Hymns: Great Is Your Faithfulness; 520:1-6; 520:7-12; God Bless Our Native Land
Pre-Service Prayer:

Dear heavenly Father, as we remember the violence perpetrated by terrorists against our country ten years ago, move us to repentance over our sins; cause us to look to You for our safety; and lead us to ever greater faithfulness as we seek to follow You, our Savior and Lord!  We pray on behalf of our nation for Your presence, Your consolation, Your instruction, and Your mercy. Be with us as we worship this day. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 70

Remember the Lord's Mercy!

Second Reading: 

Romans 8:18-39

The apostle Paul assures us that while we may well suffer many things in this life, our suffering cannot and will not compare to the glory we will experience in heaven.  He promises that all things will work out for our good as we love God, for He has chosen us in connection with Christ from eternity, has called us into a relationship with Him, and has promised us that nothing will ever separate us from His love!
