Prayer for Luke 2:26

“It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he saw the Lord's Messiah.”

Praying through Luke 2:26

Heavenly Father, thank You for the beautiful example of Simeon, the godly old man who was given the beautiful promise that he would not see death until he had seen Jesus, the promised Messiah and Saviour of the world. May I demonstrate the same devotion to You as Simeon, as I look in eager expectation for Jesus’ any day return. Teach me Your way, illuminate my heart, guide me into all truth, and align my thoughts to Your thoughts so that my life may honour You. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
