Prayer for America

by Debbie Loesel Stanton

9/11/2012

God,

In you we trust

Even when horrific events happen.

We do not understand

why the Tormentor has been able to win

but we know someday the tides will turn.

You will be able to send Evil back to where it belongs.

I pray peace upon this nation

that you have given us

and ask for your help

so America can indeed be

The Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.

I pray for the families of those lost in the 9/11 tragedy,

that even now when their hearts are still hurting

they will be able to find peace – and You.

Protect us from our enemies and

bring us to repentance as well,

so America can be the gift to us

that you meant it to be.

Help us to put away all strife, envy, bitterness, evil and greed

that threaten to undo us with every passing day.

God, in you we trust.

Amen.

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, http://www.innersunshine.net launched. Thank you for visiting!
