Sealed for Salvation [Prayer]
4 The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. 5 Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say: “You are just in these judgments, O Holy One, you who are and who were; 6 for they have shed the blood of your holy people and your prophets, and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.” 7 And I heard the altar respond: “Yes, Lord God Almighty,
true and just are your judgments.” Rev 16:4-7 NIV
May your hand be ready to help me.
I long for your salvation, O Lord.
Let me live that I may praise you,
And live each day by your word.
May my tongue sing your praises toward heaven.
May my heart hold dear your love laws;
May your hand forever help me;
Please close temptation’s doors.
When the seven angels leave your temple in heaven
With God’s bowls of wrath in their hands,
May I be covered with your sealing,
As, with you alone, can I stand.
May I be taken to heaven,
Where your city of gold waits prepared
For those who’ve forsaken this world
And all on the altar have bared.
I long daily for your salvation.
It is time for your end as Judge;
To destroy the proud and haughty,
Who from their wickedness refuse to budge.
The faithless I view with loathing—
Deliver me according to your grace.
For I have chosen to worship you,
And long to look into your face.
You are my Judge and my Jury;
You are my Savior divine.
I surrender my all to you daily—
My spirit with yours entwine.
I thank you I am Sealed For Salvation
For that’s something only you can do.
I depend solely upon your grace and mercy,
And long for your Second Coming too!
