Memorize and Reflect

9 Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say: 11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.” Revelation 4:9-11

Prayer Direction

Lift up prayers of thanks that God is on the throne no matter what our eyes may see. Pray for God’s amazing provision in the lives of friends, family, and people around our world who are struggling in these challenging financial times. Pray for all those who are in leadership in your county, state, and nations…May God guide them (even when they don’t know it) and may God’s kingdom come and His will be done!
