On that day, Many gave their lives for this country; unaware....some did it voluntarily to save others that might be in their path.
Many died in the World Trade Center unaware that we were being invited to war. No doubt thinking that some terrible accident had taken place. Much like the rest of us. Some died instantly, Some chose an alternative to the intense heat and smoke. Some died in the Pentagon in much the same way. Some boarded planes that morning departing on business, vacation and a host of other reasons. Others with the express intent to Kill and strike terror in the hearts of others. All died. There were others (Flight 93) that were able to interfere with the plans of wicked people quite possibly saving The WhiteHouse and it's inhabitants. They too gave their lives for this country.
Today, many have and are putting their lives on the line and we give thanks for them...Our sons and daughters; our mothers and fathers brothers and sisters...we give thanks for them.
My sons have have gone to war. They have been overseas and in harms way. Many of you have family and friends that have done the same thing. I thank God for the ones who have gone to preserve our freedom. Without them we would not have the country that we have today. (yes it is changing and not for the best in my opinion; but it is still the greatest country in the world, IMHO) Maybe you are one of the ones that defends us............Thank You!
would you, today and every tomorrow, join me in humility and prayer for our once (still) great nation. the UNITED States of America. seeking the Creators face in repentance asking for healing.
LORD, we your people pause this morning to ask your forgiveness. we are out of your will, we are sinners all of us. forgive us and lead us in the ways of your righteousness. Heal us LORD that we might reflect your Glory upon all the Land. In Jesus Name.....
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
