Praying with Paul: 'The Mystery Disclosed'

Thursday, May 12, 2022

1 Corinthians 15:51-57

Dear Father, keeper of every promise,

Thank you for disclosing to us the mystery of what is to come! Keep us looking forward to that moment when we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.

Thank you that some of us will not even have to die but will rise to meet the Savior in the air.

Praise be to you, Almighty Father. By your will the last trumpet will sound. The dead will be raised imperishable. We shall all be changed. You will make our perishable nature imperishable, our mortal nature immortal.

Then you will bring to pass what is written, "Death is swallowed up in victory." "O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?"

Thanks be to you, gracious Father, for making us more than conquerors now and for guaranteeing us final victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!

In the name of Jesus I lift my voice to you on high. Amen.
