The following are Prayers of Worship from the wonderful book “Praying the Book of Revelation” by Elmer L. Towns.
Your Time to Worship
Lord, I worship You for Your infinite knowledge, for when I am frustrated by my ignorance, teach me to trust You who knows all things.
Lord, I acknowledge You who knows all things past, present, future, and all things potential. Teach me to trust You who knows what is best for me.
Lord, You know everything about my feelings, desired, and hidden thoughts; teach me to trust Your purging of my ungodly thoughts and desires.
Lord, You continually know all things; teach me to trust Your plan for my life when I can’t understand it, just as I know the sun is shining when I can’t see it.
Lord, You are never surprised by anything; and I am shocked, disappointed, and frustrated. Teach me to trust what You know, not what I can see.
Your Time to Worship
Lord, I love to sing about your mercy, but I’m afraid of Your judgement. Bury my sin in the blood of the Lamb.
Lord, I would devote myself to sin, if I did not know You punish misbehaviour. Lord, make me obey You.
Lord, there is a “straightness” in Your expectations, but I am “crooked”! Draw a straight line with this crooked stick I call life.
Lord, You have never condemned an innocent person, nor have You overlooked the guilty. Remember, I come to You in the perfections of Jesus Christ; He is all I plead.
Lord, You never delight in making people miserable for the sake of misery, but You punish because of Your truth. I worship You in the security of Jesus Christ.
What I Learned about the Lamb from the Revelation 5:1-6:17
I must always remember to look past my difficulties to the joy of seeing Jesus in Heaven.
I must make Jesus the centre of my focus on earth, because He will be the centre of my focus in Heaven.
I must constantly worship Jesus for the Salvation He accomplished for me on Calvary. If I lose the focus of sins forgiven, I’ve lost my perspective in life.
I can endure difficulties on earth, knowing Jesus will one day do away with all evil and its influences in the future.
I find purpose and meaning in life when I worship Jesus, the One who is worthy to receive my adoration.
