The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their cry.
The face of the LORD is against those who do evil,
To cut off the remembrance of them from the face of the earth.
Psalm 34:15-16 (NKJV)
A Psalm of David
When one who follows God, truly obeys Him, He listens to his or her petitions. God guides them through those circumstances.
However, the LORD looks askance on the pleas of those who do evil. He removes the evil-doers from the memory of those who live on our earth.
Today is the 22nd anniversary of the World Trade Center disaster, also known as 9/11. It is a melancholy time in the United States. There were too many taken to remember each one individually. We remember them as a group and their families.
However, we do not remember the perpetrators. They brought evil to our nation by their nation’s and their religion’s disrespect for human life.
Help us, Father, to remember those who were taken unexpectedly that morning and especially those who chose to keep this disaster from escalating. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen
