Hey God it’s me, my heart is a little heavy and I just wanted to talk. Father as 9/11 rolls around, it always seems to get me emotional.
When I think of that day, on that ship, turning around and heading back in I was devastated, we were devastated, the country was devastated. Just weeks before I had lost a nephew, we had already been in the Persian Gulf and I was on my way home. Soon my devastation turned to anger, as all Americans probably experienced,….. revenge.
I try not to dwell on the past, I pray and I now use my past as a testimony to You. As as I sit here this evening, I have an overwhelming need to talk to You. Our world full of turmoil, strife and hate. Country against country, culture against culture, race again race and even religion against religion. Somehow, we’ve gotten lost along the way. Father, walking with You is not easy, You said it wouldn’t be. Commitment is a 24/7 job, You said it would be, there are no part time positions available in Heaven, I get it. You said we would be persecuted and we are. You said the Devil is relentless, and he is.
Lord arm us with Your word, grace us with the Holy Spirit, give us presence of mind that we are resilient to attacks by Satan and comfort in Your fold. Continue to Bless me as I grow in You. Help me to understand this world that I might navigate it better to serve You. Give me “stick and rudder” Lord and continue to show me Your will. Bless us as Christian Americans Lord, that we be resilient and strong in spirit to overcome all obstacles. Bless our Families and Church Family for we all need you more now than ever. And special blessings for families in mourning and those that are sick for they need You. I ask that You comfort them and fill them with the Holy Spirit. I know I said a mouthful here Lord and I feel better already. Right now, this very minute starts a new day in my journey with You. Thank You for allowing me to serve You another day, please protect and comfort little Kennedy Lord, Your precious gift to my family and this world. Father place a hedge of protection of those in service to this great Country and guide our leadership that they make decisions supporting Your will. We love You, praise You and rejoice in knowing that in You all things are possible. In Your Holy name. Amen
PS… It’s was me again….. Thanks for listening. Ricky
