Dear LORD Jesus: 

You alone are most worthy of praise and glory and honor. We call on you today for protection, salvation, and understanding. Your Word says, "We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed."  (2 Corinthians 4:8)

We ask for physical, emotional and spiritual healing for all those injured in Tuesday's attack on America. We ask that you would grant wisdom to our leaders, and strength to all the emergency personnel. Help us LORD to know how to bring light, life, and help to those that are hurting. Help us to remember that you are ALWAYS in control. May we find our comfort in you. May this American tragedy be used to turn the hearts of the people of the world to you. 

Your Word says, "...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." Amen. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Unity Pin - USA-CANADA Pin

Kellie from Canada came up with a clever idea...combine her country's flag with the USA. 

 

Directions to make the Unity Pin, Half American and half Canadian flag:
Show that you are standing in prayer along side our American Friends!

Materials: 1- 1 inch safety pin
10- 1 inch safety pins
16 blue seed beads
49 red seed beads
35 white seed beads

Method: Place the 10 smaller safety pins on the larger one, pushing them
beyond the end. It will be necessary to pry open the coil at the end of the
large pin to do this. All the small pins should be on the side of the large
pin that does not open with their open side facing out.

Start on the pin to the far left
Pin #1: place 4 blue beads, (1 red, 1 white) 3xs. 10 beads on the pin.
Pin #2 - #4: repeat as for #1.
Pin #5: (1 red, 1 white) 5xs.
Pin #6: 1 white, 7 red, 2 white.
Pin #7: 2 white, 2 red, 1 white, 2 red, 3 white.
Pin #8: 5 white, 1 red, 4 white,
Pin #9: 10 red.
Pin #10: 10 red.

Seed beads can vary slightly in size. Beads of uniform size help with
continuity. If you cannot fit 10 beads on a pin leaving the last bead in
each row off should still make a decent design. The tricky part about
experimenting with bead size is keeping the stripes of the American flag
lined up and the beads that make of the maple leaf (pins #6-8) aligned.

Brenda of Newport, Mi wrote in to say, "Another way we have found to help is by making the Freedom Pins. We have donated all the items to make them and sell them for $2.00 each and ALL the money goes to the Red Cross Relief fund."

Editor's note: I love this idea! If anyone else would like to sell the Freedom Pins, you are granted a license to use the directions in the site, so long as ALL the monies generated are then sent to a bonafide charity.

Bobbi wrote in to say, "Thank you for the Support America Ribbons!!! I printed your ribbons and then covered both sides in clear adhesive shelf paper (you can find it
in the shelf paper section}. I found various lapel pins; one with John 3:16 and another with a fish with Jesus written inside. The pins have 2 pieces-the pin in front with a squeeze back. I found both the clear adhesive shelf paper and the lapel pins in my local dollar store. I first covered the ribbon, then pushed the pin through the middle of the ribbon, then through your clothing and then attaching the back of the pin on the underside of your fabric. Your ribbons will last longer by covering it. Thank you for having a great web-site, a place where we can find various Christian Crafts. God Bless America!!! Bobbi"
 

Stephanie of Albuquerque, NM wrote in to say, "The children of the YMCA Before/After School program at one of our elementary schools are making and selling the Freedom Pins for $2.00 each. One half goes for their own site (which is non-profit) and the other dollar the children will send to the Red Cross. This gives them two different ways to contribute--to the Red Cross, of course, but also gives support to their country, and the pins are selling faster than the children can make them. Thanks for a simple craft that allows our children to support patriotism!"
