E-mail Prayer for the United States

My fellow Americans, our country has been forever changed in the aftermath of the horrific events of Tuesday morning. Old Glory flies at half mast today as if hanging her head in sorrow. But ours is a nation of resilient people. We can, we will, we must overcome. Now is the time for turning of eyes, hearts nad minds toward our Heavenly Father. As St. Therese once said, "One person and God are an army". Let us band together and create that army. An army not aimed at vengence, but instead aimed at healing. All I ask is that when you recieve this, you say the prayer that follows just once for all that has happened and let us flood that gates of heaven with prayers for our country.

Heavenly Father
We come before you today a nation scorned.
We are weakened by the demise of our own morale, and by the tragedy of the great loss of human life.
But we know that through you Father, we will not perish, we will not go quietly into the night.
We ask that you bestow your love and help upon the souls of the victims as well as their families.
We pray that you will send your Holy Spirit to work hand in hand with the leaders of this nation, and that they will be inspired to follow the path that leads to you.
We pray also that every soul of this nation will be moved with compassion, that no one will idily sit if help is needed.
We send prayers for the misguided children who are responsible for these acts and hope they will soon be led to you .
And finally we pray that you, Heavenly Father, will be with us in this, our time of need, as well as in the future, and help us to develop the most righteous course of action.We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.

"God's dwelling is with the human race, He will dwell with them as their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain for the old order has passed away.... The one who sat upon the throne said 'Behold, I make all things new'".
Revelation 21:3-5.
