If My people
If my people, which are called by my name,

“If My people who are called by My name...”
From the desk of Sculptor - Bridgette Mongeon
In recognition of those who put their lives on the line everyday and to those who have lost their lives in doing so.
The events of September 11th, 2001, have effected us all. Words cannot describe the pain. I always try to find one smidgen of hope in everything that
happens. There is a scripture that states "all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Oftentimes it is hard to find good in anything tragic. But I know God can bring good to the surface. I have seen Him do it in my own personal tragedies.
One positive thing I found, was that the United States united in prayer. It has been a long time since prayer has been mentioned in the same context as our country in a positive manner.

This sculpture and its scripture are for the prayers, for the heroes, for those who are trying to do a good thing in an inheritantly evil world. May I remind each of us that there is another part to this scripture, "seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways," Let us all agree in prayer that our country will seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways. For the rewards are great, He promises to forgive our sins and heal our land.
Bless the recipient of this sculpture, the heroes and those who are determined to pray. Please help us to do good, to not look at what others are doing wrong, but to focus on how we can seek Your face and turn from wicked ways. Remind us to be diligent in praying for those who put their life on the line each day, for those who are in authority over us, and for the leaders of our country. Help us to love those who pray differently and to show love always. Protect us from the enemy who is hiding amongst us.
