Silent Skies

Silent Sky

I remember the silent skies.

All air travel had been grounded in the days following September 11, 2001.

The sky silently echoed the world’s hush as we held our collective breath in the days following September 11, 2001. Together, we wept for those lost, and prayed for an answer to our collective question – why?

Many voiced reasons why a Middle Eastern terrorist group would attack America. But why in such a heinous fashion, seemingly “out of the blue”? I don’t have the answer to that question. I have a different answer.

Pray for peace. Why can’t we petition God for a season of peace throughout the world?

Continue to pray for those that lost a loved one because of the September 11 tragedy. Pray continually for our soldiers that still fight to push back tyranny, and stand at the ready, around the globe. Pray for your family, for your community, and for your church to all be beacons of hope. And, if you hear God whisper that you should get more involved, do it. Be His hands and feet in this hurting, splintered world.

God Bless America. God bless you, reader.

  1. I remember the silent skies too, it was so unfamiliar, it said “something is wrong” in no voice at all. How strange those days were. We must must never forget that there are people out there seeking our demise everyday. Make no mistake about that, and they will continue until the end of time. Our vigilance must also remain.
