9/11 survivor shares story of ‘God grace’

For the fourth time since the deadly attacks on The World Trade Center, 9/11 survivor Stanley Praimnath shared how God led him out of the South Tower that fateful day. Praimnath worked as an assistant vice president at Fuji Bank on the 81st floor. Even 14 years later, the day still reminds him of God’s power over evil. “I was that man that saw the destruction process and now I am looking at the rebuilding process. You can build bigger, better, taller, stronger, but until you turn to god and acknowledge Him, He will make the enemies break down the wall.” Praimnath had said to start off his story.

I said, ‘God you have the power now,’ and I dove under my desk.” The plane destroyed the four floors that housed Praimnath’s company. The floors above him caved in and were hanging over his desk. His desk was the only one left standing, and on top of his desk sat his Bible. Praimnath took in his surroundings and noted many electric cables in the sprinklers and objects being sucked out of the windows because of the air pressure created by the broken windows. Everything around him was on fire. Praimnath knew he couldn’t make it out alive on his alone. Praimnath said he cried out to God, “Send somebody to help, anybody.” And within seconds a man appeared with a flashlight. This man, Brian Clark, worked on the 84th...
