A Prayer of Blessing: Meaning and Promise
They will not build and another occupy; they will not plant and another eat [the fruit]. For as the lifetime of a tree, so will be the days of My people, and My chosen [people] will fully enjoy [and long make use of] the work of their hands. They will not labor in vain, or bear children for disaster; for they are the descendants of those blessed by the LORD, and their offspring with them.
Isaiah 65:22-23 AMP
Reflect on this statement, inspired by today’s Scripture, and let it guide you into prayer:
I believe we have been brought into this world for redemption rather than destruction, peace rather than panic, completeness rather than emptiness, and the glorification of Your name rather than frustration.
Lord, I'm so grateful that we belong to You. You have saved us from a life of emptiness---empty words, empty promises, empty desires, empty thoughts, empty goals,
empty work, and empty choices. Your life has freed us, as a family, from empty relationships with each other.
Thank You for Your grace, Your power, and Your love. Thank You for Your promise that we will not face a hopeless, worthless, and meaningless future. I believe we have been brought into this world for redemption rather than destruction, peace rather than panic, completeness rather than emptiness, and the glorification of Your name rather than frustration.
Thank You, Father, for the blessings that You have extended to me and my family. I know that in every circumstance of life, You are working all things together for our good and to fulfill Your purposes.
Lord, You have saved us from a life of emptiness.
