December 31 - The Lord’s Return

Pray today

The last prayer in the Bible is “Come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22:20). Peter tells us that we should be “waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God” (2 Peter 3:12 ESV). How better can we do it than by praying for the fulfilment of Genesis 12:3, Revelation 7:9-10 and Matthew 24:14? Pray for the speediest possible evangelization of the world, of every unreached people group, area, city and nation.

Your part in achieving this. What is God's will for your life? In the coming year, are you willing to do whatever He commands regarding the needs of the world? Is it possible God is calling you to a specific ministry in praying, supporting or going to the ends of the earth for your Master?
