Prayer based on Luke 6:23. Themes: Reward, Persecution, Prophets.
Dear Heavenly Father,
I come before you today with a heart full of gratitude and joy. I thank you for the promise that you have given us in Luke 6:23, that we should rejoice and leap for joy because our reward is great in heaven.
Lord, I claim this promise today and I ask that you help me to always remember that my reward is not of this world, but it is waiting for me in heaven. Help me to keep my eyes fixed on you and to trust in your promises, even when things may seem difficult or uncertain.
Thank you for the example of the prophets who came before us and endured persecution and hardship for the sake of your name. May their faithfulness inspire us to remain steadfast in our own journey of faith.
I pray that you would continue to guide me and strengthen me as I seek to follow you. May my life be a reflection of your love and grace, and may I always find my joy and hope in you.
In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Verse: Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven, for their fathers did the same thing to the prophets.
This is a Promise. The verse promises that those who are persecuted for their faith will receive a great reward in heaven, just as the prophets before them did. The reader is encouraged to rejoice and leap for joy in the midst of persecution, knowing that their reward is secure.
