September 11

Today’s prayer:

Isaiah 26:3 KJV — Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your sacrifice which paid the price for sin. Thank You that it is through Your example we see what love truly is: John 15:13 KJV “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” Lord Jesus, it is because of You we have hope. Lord, as I pause and remember the tragedy of 911, I thank You that we have hope. That our hearts, although grieved, deeply grieved by the attacks, can look to You and find a much bigger picture than what seemed such a senseless act of brutality. It’s the same act we are seeing today around the world. People killing, abusing, and hurting other people. It’s Cain and Able all over again, Lord. Thank You for saving us from this horrible cycle of mankind hurting mankind. Instead, You taught us to love one another, to pray for one another, to do good to our enemies, to live righteously before You and to be wise. You told us to abhor evil and cling to what is good. Lord, when we do not follow these things, when we turn our backs upon Your truth, the consequences are severe: pain, death, tragedy, and it is all because of sin and the enemy of our souls. Lord, please help us to remember that we do not fight against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers, there is a host of demons and they’re out to destroy us. Lord, please help us to choose to live with integrity, honor, loyalty, joy, peace, patience, forgiveness, and love. Lord, help us to look for opportunities to reach out to the hurting, the sick, the abused. Lord, please draw up an army of people who will pray. Lord, please raise up a group of people who will walk as Your twelve disciples did in the generation that condemned You to death. Surely, there was no darker time than when Your own creation chose to crucify You instead of follow You. If those men could live righteously in that day, we can in this. Thank You that we need fear neither man nor demons nor even death, because You died and rose again. You paid the price once and for all. What glorious salvation! What joy! What wonderful hope!Lord Jesus, thank You for Your faithfulness, Your mercy, truth, grace, goodness, Your great salvation! May the whole Earth be filled with the knowledge of the glory of You! Amen.
