The following are Prayers of Worship from the wonderful book “Praying the Book of Revelation” by Elmer L. Towns.
Your Time to Worship
Lord, You give the devil and his followers what they continually seek – ruin, disaster, and misery. Thank You for giving me peace.
Lord, when I see human devastation, You are there working Your plan. Thank You for taking care of me.
Lord, when it seems Satan is controlling everything, You are behind the scenes, directing Your plan. Thank You for working all things for good to us who love You.
Lord, when I have personal catastrophes, You do not let them overwhelm me. Thank You for protecting me.
Lord, when the lives of good people are destroyed by Satan, You have a greater life and reward for them in Heaven. Thank You for your faithfulness to each one of us who follow You.
Your Time to Worship
Lord, You are so full of surprises; when I fear death, You give me life and a parade. Thank You for caring.
Lord, Your surprises come unexpectedly; when I expect bad days, You give me a good eternity. Thank You for life.
Lord, You told me to keep my lamp trimmed because You might come at any hour. Thank You for keeping promises.
Lord, You surprised the scoffers of Noah’s day by sending a flood, but You did what You promised. Thank You for Your faithfulness.
Lord, You gave talents to Your workers and told them to work faithfully till You returned. When payday came, You rewarded them. Thank You for rewards promised to me in the future.
What I Learned about the Martyrs’ Parade from the Revelation 7:1-11:15
I will enjoy in Heaven the benefits of the decisions I make on earth.
I should be happy to identify with God’s cause on earth, because I will receive His mark on my forehead in Heaven.
I should praise God for everything – even suffering – because God will reward me for them when I get to Heaven.
I should do all I can to win people to Christ on earth because there will be no second chance of salvation after death.
I know God loves me and will preserve me, while Satan’s desire is to destroy all people.
