A Prayer For The Heavenbound

“Father, all the goals and strategies that I set for my life culminate in the blessing of knowing that as I press on I will eventually hear You say to me, “Well done, good and faithful servant”!  “You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary….I will give the right to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.”   You grant the eternal prize for remaining steadfast and faithful in my Christian walk.  Others in this world may earn titles and win prizes for worthy earthly pursuits, but the greatest prize that I will ever obtain is my entrance into heaven where I will see you face to face.  And amazingly it was not because I earned it but because of Your merciful pardon of my sin.  May my outlook be bright today as my heart is heavenbound.  Amen.”
