A PRAYER FOR OUR TIME by Pamela & Joseph Martin
In response to the tragic events of September 11, 2001
May God Bless our nation

Our God to Thee we pray.
Heal our nation, Lord today.
God of mercy grant us courage.
Give us peace, give us peace, give us peace.

When evil draws its angry sword
and seeks to sever freedom’s cord.
When death and darkness shake our faith
in God’s unfailing pow’r to save.
Eternal Father, ever be our courage in the time of need.

When war is waged by faceless foes
who battle peace with fiery blows,
when storms of hate and fear assail,
our Father’s mighty arm prevails.
Eternal Father, ever be our refuge in the time of need.

There is no tyrant who can stand
against our sure Defender’s hand.
No threat or danger can defeat
the strong and righteous Prince of Peace.
Eternal Father, ever be our fortress in the time of need.
Amen.

O Lord, bless the memory of those who died September 11, 2001, and give their families your peace that passes understanding. Bless our beloved country with your protection that we may dwell in safety and with your guidance that we may be faithful leaders in the world. And though we do not wish it, Jesus commands us to pray for our enemies, so we condemn them to your mercy. Amen.

We remember, God of history and remembrance, we remember. We remember when the towers fell and the lives were lost; we remember the dust and the smoke, the despair, and the grief. We remember that sense of vulnerability and shock. We remember the numbness that overwhelmed us as we watched our screens for hours and hours, waiting for an explanation and understanding that never came. We remember.

We remember, God of hope and presence, we remember. We remember the heroes, those who rushed to help, who guided the wounded down innumerable flights of stairs, who rose to overwhelm those who held death in their hands. We remember the hours and the days of binding wounds and healing hurts, giving comfort, drying tears. We remember words of support and compassion from nations far and wide. We remember.

We remember in part because we see the ripples of that tragic day continue to impact our world twenty years later. We grieve with allies today as our allies grieved with us twenty years ago. And together we wonder if there will ever be an end . . . to violence, to war, to hatred, to death. We remember and we grieve our world’s inability to learn the things that lead to peace.

We call to you now in our remembrance, God of justice and of peace. Give us a will to truly pray that your kingdom may come on earth as it is in heaven. Amen and Amen.

On this day of solemn remembrance:
May we honor the lives that were lost in this tragic act.
May we give thanks for those who served and saved, rendered aid and assistance.
May we give comfort to those who live with loss.
May we seek justice and peace where it is within our ability,
and rely on you when the ability escapes us.

On this day of solemn remembrance:
May we build what has been torn down.
May we mend what has been broken.
May we live your love when hate seems to reign.
May we bear witness to the cause of peace.

Amen.

Message in Testimony ad Song by Keron Jackson with Barbara Loest, pianist

08/24/2021

Don't miss our exciting 5th Sunday Joint Worship Celebration this Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m., with Keron Jackson as our featured guest. Keron has been with us several times before. This Sunday he will give his life testimony and sing numerous songs for us. Invite others to come and be BLESSED!

Keron’s life story is one of victory over circumstances; of God’s provision and grace; of the love of God that crosses racial
boundaries; of victory through Christ Jesus.

Although he has taken the stage at prestigious venues like Carnegie Hall and the Dallas Opera, the most important part of Keron Jackson’s life is motivational speaking. Keron believes that
he is not unique, and lives on this earth just like everyone else. We’ve all been lost, forgotten and not loved. Keron wants to reach out to those in poverty, those whose parents are on drugs,
and the kids that try to do better even though no one says, “good job.”

If you heard Keron before, you’ll surely be present. If you missed Keron before, you’ll certainly want to be present. We encourage you be present in person, if at all possible. You’ll be able to HEAR his voice on Livestream. You’ll be able to FEEL his voice if you are present!
