Let us take a moment today to remember those who lost their lives on 9/11. For many in our country and all over the world today is a painful day. They live with the reality of 9/11 every day, every occasion, every celebration and every setback.
May such affliction never ever again occur on our land, in our nation, and in our world. May God heal the sick and restore the brokenhearted. May God fulfill His promises to bless widows and orphans. May God bless the United States of America.
“We put our hope in the LORD. He is our help and our shield” (Psalm 33:20).
1 The Lord is my light and the one who saves me.
So why should I fear anyone?
The Lord protects my life.
So why should I be afraid?
2 Evil people may try to destroy my body.
My enemies and those who hate me attack me,
but they are overwhelmed and defeated.
3 If an army surrounds me,
I will not be afraid.
If war breaks out,
I will trust the Lord.
4 I ask only one thing from the Lord.
This is what I want:
Let me live in the Lord’s house
all my life.
Let me see the Lord’s beauty
and look with my own eyes at his Temple.
5 During danger he will keep me safe in his shelter.
He will hide me in his Holy Tent,
or he will keep me safe on a high mountain.
6 My head is higher than my enemies around me.
I will offer joyful sacrifices in his Holy Tent.
I will sing and praise the Lord.
Psalm 27:1-6, NCV.
