Prayer

Reckoning

“I am nothing” (Job 40:4; NLT).

The LORD knows people’s thoughts; he knows they are worthless (Psalm 94:10; NLT).

“Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near” (Matthew 4:17; NLT).

“I am now an old man and don’t know the day of my death” (Genesis 27:2; NIV).

“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour” (Matthew 25:13; NIV).


Lord,
We are nothing before you.
You know all about us,
And, in the end,
Will justly punish us
For our judgemental thoughts,
Abusive words,
And unkind deeds.

Please look on us with mercy!
Help us to repent,
Turn from our sins,
Ask your forgiveness,
And change our selfish lives,
Before the day
Of reckoning arrives –

For we do not know
The day, or hour,
Of our death.
