, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, Patron Saint of Canada, pray for us.
Immaculate Mary, Patroness of the United States, pray for us.
Jesus Christ, King of Kings, we adore you!"
