I bet when the planes struck the twin towers many people that had never prayed before did. I bet many people closed their eyes and muttered off words to someone they didn’t believe in. I know a crazy amount prayers happened that morning on september 11th. Because people needed hope and something to believe in, and maybe praying was the only thing they could do in that moment.
The senior religion editor for the huffington post, Paul Brandeis Raushenbush, posted about a collection of original prayers for use on 9/11. In hopes that they would provide peace and comfort to those who needed it. Prayer is powerful, and that is seen in the pictures and prayers posted in this article.
