May the Lord show every kindness to those who experienced a lost on 9/11. May his name be exalted as we embrace the joys of this short and fragile life. May 9/11 remind us to prepare to meet the Son of God, who died for sin and rose again, defeating death, so that he might provide life, righteousness, and comfort to all who trust in him. May God grant us wisdom to know that at any moment we are but one breath away from our last. May the Judge of all the earth bring to justice all terrorists determined to destroy civil society, and do so with mercy–with the mercy that rises as sets on us each day. May you come quickly, Lord Jesus.
