The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you,
And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”
Lord, I thank You for loving us and providing mercy on us. I do not understand the hatred that others have in their hearts but I do understand the love You have in yours. Lord I pray today for those who lost their lives this dreadful day of 9/11. I pray for the families who lost their loved ones. I ask You to continue to wrap Your loving arms around them and give them peace in the knowledge that they will be with them again one day. Amen!
