Lord, one day, You will replace the earthly stone with my name carved by your hand with a white stone and a new name. The new stone, whether a ticket to the wedding supper of the Lamb or a symbol of endearing and eternal relationship with You, has a special place in my heart these remaining days in the land of the living. I look forward to taking this new stone and new name for your name’s sake. I bless the day I surrendered to follow You. I thank You for your faithful friendship and revered lordship in your name above all others and by your authority greater than any other, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.” (Revelation 2:17 ESV)
