This prayer was written by Reverend Lyndon Harris, who directed relief efforts at St. Paul's Chapel at Ground Zero in New York after 9/11
"O God, our times are in your hand. In the midst of uncertainty lead us by your never-failing grace as we seek to be agents of healing and hope. Walk with us through difficult times; watch over us in danger; and give to us a spirit of love and compassion for those who suffer and mourn. And finally remind us that you have promised never to leave us, so that even in the valley of the shadow of death your love may be felt, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
