From Handbook to Prayer
Jesus will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David, and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will never end. (Luke 1:32–33)
The heavens will vanish like smoke;
The earth will wear out like a garment,
And its inhabitants will die in the same way.
But Your salvation will last forever,
And Your righteousness will never fail. (Isaiah 51:6)
God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Christ and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. (Colossians 1:19–20)
Pause to reflect upon these biblical affirmations.
Let those who love the Lord hate evil.
He preserves the souls of His saints
And delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
Light is sown for the righteous
And gladness for the upright in heart. (Psalm 97:10–11)
Pause to offer your own expressions of thanksgiving.
The Lord has established His throne in heaven,
And His kingdom rules over all.
Bless the Lord, you His angels,
Mighty in strength who do His bidding,
Obeying the voice of His word.
Bless the Lord, all His hosts,
You His servants who do His will.
Bless the Lord, all His works,
In all places of His dominion.
Bless the Lord, O my soul. (Psalm 103:19–22)
