Evening Prayer

Scripture: After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Revelation 7:9-10)

The good news is that we know the end from the beginning. We know how the story turns out. God’s mission will be a success. And that means that we are free to try, free even to fail. It also means that we don’t have to take on the whole project by ourselves. Instead, God calls us to focus on our little corner of the vineyard—our families, our neighborhoods, our workplaces—and to serve faithfully there.

Prayer: Father, your mission is far grander than anything I could put together. And it’s way beyond what I could accomplish. Thank you that you have revealed to me that all has been accomplished. Help me to rest in that knowledge, even as I pray that you would bless the work that I did today to advance that mission. Amen.
