SEPTEMBER 11 MEMORIAL

From Just 4 Kids Magazine

Dear Friends,

Please join with us to pray for healing to occur in New York City and in our nation. We know that when people from around the world join together and pray for a particular area, God can anoint those prayers to accomplish some amazing things. Miraculous things happen when people pray.

In 1991, Killeen, Texas suffered the worst mass murder in the history of our country. Fear, pain and dismay consumed the heart of the community. As the one-year anniversary date drew near, a news report stated that the community, San Ysidio, Ca., where the McDonald’s shootings occurred, had never healed from the horrific occurrence.

That was when we decided to pull a nation together to pray for healing in the community of Killeen, Texas. Churches around the world, Christian businesses and individuals prayed for healing in Killeen, Texas. Through the power of prayer, God did some amazing things in Killeen in 1992, and we know God will do some wonderful things in New York City in 2002.

Please join us in praying:

Dear Holy Father,

Thank you for Your mercy and grace, and thank You for Your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Please allow our prayer to be incense before You. We love You Lord.

Father, we lift our leaders up to You and ask You to bless them with Your wisdom so they can make good decisions that affect our country.

Dear Lord, we ask for Your healing to occur in New York City on the anniversary date of the September 11, 2001 attack.

Father, we ask Your blessings over the people of New York City, and we ask for Your healing to occur on this anniversary date, September 11, 2002. We know You are our healer, and through You all things are possible.

Please bless New York City and our nation with Your healing. We surround the city and our leaders with holy linking angels to keep all attacks of the enemy away. We love You Lord.

In Jesus name we pray,

Thanks for joining us in prayer – May God bless and protect you.

This flag and poem have been kept alive and moving since 9/11/2001. In memory of all those who perished this morning; the passengers and the pilots on the United Air and AA flights, the workers in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and all the innocent bystanders. Our prayers go out to the friends and families of the deceased.

IF I KNEW

If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.

Send this to at least 10 people to show your support.
