Vision: Promise of the Future

I want to teach my children to have a close relationship with our Lord and Savior. Prayer habits that last a lifetime are most often formed in childhood. As adults model meaningful prayer lives, kids will learn how they, too, can talk to their Creator. That’s why each day this month I will be writing a prayer inspired by a different letter of the alphabet and sharing an accompanying verse from the Bible.

Jesus said, “I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.”
Matthew 26:64


Almighty Father, through Your Word I have seen Your glory, and in Your promises I have placed my hope. Let the vision of Your mighty power strengthen me against the world’s terrors. Help me to comfort those overcome by anxiety, worry and despair by proclaiming Your marvelous Word. I pray that the revelation of Your plans becomes my desire, and the truths of scripture becomes my hope and certainty. Replace my futile imaginings with the glorious vision of Your will for us all. Amen.
