The Day We Prayed

The day we prayed...

When I woke up this morning, like millions of America and others around the world; I couldn't help but to remember that today is the 6th anniversary of 9/11. That day when a group hateful individuals attacked our freedom, in hopes that they would crush our spirits.

We hurt because of this tragedy... yet we still stand. Looking back at those horrifying pictures, tears flooded my eyes, my heart broke... yet my faith remains unshaken. Why? Because God heard our cries and will not allow evil to have the final say.

I want you to take a notice... in these pictures, people got together and with one united voice and cried out to God. Not the god of hate... not the god of destruction... but to a God of love... who is... and has always has been watching over His people.

In 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NLT) "Then if my people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land."

And that's what we did; once again... people of different origins... different backgrounds, got together with humble hearts... sought God's face... and God is restoring our land. God never back peddles when He makes a promise.

I know that we may never forget that day... and I hope that we never forget how people got together with others for prayer as this nation returned to God...bowed in unity... and sought God's face. Restoration starts here... healing start here.

There are so many people who are God haters today... they are working to destroy your faith. You can see this reality by people actions... by the information they put in the media and even in the world of cyber space. We may not see it, but God is working on our behalf and will continue to do so if we will just remain humble.
Ephesians 5:15-17 (NLT) "So be careful how you live. Don't live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don' t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do."

Ephesians 6:12 (NLT) "For we are not fighting against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places."

I don't like what those cowards did on 9/11... but I do know that they are just being used like pawns by evil forces they can not see. Jesus came and gave His life so that can live... the devil, our enemy as long as we're here; is still working to steal... kill and destroy us. As we continue to seek God's face... God's word is; "the same yesterday... today... and forever" and His word will continue to give us power... love and sound mind.

All I can say is God Bless America.
