Scripture

Revelation 22:7-21

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Who has a promise of blessing in this passage? What is Jesus’ last statement in all of Scripture?

Application

Am I keeping the words of this prophecy? Do I eagerly say, along with John, “Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!”?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord God, I ask that You would help me to obey Your Word. I ask that Your Spirit would empower me to live in the holiness and righteousness that have been given to me in Christ. I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end! I thank You for washing my spiritual robe in His blood so that I can have access to the tree of life and can enter into the Eternal City by the gates. Thank You for giving me the water of life free of charge. My heart’s cry rings with that of Your servant John: Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!

Pray to BLESS!
One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)
