Lord God: as the vision you gave to the Apostle John unfolds this week, give me ears to hear, eyes to see, and a willing spirit to obey your word. Part the heavens, and give me a glimpse into eternity as the end times unfold. May I take to heart your word to the seven churches – both the encouragement and warning. Free me from my sins, and lead me along the path of life – that I may serve faithfully as a priest of your Kingdom, until you return. Amen.
Lord Jesus: keep my eyes fixed on you, especially during times when I’m feeling overwhelmed. Hear me when I cry out to you. And when I am at my weakest, strengthen me by your grace. Come to me in times of trouble so that I may find rest for my soul. Thank you for claiming me as your child and guiding me by your Spirit. I am yours, and you are mine. Amen.
