Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. (2 Peter 3:11-13 ESV)
Almighty God, our dear Father in heaven ~ we acknowledge your awesome power that is able to create entire worlds where there was nothing! You are the Sovereign Lord of Lords and have a good and perfect plan for everything you have done. Help us mere mortals whose ancestor you fashioned from the very dust of this temporary structure we call our earthly home. Give us greater spiritual insight into your plan to save humanity from the penalty of sin which we commit. Help us to strive for the perfection that we know is possible for your children who are washed in the pure blood of Christ our dear Lord. Give us wisdom and strength to be good and faithful servants who are eager to do good as long as we dwell in these mortal bodies. Forgive us for the times when we have been distracted by the things of this material world. Open our eyes to see the glory of your Son who loves us and cares for us when we may despair over temporary inconveniences. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
