A prayer response to Revelation 21:1-4,
the holy city and the new creation
O Father, the new creation!
How we long for it!
All the root of sin and
all the fruit of sin
will be gone
completely and forever.
But surely the crown of the new creation
will be the crown of the first creation:
made in Your own image,
breath of Your own breath,
life of Your own life.
We who were once
stained by sin,
bound by death,
far away and
will be the pure and glorious bride of
Your own dear Son.
As His bride, we will not arise from the earth but will
descend from heaven itself,
perfectly prepared and
In Jesus Christ, Your holy and loving Son, we will be
intimately joined with You
in perfect, constant, eternal union,
with all trace of separation gone forever.
One with You, Father.
One in Your Son, Jesus Christ.
O Lord, how we long for His return!
How we yearn for our joining!
