Finish Strong




Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. Revelation 5:8  

Great Covenant-keeping God.  All of Your promises are trustworthy and true. All of life’s questions are answered in You.  You are the Answer. You are the Source of all life.  The Sustainer of all things. In You we have life.  
We worship You as the Fountainhead of all blessing, the Source of all life, the Wellspring of wisdom, the Key to knowledge, the Foundation of faith, the Doorway to glory. We worship You as the One who supplies strength to the weary, increases power to the faint and offers escape to the tempted. We worship You as the One who sympathizes with the hurting, shields the defenseless, enriches the poor, sustains the helpless and shelters the homeless. You give purpose to the aimless, comfort to the lonely, fruit to the barren, beauty to the meek, a future to the hopeless and Life to the lifeless!            
We worship You as the One who was slain to purchase people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. When at last You assert Your right to rule and reign on the earth, fulfilling Your Father’s redemption plan, the golden bowls of incense, which are the prayers of the saints, will be full. (Revelation 5:8)  It will be then that the Throne room in Heaven will be filled with the sound of a new song.  We join our voices with the multitudes in Heaven as we sing our praise and worship to You now…  
We believe that our prayers to You have been collected in the golden bowls that are even now filling with the incense of our praise and worship.  We believe this may be the last prayer necessary to fill the bowls completely to the brim, ushering You visibly onto the world stage once again, this time in power and glory.  
You are Lord of lords and King of kings. We worship You as the Alpha and the Omega.  The Beginning and the End. Human history began in response to Your powerful Word; and human history, as we know it, will end with Your loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the blast of Your trumpet.  You will raise to life the dead who had placed their faith in You.  Then suddenly, in the twinkling of an eye, we, Your people; we, who love and trust You; we who remain alive on the earth; we will be caught up together in the air with You and the risen dead, and we will live forever in our Heavenly Home. With You!  Hallelujah!  Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns.  Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory!


Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!
