Father, so much is going on. So much is pressing in. So much is weighing us down. So much is bending our hearts and heads away from you. I pray that we lift our eyes to your power and might. I pray that we meet Jesus for who he is and what he means to our past, present and future. He is Jeshua, the One who saves us. Father, you are El Roi, the God who sees us. Show us your glory, LORD, show us your Son. Show us the only answer. I praise you for your plan that draws me to heaven to be with you always. Thank you, Father. I pray in Jesus’ name, and according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” (Revelation 22:16 ESV)
