May El Roi (God who sees you) meet you right where you are, right now.
Our Almighty Father who is in Heaven, blessed is your Name.
Thank you for your many blessings, Lord, especially for the brave men and women who served so valiantly on September 11, 2001. They left behind a lasting legacy of what it means to be a hero.
Heavenly Father, they also left behind their own personal hero.
To be a firefighter spouse takes courage, and a surrendered heart.
To be a spouse of the fallen 343 FDNY firefighters takes a special courage I don’t personally know.
Lord be with the spouses in the sweet, silent memories of their beloved firefighter.
Lord shine your Heavenly Love on their aching hearts and grief.
Lord may their memory carry on each day in the heart of the American people.
Lord, bless each and every spouse of the 343 fallen FDNY firefighters.
Lord, meet each spouse directly where they are, and may they feel safe to lay any heavy burdens at your feet.
May their steadfast courage shine as valiantly as their spouse’s.
Thank you, Lord, for the heroism shown that day, twenty years ago.
Thank you, Lord, for being our…
El Roi (the God who sees us), our
Redeemer, and thank you for being
Omnipresent, even on the days we struggle to see, hear, feel and your presence.
In your name we pray…. Amen, Amen, Amen!
...You will grieve, but your grief will turn into joy. John 16:20
September 11, 2001. We will never forget.
