"...beauty for ashes" is exactly what we've seen in the sacrifices and love that has been poured out by all the recovery workers, family members, survivors, and others since the September 11th attacks. Even the stories we've heard about the courageous acts of those who died have demonstrated a spirit we have not seen in this country for a long time. But the day-to-day trials of those who were left behind or working to recover the bodies or those striving to help those workers has taken a toll. Daily they deal with the horrific stench of death, smoke, and ashes knowing they won't find anyone alive in "the hole" anymore. They can now only hope to find a body intact that they can return to a waiting family to be laid to rest. And this is leaving them with a sense of depression and aloneness that is undescribeable, and a sense of hopelessness that is overwhelming.|
Now it's our turn to help them. The Salvation Army has notified us that there's an urgent need for letters of support and encouragement with a commitment of daily prayer for each of the workers. That's what YOU can do for them. That's what the Lord expects US to do for them as believers.
The Angel Pin And Prayer Ministry is all about giving support through prayer to the recovery workers, their families, and all who have and are suffering as a direct result of the September 11th attacks. If you know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior and believe that prayer is our greatest weapon then we NEED you! If you don't yet know Jesus then NOW is the time to receive Him into your life and heart. There is no time like the present to get to know Him because you may not have another chance. The attacks on September 11th dramatically show you that. If you would like to learn more about Jesus, please click here.
Sign up to send a letter of support and an angel pin or other momento to them now. The angel pin or other momento will serve as a reminder to them that they are being prayed for and that the work they are doing is appreciated. Whenever they wear the pin or carry the momento with them they will be able to look at it and be reminded they are being prayed for. They will also be provided with your name and contact information so they can contact you with specific needs for prayer. Please don't wait to sign up. They need our support today. We are called to pray for each other and there's no better time than the present to pray for our fellow countrymen and women who need our prayers so badly now.

We also need people who will volunteer to spread the word about the Angel Pin And Prayer Ministry in their area.

Thank you for your support.
When your life is bitter ashes
He is your fortress and your shield.
Come dwell in the secret place,
We walk by faith, not by sight
