Today’s Key Scripture
“Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace, according to Your word; for my eyes have seen Your salvation.”
— Luke 2:29-30
In the Old Covenant, God announced He would send the Messiah, and a man named Simeon prayed it would come to pass: “It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ” (Luke 2:26). So when Jesus was brought to the temple, Simeon took Him into his arms, and thanked God for fulfilling the long-held promise.
So let’s pray the prophetic scriptures from God’s Word:
- Father, You declared, “All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before You” (Psalm 22:27).
- Jesus, You promised, “This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).
We know that Jesus promised to return, yet we are admonished to pray, “Come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20).
Why is this important? He is coming for a people who are “looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13).
Pray for a revival to sweep the world. Pray for your loved ones to know the Savior. Pray!
A Prayer for Today
My heavenly Father, I pray Your promises today. I ask for Your fresh anointing today. I long to be refreshed by the oil of your Holy Spirit as it flows over my life. Father, I pray for revival to sweep over my community, the nation, and the world. I pray for my lost loved ones to accept You before it is too late. And as Your return nears, I pray for You to help me be used to bring healing, deliverance, signs, wonders, and miracles to those around me. I look forward today to all You have in store for me, and I pray all this in Jesus’ holy name, amen.
