For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

Lord’s Prayer

Heavenly King,

Before You, every knee will one day bow and every tongue confess that You are Lord (Philippians 2:10). You are the Lamb who was slain, worthy “to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing” (Revelation 5:12). “Every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them” will confess, “To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” (Revelation 5:13). Lord, we look forward to the day when this will become reality for us, but in the meantime there are many who do not believe in You and do not confess You. They too will one day kneel before You, acknowledging You as the true and only Lord, but they will kneel in terror as they meet You as their judge rather than their Savior. Lord, convert the hearts of unbelievers to avoid this fate. We pray also that You would move Your children everywhere to be witnesses for You to those who do not know You. Give us a passion for sharing Your Word, that we may take this task seriously, knowing one’s eternal welfare is ultimately the only thing that matters in life. We look forward to the day when we will kneel before Your throne in worship, together with the whole company of heaven and all our fellow saints of all times and all places. 

Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
