9/11 prayer group

I am posting this announcement about a prayer group for people with ongoing concerns related to 9/11. Some friends and I were talking recently... and now it exists. It's an interesting return for me. I founded an online prayer group (WTC-Prayer@yahoogroups.com) immediately after 9/11, which ran its course and ended in 2002. A decade later, people still live with 9/11 and continue to feel the need for prayer.

ANNOUNCEMENT: New 9/11 Prayer group
Please share and repost

facebook.com/groups/911prayer
911prayer.org

Like so many others, we have been affected by 9/11, our experiences of that day and its aftermath, and the many wonderful people we have met. People move on, and people still struggle with the effects of 9/11.

As our community moves through life, we can remember each other in prayer. Prayer connects us to a higher power, and prayer also connects us to one another.

This 9/11 Prayer group is for people involved in the events of 9/11 to share prayer and requests for prayer. The group is founded and maintained by 9/11 responders.

Post your prayer requests and prayers. If you have a name or prayer concern you would like prayer for but would not like to share publicly, please use the Facebook ABOUT tab or the website's “About us” page to email the group administrator(s). We hope that many participants will commit to including these prayer concerns in their regular prayers.

This is an interfaith group. People of different beliefs participate. Please feel free to speak in your own voice and with your faith tradition, and please respect others.

Anyone can join the Facebook group. Anyone can see the group and who's in it. Only members see posts.

It's a pity you don't have a donate button! I'd most certainly donate to this outstanding blog! I guess for now i'll settle for
book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group.
