“A Prayer For Faithfulness As We Await Our Promised Reward”

July 5, 2017

Praying man Father, You lead us through the valleys and mountain top experiences of everyday life. Your ways are far superior to the path we might choose when guided by our own familiar past, faulty thinking, or poor role models. We’re so grateful for the strength and encouragement we receive from our brothers and sisters who bear our burdens,  share in our joys and sorrows, provide godly example and even gently rebuke when correction is needed. When weighing the decision of abandoning our faith or holding faithfully to the faith we profess, we join with Simon Peter who weighed the options and declared, “Lord, to whom shall we go?  You have the words of eternal life.  We believe and know that You are the Holy One of God.” (John 6:68,69). Enable us to deal with the daily stuff of life and to remember that You reward the faithful, though our greater and lasting reward will only be realized on the other side. Help us to learn the grace of being confident on this side as we continue to obey Your commands and await Your blessed reward. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
