Praying with Paul: 'Look to the End'

Friday, May 7, 2021

1 Corinthians 15:26

Dear Father, destroyer of every enemy,

Help me to look to the outcome, to the end of things, when Christ will deliver the kingdom to you after destroying every ruler, every authority, and every power.

Enable me to keep my eyes on his victory, for he must reign until he has put all enemies under his feet.

Motivate me to focus on the time when even the last enemy, Death itself, will be destroyed by our Lord.

In his name I pray. Amen.
