9 11 – we will never forget.

Today, we remember the events that unfolded 20 years ago, on September 11, 2001.

We remember the bravery on display as firefighters rushed in to help those in distress.

We remember watching in horror as so many individuals fell or leaped to their deaths as they faced a horrible decision to stay inside this burning building or fall to their deaths. 

We watched in disbelief as so many of our citizens lost their lives that day. 

We looked on in utter pain and anguish as so many people staggered out of those buildings with life-changing injuries. 

We watched in horror as one at a time, one tower collapsed. Then the other collapsed from the intense heat of jet engine fuel.

We cried out to God as we wondered why this was happening. 

We prayed in unison as we asked God to help all those innocent people. 

Today, we remember, but perhaps the question we should ask is how can we ever forget? 

This event was meant to destroy America, but it had the opposite effect.

In the days following this horrific event, our country came together in unity and love. 

We came together in love for one another and for our beloved America. 

How ironic that today as we reflect, there are forces at work trying to tear America and Its citizens apart again. 

Today, there are those using racism and hate to divide our country and all our countrymen. 

We did not let our house divide then, and we cannot let it divide now. 

God’s word tells us that a house divided on itself, cannot stand (Mark 3:25)

https://biblehub.com/mark/3-25.htm

We must refuse all those pushing division, hate, anger, and racism on us. 

We must tell them to flat out that we will not accept their lies and dishonesty.

Today, let us embrace that camaraderie that we held back on September 11, 2001. Today, let us reignite that love and passion for America. 

Most of all, let us return to God and reignite a fire and love for Him again.

He is and will always be the foundation of America. 

America was built on Him and His strong foundation of truth, justice, love, honor, and bravery.

Yes, America is not perfect, but we search to be and do better tomorrow and all the tomorrows that follow with God’s grace. 

With God leading the way, America will never fail. She may falter, but America will rise again to shine brighter than ever. 

America will lead the way again. 

We may have fallen to one knee, but the sleeping giant that is America will rise again to be more formidable than ever. 

America, don’t give up on God. Keep praying, keep fasting, keep declaring God’s victory over this evil that is trying to overtake America. 

God bless America!

We will never forget!

We will never forget how we watched as heroes raced to help perfect strangers, co-workers, each other, and friends.

We will never forget the nearly 3,000 who lost their lives in this horrendous attack.
We will never forget exactly where we were and what we were doing as we watched these events unfold.
Most of all, we will never forget and stop praying for the families, friends, and loved ones who were impacted by this day.

God, hear our prayers for all those who are suffering.

Father, hear our prayers rise to You. God, listen to our words as we cry out to help.
God, this nation is in turmoil & disarray. God, there is too much tension, disagreement, arguing, name-calling, hate & anger gripping this country.

God, this nation has been gripped by destruction & suffering. These events are our cue to draw CLOSER to You via our prayers!
It’s time to seek You first above ALL other things. God, let us pull You closer than ever before.

God, we seek Your face for the restoration of our glorious nation.
We decree & declare all these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.

God, why do men seek evil & destruction?

God, why do men/women plan/plot evil & destruction against the innocent?

God, why do they find delight in the pain, suffering & anguish that they cause?

Father, our hearts are heavy w/sorrow, anguish & pain from what has taken place in Las Vegas. Lord, please help us!

God, this pain is too much for us to bear. Take it from us Father.

God, our hearts are still reeling from the recent catastrophic weather events of late.

Jesus, this pain is too much to endure! Father, You never intended for us to carry the burden of so much pain & suffering.

Our hearts have been berated over & over again with recent human-made turmoil, horrific weather events, earthquakes & fires.

We ask ourselves how this type of evil is allowed to happen.

Father, we know that some men reject the light which is our Savior & seek darkness. When this happens, sin is allowed to fester & grow.

God, create in each of us a clean heart. Father, remove everything in our hearts/lives that is displeasing to You.

God, forgive each of us for our sins. God, cleanse us w/the precious blood of our Savior, Jesus.
God, we receive Jesus as our Savior.

God, let us seek Your protection every day. God, remind us that You have given us Your armor( Eph. 6:13-16 ) to apply daily to our loved ones & to ourselves.

Father, let us use prayer of protection via Your hedge of protection, our angels that encamp around us & by applying the blood of Jesus.

In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Let us pray for those who are suffering.

prayer-in-wood-9.16.17WP

Holy Spirit, convict all those who put lies, deception, dishonesty & political agendas above the truth.
God, let the truth be known of the relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
God, hear us as we call out for mercy for all the suffering people affected by storms, floods, hurricanes, fires & earthquakes.
God, quickly restore their broken lives. God, when we go through the deepest waters, we are not alone. Thank You, God, that You are always with us!
Your word says that You will never leave us or forsake us.
In Jesus’ name, we pray & agree.  Amen.

Let us continue to pray together for this approaching storm, Irma, and for the storm that is churning in the Atlantic Ocean, Jose. God, please protect us! God, we are calling out to You for Your mercy. God, this country that You blessed us with is under attack by storms, floods, hurricanes, & fires. God, her are cries for help and do not turn Your face from us. God, shift these storms trajectories. God, lessen their power in the name of Jesus. Jesus, You spoke the winds and the waves the told them to be calm.  With Your mere words, You calmed the storm.  Savior, the same power that lives in You resides in us.  God, we tell Irma, in the name of Jesus, to desist. We tell her to be calm. We command her to shift paths. Jose, in the name of Jesus, we command you to turn and return to the sea.  We command you, Jose, to decrease in your intensity.

We lift up all those affected by the floods. We lift up all the islands that have been decimated by Hurricane Irma. We ask for supernatural rebuilding & restoration.
