I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we praise You that you spared our nation a second 9/11 on the 20th anniversary of that dark day! May we remember to thank You for all the many prayers You answer!

IFA invited intercessors to pray that there would not be another terrorist attack on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Knowing that the Muslim world has been energized by the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, we were concerned that there would be an attack against our people somewhere.

On September 11 my article MEMORIALS OF ANSWERED PRAYERS FROM 9/11 (https://staging.ifapray.org/blog/memorials-of-answered-prayers-from-9-11) was posted to www.HeadlinePrayer.org. It was a compilation of stories of how people were drawn to prayer before terrorists attacked our nation, and I pointed out that the enemy actually targeted close to 75,000 people, but only 4% died on that day.

After reading the previous article, artist Melissa Thomsen (www.MelissaJacie.com) wrote, “I actually wonder if, after the first strike Christians across the world started praying, and that is why the attacks seemed to get weaker as the third and fourth plane attacks happened.”

Many posted prayers like these below the 9/11 article:

Vickie says:

…I pray that You would prevent any attacks from occurring on the 20th anniversary. In Jesus’ name and authority, amen.

Susan CC says:

…Yes! Let’s pray fervently for safety in the U.S. and around the world, now that the Taliban’s victory over America in Afghanistan has energized terrorists around the globe… Amen!

Brian says:

…Lord, please uphold and protect our nation. By Your grace, keep us strong in our dependence upon Your provision, day by day, as we seek to serve and worship You. In Jesus’ name.

Joyce and I were in a morning prayer meeting on 9/11/21 and spent much of our time praying for safety. One of the intercessors in our group saw a vision of the wires to a bomb being cut as we prayed.  Let us praise the Lord for those on earth who were directed by the Lord to prevent attacks.  Let us praise the Lord for the angels He dispatched to watch over and prevent tragedy.

After the prayer meeting Joyce and I went down to the 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero in Manhattan to pray on site. We prayed that the terrorists will repent and renounce what they’ve done and be forgiven and come into salvation, and we prayed for protection. You can see that prayer at www.RichDrama.com/PrayingAt911Memorial.

In the previous article, I wrote, “We hope we don’t even hear what tragedies our prayers prevent!”

After doing a Duck Duck Go search just now, I believe it’s safe to say that our prayers were answered!

Thank you so much for interceding for America! We should be ready to praise the Lord when He answers our prayers.

I’ve now posted the 20th Anniversary performance of my one-man play Five Bells for 9/11, which you can watch for free through 9/22 at www.RichDrama.com/FiveBells.

they were too busy celebrating their victory of the 20 year war that started on 9/11 to be bothered attacking us,again,at least for now.
footnote- – actually,the war we just lost was a retaliation against christianity in general- in retaliation for the beating that islam took at the Gates Of Vienna from chrisitian fotces in 632.ad.,approximately.Year may be not exact.The lesson here is that Islamic culture thinks in centuries,even multiple centuries,not just 20 or 50 years,like western and Christian culture thinks.Hard lesson to learn,,BUT,it was written,it was not an accident .God is still on the throne

Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Thank you Rich for your insights and the offer to watch Five Bells. I appreciated experiencing another look at 9/11 events and five of the heroes.

    Words cannot express the thankfulness we have as a nation to the LORD, OUR GOD. May You continue to move with mercy and grace upon this country. For Your Glory Lord, we exalt the Name of the Lord.

AE911Truth.org (Thousands of Architects and Engineers who are spreading the 9/11/2001 Truth)

Pray about it☝️

Our country is filled with evil leaders, who still “claim” our country was attacked by third world men who dwell in caves. May this website open our eyes and may the truth spread and not be suppressed under the notion that our leaders can be trusted on their word. Let what happen in Afghanistan stand as a red flag to the harsh reality that our own leader murdered thousands in cold blood to advance a new authority. (the new beast).

We see the benefits of the Patriot Act in full swing post Jan 6 (extremism aka Patriotism, FBI tracking). It’s no wonder the Patriot Act of 2001 was pushed through the Senate without anyone being able to fully read the bill. This is how they do it.

No one wants to listen to “Infowars” news either (due to personal comfort) which has been statistically right 88% of the time. Alex Jones called the situation we are in this, via UN documents, Alex isn’t banned more than Trump for no reason. It’s time to wake up.
