Prayer: “Our Eyes are on the Future”           (Based on Revelations 21:1-16)

Lord, we look forward to the day when tears are gone,

when mourning and crying and pain are distant memories,

 

when death is an impossibility.

Our lives are too full of misery and confusion;

joy and bliss flee far too soon.

Bless us, O God, to gather strength from the promise of your return.

Until the day when all becomes new,

our eyes are on the future as we wait patiently for your return.  Amen.
