My Father in heaven, even now I hope in the someday – when the joy of fulfillment will be my sight as the pleasures of eternal taste which binds me to my Savior finally erupt into the heavenly promises at the glorious table of feasting. Too long has my soul been starving for sustenance which You provide as manna from Your Word. Too long have my soul’s cravings been dulled by the unsatisfactory provision of worldly taste. Lord, feed me from Your mighty hand of grace. I open my mouth wide to receive the filling that only You can give. Let my empty crevices not create a longing which leads me toward the deceptive enticements of temporary promises which come from this world. I look to You for everything that I need. I come to You for the equipping. Let me lay every hunger upon the altar of my King. Even now, I believe in the someday – when my soul will never hunger again. Under the Word given in Revelation 21:4-5 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more,
neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore,
for the former things have passed away.”
And He who was seated on the throne said,
“Behold, I am making all things new.”
Revelation 21:4-5, ESV
