Remembering 9-11 The Day That Changed America Robert and Theresa Phillips
Prayer for America Continues.
On this day 19 years ago Our country faced an attack that was unchangeable.
Terrorists attacked our nation killing 3000 people.
And, to this very day some still perishing from the rescue attempts.
Flags flew on almost every home in 48 hours.
On that day clergy took to the altars and open their houses of worship as people streamed in for safety and guidance. Finding peace in God.
Military personal already in the air due to an exercise at the time. (Chaplain Robert Phillips was there). Other military ready in minutes.
The nation was at a standstill. Watching.. Waiting .. Praying.
Foreign heads of government were NOT allowed in our airspace.
Smoke raged from The Twin Towers. The Pentagon was ablaze, and a field of dreams was destroyed by heroics of the day saving countless lives… Patriots Day emerged.
AMERICANS Yes, 19 years ago…
Yet today we stand at the crossroads of tyranny once again.
And, this time the flags disappear as fear has taken hold of a nation.
The terror from within has caused many a weakened soul.
GOD touch America.
And here today we offer the prayers of Thanksgiving and Tributes to the lost and the perishing of 9-11. Under watchful eyes of mankind's opinions.
Not forgetting the eyes of GOD watch to and fro.
On that day our first responders bravely entered collapsing building looking or survivors.
Our military was in the sky circling for days.
Teams of firemen and police and veterans from across the nation streamed in to do something anything to assist in war.
True Heroic AMERICANS.
The military the volunteers and the clergy on their knees working in solidarity for one cause
I remember the sky was clear as this pastor entered into the church at 9 am… Not a cloud in the sky not a bird. The soundlessness was completely deafening sobering and thoughts of America must be saved.
In days our National Anthem was being played from The White House to Buckingham Palace. Allies stood with us. Enemies laughed at us.
We prevailed! We Are AMERICANS!
Today upon reflection we see cloudy skies a dark atmosphere the smell of fallen leaves emanating from the earth after the rains.
Questioning GOD is this a sign of the times?
On that day America saw GOD's hand and the people called upon the Lord God Almighty.
Today we cry out to God in our homes with houses of worship closed.
Enemies from within removing flags of nation. Ceremonies at a minimal.
But, in spite of it all We say THANK YOU to every Veteran and First Responder.
Why? Because we ARE AMERICANS! AND WE NEVER WILL FORGET!
Every city . Every person that acknowledges this day. And, for the Hand of GOD unseen yet evident in our land. WE THANK YOU!
We give thanks for all who have served and continue to serve.
We give thanks for those who stand to ready when called upon.
These are AMERICANS!
Almighty God we ask you to guide the hearts and hands and minds of our nation’s leaders from the top down.
We ask for your unrelenting shelter in the midst of these storms.
We as for your Presence to be among us strong and mighty forever.
We ask for hearts to be turned back to the Love of God and Country and Family!
We diligently say We ARE ONE WE ARE AMERICANS.
O Lord GOD We thank you. For we are the land of the Free and The Home of the Brave.
May You O GOD Bless America!
