Zechariah 9:8 NIV
But I will defend my house against marauding forces. Never again will an oppressor overrun my people, for now I am keeping watch.
Today we remember the events that unfolded seven years ago, may we all commit to keep watch over our home—our country.
I pray that as Americans who have differences, which make each us unique, come together to keep watch against the schemes of the enemy. We all have a part as one nation under God.
Let’s remember those who served fearlessly this day seven years ago.
Let’s thank those who serve today without hesitation!
- Our Armed Forces and National Guard who defend our nation (home) abroad from threats
- Our Homeland Security personnel—Coast Guard, Border Patrol, Customs & Immigration who are literally on the “wall” of our land keeping watch as well as the DOJ’s FBI, DEA and other federal agents
- State, County and local police forces
- Emergency Medical Teams
All these people work in defense of our country. To all of you who serve in one way or another—
For the rest of us, while those who serve protect our physical homes, let us remember that we are in a spiritual battle. We’re to keep watch and pray as believers in Christ. May we watch through prayer over our home—our country.
MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA!
