Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani has joined the chorus of leaders calling for prayer and clergy to have a role in the 9/11 10th anniversary memorial service, saying: "If I were the mayor, . . . I'd have a religious presence there. . . . It could be done very simply by just having a priest, a rabbi, a minister and an imam together and say a little prayer at the beginning."

Giuliani recently explained in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, "Hundreds and thousands of families turned to God more than they had in the past [in the aftermath of 9/11].” That is exactly why we have been urging Mayor Bloomberg to reconsider his decision banning prayer and religious leaders from the 9/11 ceremony. Prayer united us as a nation following the terrorist attacks of 9/11, and it can unite us again today.

As Mayor Giuliani correctly noted, “[R]eligion . . . play[ed] a major role in the healing of the city." It played a mayor role in healing the nation, and the 9/11 anniversary is the perfect time to recognize the power of prayer. Prayer is an appropriate way to commemorate this solemn occasion, and that is why we are representing thousands of American’s in calling for prayer to be permitted at the 9/11 ceremony.
