Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father God, I thank You for the glorified scene this passage describes, and I praise You for Your eternal grace, mercy, and love! I am so excited when I think about dwelling with You in the New Jerusalem, with all its beauty and majesty, and with no need for sun, moon, or artificial lights, because the city possesses Your glory and the light of the Lamb! I thank You that no temple will be needed, because I will be able to worship You perfectly face to face. I pray all of this in the mighty and precious name of Jesus, Amen.
