I posted today’s prayer at midnight last night, when it only had seven verses. However, this morning, when I was praying without words, I suddenly received the final couplet, which makes it complete. So that email followers don’t miss this, I’m now posting the final version for their sake.
A thoroughfare will be there – it will be called the Way of Holiness (Isaiah 35:8; NET).
Follow Christ on the way of love:
Worship Him who reigns above.
Learn from Christ on the way of faith:
Worship Him and seek His face.
Talk with Christ on the way of prayer:
Worship Him, our thoroughfare.
Serve with Christ on the way of light:
Worship Him both day and night.
Weep with Christ on the way of pain:
Worship Him who rose again.
Walk with Christ on the way of death:
Worship Him; one final breath
Then rest with Christ when life is past,
And worship Him with joy, at last.
Lord, though I’m on the way of dust,
I’ll worship you with steadfast trust.
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you (Isaiah 26:3; NIV).
The LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul (Genesis 2:7; KJV).
You were made from dust, and to dust you will return (Genesis 3:19; NLT).
The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).
Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.” “No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me” (John 14:1; NLT).
Those who follow godly paths will rest in peace when they die (Isaiah 57:2; NLT).
