Surviving 81st Floor of World Trade Tower Two

September 11, 2001 (Tuesday) – For all victims of the terrorism tragedy in the United States of America.

* A testimony of God\’s hand of protection amidst tragedy *

by the Editors of Religion Today

Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, began like any other day for Bethel Assembly of God deacon and Sunday school superintendent Stanley Praimnath of Elmont, Long Island. He got up early, took a shower, prayed, got ready and headed for work. The drive was uneventful. The train ride was the same. Yet, this day he would see the hand of God spare his life.

\”For some particular reason, I gave the Lord a little extra of myself that morning {during prayer},\” Stanley said. \”I said, \’Lord, cover me and all my loved ones under your precious blood...

The Cross Room

The young man was at the end of his rope.

Seeing no way out, he dropped to his knees in prayer.

\”Lord, I can\’t go on,\” he said.

\”I have too heavy a cross to bear.\”

The Lord replied,

\”My son, if you can\’t bear it\’s weight,

just place your cross inside this room.

Then open another door and pick any cross you wish.\”

The man was filled with relief.

\”Thank you, Lord,\”

he sighed, and did as he was told.

As he looked around the room he saw many different crosses;

some so large the tops were not visible.

Then he spotted a tiny cross leaning against a far wall.

\”I\’d like that one, Lord,\”

he whispered. And the Lord replied,

\”My son, that\’s the cross you brought in.\”

Death Row

A letter written to a man on death row by the Father of the man whom the man on death row had killed:

You are probably surprised that I, of all people, am writing a letter to you, but I ask you to read it in its entirety and consider its request seriously. As the Father of the man whom you took part in murdering, I have something very important to say to you. I forgive you. With all my heart, I forgive you. I realize it may be hard for you to believe, but I really do. At your trial, when you confessed to your part in the events that cost my Son his life and asked for my forgiveness, I immediately granted you that forgiving love from my heart.

I can only hope you believe me and will accept my forgiveness. But this is not all I have to say to you...

Three Stringed Violin

On November 18th, 1995, Itzhak Perlman, the violinist, came on stage to give a concert at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City.

If you have ever been to a Perlman concert, you know that getting on stage is no small achievement for him. He was stricken with polio as a child, and so he has braces on both legs and walks with the aid of two crutches. To see him walk across the stage one step at a time, painfully and slowly, is an awesome sight.

He walks painfully, yet majestically, until he reaches his chair. Then he sits down, slowly, puts his crutches on the floor, undoes the clasps on his legs, tucks one foot back and extends the other foot forward. Then he bends down and picks up the violin, puts it under his chin, nods to the conductor and proceeds to play.

By now, the aud...
