Pray For Our American Heroes and Our Nation

Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.

Isaiah 58:12 (NIV)

----


TOPICS: Prayer
KEYWORDS: military; pray; prayer; troops


Patriot Day eCard: Never Forget - 9/11 Patriot Day

Who shall separate us
from the love of Christ?
Shall trouble or hardship or persecution
or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?

Romans 8:35 (NIV)

----

Please check out the clip below:
“Why God?” or “Where were you on 9/11?”
(audio with some still pictures)

Some background:

The TV series Blue Bloods , stars Tom Selleck as Frank Reagan, Police Commissioner of New York City.

The second season episode, “ The Job ” (2012) reveals Frank was a first responder to the Twin Towers when they were hit on 9/11.
One of his fellow first responders, Chief John McKenna, recently passed away from an illness contracted at Ground Zero.
And Frank, asked to speak at John’s memorial service, feels survival guilt.

Frank’s father offers wise counsel, drawing strength from their Christian faith, and Frank gives a moving tribute to this hero of 9/11.

----

------------------------------

Heavenly Father –

As another anniversary passes of 9/11, may we never forget … most of all never forget our God of all comfort, in whom we take refuge during the storms of life . We confess that do not understand why evil seems to triumph, but trust that You have a glorious plan for all of Your children, which will all work together for good.

Protect all first responders, who sacrifice and put themselves willingly in harm’s way to serve others and save lives. Shield our heroes who put on the uniform to hold back the forces of evil, home and abroad. Grant wisdom to our leaders and turn their hearts to seek help from the Good Lord in Heaven.

May Your people stand in the gap in prayer to pull down the strongholds of the evil one. May America turn back to the faith of our fathers and mothers who put their trust in You. May we rest in the promise that someday You will wipe away all tears and vanquish evil from Your universe– forever.

In Jesus’ precious Name,
Amen

Keep praying for America

-----------

Please join us in praying for America and our American heroes

Do not gloat over me, my enemy!
Though I have fallen, I will rise.
Though I sit in darkness,
the LORD will be my light.

Micah 7:8 (NIV)

Keep praying for America

Amen to your lovely prayer. I join my voice with yours as we pray to our Heavenly Father for His mercy and compassion, and especially as we approach another anniversary of the horrific massacre on 9/11/2001.

We will never forget.

That is a beautiful prayer and most relevant scripture. Thank you, dear NEWwoman, for posting.

A very special message on the upcoming 12th anniversary, of one of our nations most horrific tragedies.

May He keep and protect our brave heroes - and this great nation brought forth by Him - from evil. May our hearts turn to Him, in complete trust, for direction and comfort.

I pray for those who were lost on 9/11. I pray for their families and friends who suffered an unspeakable loss. I pray that we, as a country, turn our face again to God, humbley ask him for forgiveness, and gratefully accept his love. In Jesus Holy Name, Amen.
