As September 11th turns to September 12th, I wanted to offer a quick prayer before turning in tonight:
May God be with the families and loved ones of those that perished on that horrible day eight years ago. May He grant them mercy in their pain and sorrow and let it lessen as time goes by so that the good memories are what most remains.
May God protect and give comfort to those Americans in the armed forces that have put themselves in harm's way to protect our great nation in the hope of ensuring that terrorists will never again murder those on American soil or innocents anywhere on God's earth.
And May God protect those that speak up for what is right and just in defense of our country, our God-given freedoms, and human life throughout the world so that these most precious gifts will never be taken from us by any enemy that would be inclined to do so.
In Christ's Holy name, I pray!
