Prayer for 2 Corinthians 5:1

“For we know that if our earthly house, a tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for my life and the knowledge that by grace through faith I have been made a new creation in Christ and that this earthly body will be replaced with a heavenly dwelling, not made with hands but formed and fashioned by my God and Saviour. Thank You for the words of encouragement in Paul's letter to the Corinthians, that no matter what trials, tribulation, persecution and pain we may have to face while living in this earthly tent, we have the assurance of a permanent building from God - an eternal house in the heavens, for which we praise and thank You. Keep me ever mindful that this world is not my home and that my citizenship and eternal inheritance is kept for me in heaven. Thank You that one day I will be dressed in immortality and be made like unto Jesus - my God and my Saviour. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
