A Single Day of Prayer

country as flag

Remembering September 11, 2011At Nine A.M. , on 9-11, as the Eagle watched her nest;
the Towers fell, and loosed from Hell, was Satan's evil test.

"Eighty thousand could be dead", said the news at 2:00 o'clock;
and America fell down to Her knees, and said a prayer to God.

Our leaders led us in our prayers, and the singing of our praise;
five thousand was the final toll, in just the next few days.

He gave us strength, and courage; the Eagle spread Her wings.
Faith renewed our spirit, as Heaven's Glory reigned.

We stood back up with new resolve, and a reinforced foundation.
"In God We Trust" is in our hearts, "His Will Be Done", our stanchion.

He waited for us thirty years, to come back home to Him.
For Satan's work, He could not stop, without our will to live.

As King David saw Goliath, we see our problem now.
We load the sling of freedom, why should we worry how?

Seventy five thousand came home to us, from a single day of prayer.
He couldn't give them all back, you see, He needed some up there.

A sign He gave to us that day, and one we will remember.
His Holy Grace was with us all, that day in mid-September.

He proved to us beyond a doubt, His love is always there;
And all it took to prove it , was a single day of prayer...
"Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy Holy Name..."
