In memory of those who perished senselessly. You will never be forgotten.
One cannot even begin to explain the feelings that tear at the heart when witnessing such senseless violence as seen on the television, on September 11. And to experience it first hand is something far beyond comprehension. Who can possibly imagine what those moments must have been like for those innocent victims? We are sickened and angry that life can be so meaningless to those who were behind these acts.
Not only did they attack the United States, but all free people's of the world. As nation's mourn the losses, please light a candle in the memory of those who fell victim on this day.
~Star Spangled Banner~
O say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
Francis Scott Key
Our Father who art in Heaven, we lift up our voices in prayer. The forces of darkness walk the face of this earth, and we ask that you shelter us in your loving embrace.
A great tragedy has fallen upon innocent men, women, and children. Lives were forever changed, and hearts broken. But, Father we know that your spirit fills us with hope and courage, and united we stand.
We lift up the families who have suffered great loss on this day. Their lives have been shattered, and we pray that a healing can begin.
There is not a single human being in this country that has not been touched in some way by these horrible events, not one. We stand in support of one another, and of this nation. And we ask Father, for your guidance in the days to come.
Buildings may shake and fall, but our spirits stand on solid rock. We place ourselves in Your hands.
In Jesus' name.....Amen.
The Lord is my shepard, I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I wil fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of ine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Thank you for this gift.
