Day 23 of Powerful Prayer

32 Days of Powerful Prayer

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22nd  •  PRAYER FOR PERSPECTIVE ABOUT LIFE & DEATH

Scripture for the Day: “And I heard a voice from heaven saying, ‘Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’ ‘Blessed indeed,’ says the Spirit, ‘that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!’” (Rev 14:13)

Thought for the Day: Physical death, while inevitable for all of us, is something many view with fear and dread. But the death of God’s son or daughter isn’t the senseless end of a futile existence. In fact, it’s the “precious” (Psa 116:15) conclusion of time on this earth and the glorious beginning of eternal blessing.

Seeds for Today’s Prayers: “Father, help me to see death as you see it. I dedicate myself to living and dying as one ‘in the Lord.’ May my labors on earth glorify you. But help me always to remember that to live is Christ, and to die is gain (Phil 1:21).”
