After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” Revelation 7:9-10
Lord God, all Holiness, Ever-Faithful, we turn to you, worshipping the Splendor of your Majesty, and earnestly praying that your kingdom may come. We pray for the second coming of Jesus and the day of judgment, which will seal the fate of each soul confronting you for their reward according to their lives lived on the earth. May your Jerusalem really come on earth, with all the blessed and saintly multitude who are allowed to gather around Jesus Christ through forgiveness of sins and the resurrection.
Shine your light into the hearts of human beings in our present time, to instill hope into our hearts and to deepen our belief so that we may realize our faults and seek the forgiveness of our sins, and so that people may find the joy of salvation. Remember those in great distress, Lord. Come with your help to those struggling with sin or death, for help can come from you alone.
May we rejoice, knowing that Jesus, the Lamb of God, has already gained salvation for the world and we need not fear, living exemplary and committed Christian lives and walking with the Lord, for we are children of our Father and we know that you have embraced us as your children. Nothing can help us except the love of our Heavenly Father. We wait for this love to lead us to you, in Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
