O Beautiful For Spacious Skies

"I pray that the Lord will bless you and protect you, and
that He will show you mercy and kindness. May the Lord
be good to you and give you peace." -Numbers 6:24-26

You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news on September 11, 2001. Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say "Good-Bye." I held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the peace to say, "Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK...I am ready to go." I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn't coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me for help. "I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!" I said. "Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now."

I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls. I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He
heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the
believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them.

I was in Texas, Kansas, London. I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name - though not all know Me. Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath. Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the smoke and flames; "Come to Me... this way... take
my hand." Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me. But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you have reached for Me?

September 11, 2001 was not the end of the journey for you. But someday your journey will end. And I will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are "ready to go." I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.


During the next 60 seconds, stop whatever you are doing, and take this opportunity. (Literally it is only 1 minute.) All you have to do is the following: You simply say an "Our Father" for the person
that sent you this message:

Our Father who are in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily
bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For
thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

Next, you send this message to everyone you know. In a while, more people will have prayed for you and you would have obtained a lot of people praying for others. Next, stop and think and appreciate God's power in your life, for doing what you know is pleasing to him. If you are not ashamed to do this, follow the instructions.

Jesus said, "If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you before My Father" If you are not ashamed, send this message... only if you believe.
"Yes, I love my God. He is my fountain of Life and My Savior. He keeps me going day and night. Without Him, I am no one. But with Him, I can do
everything. Christ is my strength."

Gentlemen may cry, peace, peace-but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

That religion, or the duty which we owe to our Creator, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of the conscience; and it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity towards each other.

Patrick Henry

We All Weep r14-bt6.gif (2148 bytes)

We may ask each other how God would allow this to happen. I can't give you the answer, but I can tell you this. God loves each and every one of us and He feels our sorrow, He knows our pain and He weeps also. He is there for us, to help us unite together finding peace, love and comfort, not only in His presence, but in the arms of our fellow Americans and other nations all over the world as we rally together and unite in a way that we haven't united in a long time.

Please lift our nation up in prayer. Pray for our president and all our Military Leaders. Pray for the families who have lost a friend or loved one and for those who are still looking. Pray for the emergency workers, fire department, police, military, doctors and nurses.

With God as our cornerstone, we
will make it through this terrible time.

God Bless the victims. God Bless the heroes.
God Bless the families. God Bless the children.
