They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst
anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor
any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst
of the throne will shepherd them and lead
them to living fountains of waters. And God
will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
Dear God, only you take away pain and suffering. You lift our burdens and bring comfort in your perfect timing.
Keep my eyes heavenward. When my thoughts stray to worry about the future or regret the past, lift my eyes up so that I will focus on the ultimate goal.
Bring freedom to my friends, who are living in and regretting their pasts. Give them the strength to let go and remind them that you will wipe every tear from their eyes.
Thank you for sending your Son to us and quenching all of our thirsts. And thank you for fulfilling all of your promises.
In the name of the Living Water, amen.
