Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.
Text: Luke 21:6
“These things that you see–the days will come when not one stone will be left on another that will not be thrown down.” (Christian Standard Bible)
Father, give us eyes and hearts for things eternal. Even the things that we try to build for your glory, help us to realize they are not forever. They are not the ends but simply a means. Help us to value the things that truly last–your glory, your word, and the souls of people. Help us to value them more than we value what we can hold. Amen.
