Saints in Glory

CALL TO PRAYER
Repeat and or meditate on this verse until your thoughts are centered on God.
 
O keep me in thy tend'rest care;
thy shelt'ring wings stretch out,
to guard me safe from savage foes,
that compass me about.
 —Psalm Psalm 17:8-9
Suggested tune: Dundee (CM)


 
SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY
The holy ones of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever—forever and ever.
—Daniel 7:18
 
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Saints in glory, we together
know the song that ceases never;
Song of songs thou art, O Savior;
all that endless day.

Come, ye angels, round us gather,
while to Jesus we draw nearer;
in his throne he’ll seat for ever
those for whom he died.

Underneath his throne a river,
clear as crystal, flows for ever,
like his fullness, failing never:
hail, enthronèd Lamb!

Oh, unsearchable Redeemer!
Shoreless ocean, sounded never!
Yesterday, today, for ever,
Jesus Christ, the same!
—Nehemiah Adams
 
TODAY'S PRAYER
Eternal God, you have always taken men and women of every nation, age, and tongue and made them saints. Baptized like them in Jesus' Name, like them transformed, give me, I pray, a share of your glory...

YOUR OWN PRAYERS
Allow the above to help guide your own confession, praise, thanksgiving, and/or petition.

THE LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
 —Matthew 6:9-13
