The Lord's Return: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - December 31

What an amazing place to end our journey.

Barring unforeseen events on this final day of 2012, Jesus Christ, the Messiah of Israel and hope of the nations, will not return in 2012. We will usher in 2013 knowing that there is still work to be done, but that His return is still something we can anticipate with hope. Please read page 978.

My prayer for today: "Come Lord Jesus". Oh Lord, we wait for Your coming and we long to hasten it by seeing the Gospel taken to all nations. We pray for the speediest possible evangelization fo the world, including every unreached people group, area, city, and nation. We pray that the church worldwide will restore the Great Commission to the heart of its ministry purposes. We pray for our individual role in Your message getting to the ends of the earth, and for our locals churches to grow in missionary zeal and commitment in 2013. Thank You for this journey. Use the prayers we have prayed for Your glory and Your kingdom purposes. Come, Lord Jesus.

Thank you for joining me on this journey. I've learned so much. Whatever God calls you to focus on in prayer for the next year, please keep His kingdom purposes close to your heart. He is worthy to receive glory, and honor, and power, because He created all things - including the nations.
