September 11 Collect
O God who created all peoples of the earth, knows them all by name, and loves them infinitely: Comfort all who have lost loved ones, especially on this day; forgive those who seek division; lead us to reconciliation with all of our neighbors; and give rest to the departed, that one day we might all join in your heavily Kin-dom, a city of eternal peace, through Christ the Great Reconciler who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
