Sign Petition to urge Mayor Bloomberg

Allow prayer to be included in New York City's 9/11 ceremony.

      Bronx, NY

New York City Council Member Fernando Cabrera, a pastor at New Life Outreach International, a Bronx church, has started this petition to urge Mayor Bloomberg to allow prayer to be a part of the ceremony commemorating the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

After the tragic events of September 11th 2001, many Americans turned to prayer in order to cope with the extreme and unexpected loss of innocent life. Now, as New York City commemorates the tenth anniversary of this horrific event, Mayor Bloomberg is refusing to allow prayer to be included in the ceremony.

If you support Councilman Cabrera's fight to allow prayer to be included in the 9/11 ceremony, please sign this petition.

      At a time like this only our belief in God can sustain us. Through prayer we show the families of those who lost their lives that we grieve with them.

      On America's most dreadful day the last words spoken from these victims were "Oh God, please save me. We all looked to prayer that day and days to follow.

      I just think people should realize that whether they acknowledge it or not, God is still in control.The Mayor will stand before God one day and have to try, unsuccessfully I might add, why he wanted to leave God out. Wouldn't want to be him on that day.
