remembering 9/11 [+] Thursday E-Devotion

No doubt you will program after program, read article after article and more today about the terrible events of September 11, 2001.  I remember where I was that morning (sitting at my desk in Bassett, Virginia at church).  That night we had a humbling prayer time with lots of people at church.  What fell after the towers fell was horrific yet led many people to take an honest look at their faith and at God.
We have to remind people of that truth.  God is still God and He still changes lives!
Ecclesiastes 7:14 (nlt) --- Enjoy prosperity while you can,but when hard times strike, realize that both come from God.  Remember that nothing is certain in this life.
Hebrews 3:15 (nlt) --- Remember what it says: "Today when you hear his voice,don't harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled."
We are preparing for our 30 Days to Live series and are praying for people to come to know Jesus.  This is a time to remember God.  He has been our strength and our salvation.  Point others His direction.  As we did on and after 9/11 we must do once again and forever.
James 5:20 (nlt) --- you can be sure that whoever brings the sinner back will save that person from death and bring about the forgiveness of many sins.
Romans 10:13 (nlt) --- For "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

[+] Please Pray for those on our pray list that do not know Jesus.  Pray for families who have lost loved ones in the wake of September 11, 2001 (in war or other tragedys along the way).
