While reading in the Book of Amos just now, I discovered something that I’ve overlooked in the past. 

It’s the verse of Amos 9:11 –  In that day I will restore the fallen kingdom of David.  It is now like a house in ruins, but I will rebuild its walls and restore its former glory. 

Those are very interesting and encouraging words when you think about what happened on 9/11 and that Bible address is 9:11.  Even more interesting is that the verse above was written approximately 760-750 BC. 

Dear Lord, We’ve seen much re-building and restoration since 9/11, not just of buildings, but of faith and brotherhood.  May we continue to be a nation that prospers under YOUR leadership and strives to be a nation that brings You glory.  Amen.
